Victorinox? Is there a pocket knife blade present anywhere? :lol: :mrgreen: Sorry, but I couldn’t resist – and there WERE in fact watches having a knife blade made by Victorinox:

my apologies for the influence... ;)
looks great on the corfam band, case in really nice shape - was it like that or did you have it refinished? looks unworn

Mido Ocean Star for Friday
probably early 1960s, signed bracelet

I purchased it from a gentleman in Denver. He shared with me, he bought it out of a lot from a closed Jewelry store. It came in a box with an aftermarket black leather band. Other than yours, I have not seen another. It appears to be all original and pristine. This all would be assuming it was issued with a brushed finish. There is a slight scratch on the crystal at 1. It is a something other than plastic. I can't imagine finding a crystal would be easy. Have you had to replace yours?

I haven't tried to replace the crystal
I have an old advertisement with this watch on it that shows a red and blue suede band - looks pretty cool too
The case looks to have a brushed finish in the ad, so yours looks spot on original to me..
