The Day of the Dead is the most famous Mexican tradition in the world, to the extent that countless brands and artists have taken it as an influence for impressive projects. One example is Mido, the Swiss watchmaker, which has reinterpreted its iconic Commander in a limited edition that pays tribute to Mexican culture.
The Commander Shade Limited Edition Tradition is a piece made especially for Mexico, and stands out from the start for an impressive dial that rests on a 37 mm polished steel case. It stands out for its Super-LumiNova engraving that shows a skull, the most representative symbol of Mexican traditions, which is complemented by indexes with the same technology, polished and coated with black varnish. The hands take up the luminous technology, for greater readability. The heart of the Commander Shade is an automatic movement, water resistant to a pressure of 5 bar, which is held on the wrist by a gauge on a satin steel mesh bracelet with a sliding clasp. This edition is limited to 407 pieces, since in different pre-Hispanic cultures it was believed that there was a process to be born and another to die. When the soul leaving the physical body went through seven tests or dimensions to reach spiritual rest.
