Powerwind Diver 1000 'Rainbow'
Description

For auction is a rare 1960 Mido Powerwind 1000 'Rainbow' ref 5907 1st series no date feet decompression scale 38mm automatic cal. Mido 917PO stainless steel. Wonderful rare find is a great watch with a few minor issues: 1. the original gold dauphine hands were cracked and replaced with almost identical gold dauphine hands (this watch was bought from original family and never had hands replaced and it wasn't born with a pencil minutes hand) and 2. the original bezel was lost and replaced with a similar but not exact bezel. Beyond these issues this is a stellar Rainbow diver; case is very nice, dial is lovely and vibrant with a light and even patina and even the replacement bezel looks terrific. Crystal was replaced with an impossible to find original Mido signed crystal when the watch was recently overhauled. Until one experiences this watch in person one cannot know how incredible it is; an amazing and important vintage diver.
