This fine example of an early "bumper" style automatic watch is in stunning near mint condition. The factory printed two tone dial is still bright and sharp, housed in a heavy stainless steel screw back case with original crown and hands. This was a top of the line newly invented automatic watch in the 1940's, produced by the famous Swiss house of Mido. I love the clear printed black numbers and inset small seconds giving it that classic Art Deco feel. Truly a rare and beautiful timepiece in incredible all original condition.
