Footnotes

First released in the early 1960's and marketed heavily towards divers of the period, the Mido Ocean Star 5907 is best known for it's colourful dial with bright aligned circles. Designed to help the wearer avoid decompression sickness, the rings highlight decompression times allowing a safe return to the surface. Produced originally for only a few short years, the Ocean Star was reissued in 2020 as a limited edition of 1,961 pieces.
