Highly regarded sometimes underrated Mido Powerwind 17 Jewel SuperAutomatic Watch.

1954 was the first year Mido introduced their new self winding mechanism--the 917 P Caliber, Powerwind Superautomatic was born. This I believe is one of the earlier models produced during this time frame especially given the serial number on the case, estimate from 1954 to late 1950's made.

Original Beautiful Cream White Dial with Mid Century Retro Modern Silver Hour Markers and Silver Hour and Second Hands. Silver Stainless Steel Case. Acrylic Crystal, Embossed "Mido" Crown/Stem. Silver Case Men's Dress Watch. 17 Jewel Automatic - Self Winding, Working properly. Black Padded Grain Leather Band.

Condition: Watch runs and keeps time, self winding mvt quality shows. Movement is clean and intact, rotor and flywheel moves smoothly. Watch is pre-worn with minimal/marginal wear. Watch dial face is intact with some natural wear, slight color fade mostly--again a cream white in color. A few small spots of darker discoloration spots--one right of the 12 o'clock Hour Marker. Would have to look close to notice these minor imperfections--again mostly age related. Otherwise dial is wonderful in condition and the light patina to me adds value and authenticity than takes away. Watch crystal at some point must have been a replacement -- and has a few light scuffs but minimal. Clear visibility and intact. As long as I have had it worn with care and attempts to preserve. Watch sase has a few scuffs and very small fine line scratches but none detracting or obvious. Back Stainless Steel cover has back scraps, scratches and wear, but intact. Comes with a new padded black leather band. Overall in fine working condition.

Note: The name Mido is taken from Spanish means "to measure". This watch is for special appreciation tastes. Mido has always had knowledgeable watch insiders full respect, many believing that this watch company was often underrated and belongs in the world of high end watches. True Mido seemed to have less fanfare than some of the other high end giants watch makers exposure, but the impact and reviews historically have always consistent with this watch company as innovative and of remarkable quality.

This watch I have treasured and can't say enough about and know it will add to anyone's appreciation of a true quality vintage watch. Ask any questions and Enjoy!
