Pink Gold MIDO Ocean Star Automatics

"Even though we’re not in the midst of watch show season, there have still been plenty of new watch announcements as of late. The latest to hit the wire – yes, even more recent than yesterday’s Apple Watch hullaballoo – are two new iterations in the Mido Ocean Star Automatic lineup.

As you might expect with a name like the Mido Ocean Star Automatic, these are watches intended to be on or in the water. And if you didn’t expect it, then you’ll be rather surprised by the polished starfish on the caseback, no? Any which way, the 42.5mm steel case (here, with pink gold PVD finishes) carries a 200m WR rating, which will be plenty to keep things nice and dry if you decide to take a dip. All of that is to keep the Caliber 80 movement (read up on those movement specs down below) safe while it accumulates that 80-hour power reserve from your movements."

That blue version gives me a throbbing boner.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I'm not feeling it but some people have come around.

Jeebus-that was 6 years ago!!
I started to like bronze about a year ago based on pictures and a recommendation of a storied and wise Lord.
Having gained a bit of patina myself since 2012 I now feel a strong connection with bronze cased watches.
