    I have for sale from my collection this excellent, unpolished Mido in stainless steel with gorgeous 60’s styling. It was serviced about 2 1/2 years ago just before I took possession, and it continues to set, wind, and run beautifully. The sale is for the head only. If you absolutely must have a strap, I might be able to dig one up to include before shipping.

    Please check out all the photos, as they are a vital part of the description.

    With just a few blemishes, I consider the watch to be in excellent condition. Of note in particular, I see a small scratch on the bezel at 9 o’clock, the outer part of the crystal at 3o’clock and again in the center. These are hard to notice with the naked eye, so overall, still a very beautiful example of 70’s Mido style!

    Case is 35.6mm. Wears much larger, as the bezel is only 1.2 mm wide!

    10.5mm thick, Lugs 18mm.



    Addendum: Note: In the first few pics ‘SUN’ in the day window is already starting to move to ‘MON’ position, so it doesn’t look perfectly aligned. So, no worries here, once the day switch has been made, the letters are perfectly aligned within the window.

    Price: reduced to $450 :)tracked shipping inclusive if conUS

    I would prefer a sale within the continental United States, but I might consider otherwise if I feel the opportunity to make the extra costs and trip to the post office to do so. Sale final Unless the watch is not as described and depicted.

    message me here if you have any questions or would like to see additional photos.

    Thanks for looking!

    I was asked for a movement picture… Sorry, but I don’t have one, Nor can I open it, as it is a front loader, so the standard case-opening tools don’t work with this one.

    This watch was serviced in September 2018 according to my friend, the previous owner, and it still runs, winds, and changes day and date like the champion Mido that it is!
