Mido All Dial Review

Mido All Dial Watch Review
  The Mido All Dial (ref. M8340.4.B1.1) is just that, a big open dial as the name suggest. The watch does not have a bezel, making it quite literally almost 42mm of “all dial”. Mido is becoming more recognized, not only for design, but for their unbelievable value in a world largely of over priced time pieces. I will touch back on this in a moment. This is my favorite All Dial, the depth and contrast of dial is beautiful. The bracelet is nicely integrated into the case, though this limits any strap options. Keep in mind this watch can be found under 1K and has the following features: sapphire crystal, display back, chronometer (COSC), day/date display, 100m WR, ETA 22836-2 automatic movement, 25 jewels, decorated rotor, and blued screws. I struggle to think of any watch that comes close to all the features at this price point or even double this price point. The All Dial deserves a good look if you are in the market for a new watch.

Pros - Chronometer, day/date, aesthetics, value

Consideration - Changing to a strap is not an option
