Mido makes great watches, just little known in the US. They're part of the Swatch group so have ETA movements. I've owned several over the years and can high recommend them.

Really good price, very tempted... However, I think I am gonna hold out for a deal on the original Mido Commander. So classy and unique.

$325 is correct. You have to use code WMMD430325 for this price.

I like everything - and I'm even onboard with the outer rubber bezel. The only thing I don't like is that the outer bezel says Mido on repeat.

Yeah. Sorry about that. Lots of auto correct and didn't mean to hit send. Corrected it

Looks like a pretty neat watch, although I never heard about this brand

It's a fail on a number of levels, primarily absolutely wasted dial space and cringingly pointless bling.

Deals on Swiss automatics are common. Deals on Swiss automatics that are deals for any reason other than the watch being a retinal-scarring nightmare (what I call the "Joe's New Balance Reality"), not so common.

No need to be pardoned. Watches are a deep subject despite having a single purpose in our multi-function device lives Smilie

In this case, the difference will come down to movement and of course the style of the watch, the Eterna is definitely more conservative, the MIDO more modern. As for the movement, MIDO as part of the Swatch group which owns ETA, utilizes the ETA 2824 movement to power this watch. Eterna is using Sellita's SW200-1 movement. The funny part is, the designs for the ETA 2824 movement are SO OLD that Sellita is able to just rip them off, and they do just that: https://www.ablogtowatch.com/maki...ta-2824-2/

Both are made in Switzerland and both use the exact same design, but some people are stickler's for the ETA brand name, though I personally don't find them to be any different with modern manufacturing techniques. The funny thing is, for Swiss automatics, unless you're paying a fortune for say a Rolex, most companies will utilize Sellita or ETA and you're getting the same internals on any Swiss automatic. Some brands will even call a movement an "in house" movement, meaning they make it themselves, but the reality is they might add one extra complication to an existing ETA movement. For example, Ball Watch Company sells watches in the low thousand to 3k range and most of the work they do on ETA movements involves beefing them up and using higher grade materials to get higher shock resistance and occasionally adding complications like a thermometer believe it or not.

As for quality of MIDO vs Eterna, they're likely very close, these both have quality Swiss movements, sapphire crystal, and brands that are noted for a relatively high level of fit and finish. I think you would be satisfied with either.
