The Mido Ocean Star 200C
When finding the “perfect” dive watch, many things need to be considered depending on the person: design, colours, materials and, of course, reliability. While plenty of brands are making their version of a dive watch, few check off all the boxes that include an excellent package for a phenomenal price. Today, we’re talking about a watch often overlooked in the watch collecting space that offers an array of colour options, a fantastic use of stainless steel and ceramic, and is Swiss-made. Today, we’re talking about the Mido Ocean Star 200C.
The Ocean Star 200C packs a punch in the spec and pricing categories, and with the implementation of a combination of stainless steel and ceramic, the ruggedness and reliability behind the Ocean Star 200C are predominant factors that make this a fantastic watch.
Sporting a stainless steel case 42.5mm in diameter and 12.3mm thick, the Ocean Star 200C may be slightly larger than contemporary dive watches. However, the comfort and wearability, thanks to the slight tapering of the lugs, create a seamless feel on the wrist, especially when paired with a 22mm bracelet or rubber strap.
The Ocean Star 200C implements the use of one of the most excellent materials in watchmaking: ceramic. The unidirectional rotating bezel features a ceramic insert, creating a more rugged yet luxurious look to the watch—the Mido Calibre 80 powers the Ocean Star 200C, which features an 80-hour power reserve and is COSC-certified.
The Mido Ocean Star 200C is a fantastic example of a dive watch that gets the job done and looks excellent. Feel free to check out the Ocean Star 200C and its various colour/bracelet options through Canada Watch House.
