The Mido Ocean Star reference 5907, part of the Ocean Star Series, was apparently released in 1961 through 1965. Known also as the “Rainbow Diver” and “Powerwind 1000”, the Mido ref 5907 is known best for its colorful “exotic” dial, with bright concentric rings highlighting decompression times for depths down to 149 feet. The watch is a patented Bernard Taubert in June 1960 front-loading design, measures 38 mm across all patches, 45 mm lug to lug and featuring a bidirectional bezel, with black paint for the numbers, marks, and dot. The colorful Dial is designed to prevent confusion during dives, with each concentric circle representing the decompression period necessary completed by the black outer edge of the dial, beyond the last light-blue ring. The white center circle and black background color where depths are shown at 12 o’clock. Inside the center concentric circle are numerals 3, 6, 9 and 12, with the applied “Mido” emblem just below the 12. Combination of dauphine hour and pencil minute with luminous material finish the dial. The bracelet is the particular Bonklip Style, manufactured by B. H. Britton and Sons.
