In 1934, the Swiss watchmaking giant “mdash;” Mido, as an old-fashioned independent watch company, for the first time introduced the helmsman series of watches & mdash; & mdash; in the harsh environment can still accurately move the time. Watch. At that time, the United States was in a period of admiration for convection design, and the design of trains, airplanes and even other daily necessities followed this trend. The helmsman series was inspired by this, and the streamlined appearance was used in watch design, and it was a sensation. Now, to trace its roots, Mido has launched a new helmsman series watch to pay tribute to the streamlined era of the last century.
Each era has its own unique challenges and innovations. In 1929, with the emergence of industrial design, streamlined design was born, which became a major turning point in product innovation. Since then, aerodynamic lines and practical engineering have become the focus. At the same time, steel was widely used, and the material processing technology that broke its own limits made the appearance of the product at that time rigid and soft and beautiful.
GeUnder Georges Schaeren, Mido engineers and technicians developed the Helmsman series in 1934. Reliable, sturdy, durable and attractive, these characteristics make it synonymous with precision and high quality once it is on the market. This is why American soldiers are proud to own this watch, and some even sent letters to the Swiss headquarters of Mido to express their satisfaction. These letters can still be found in the Mido Archives.
The new helmsman series reproduces the unique watch culture of that era by assembling the ETA 7750 multifunctional movement, exquisite details, and ingenious features, which fully reflects the characteristics of a multifunctional chronograph watch. With a diameter of 44 millimeters, a thickness of 14.5 millimeters, and a water-resistant depth of up to 100 meters, the new helmsman immediately looks extraordinary in many watches, and it has a high level of aesthetics. Under the sapphire mirror, the dial decorated with Geneva waves or waves pattern interprets the concept of streamline. The outstanding work of the Mido Design Department has fully borrowed the shape of the locomotive side body, and its fixed rivets are also reproduced on the hands of this watch. Further use of Super-LumiNova technology makes the time on the dial clearer and easier to read, even at night.
Luxury watch enthusiasts can also enjoy the high-quality automatic movement and the strong rhythm of mechanical operation through the mineral crystal embedded in the back cover. They must also be amazed by the oscillating weight decorated with Geneva ripples, blue screws and exquisite circular beams.
