I purchased a Mido secondhand, and I wanted to find out more about it. I have already sent an email to Mido HQ, but until I hear back from them, I assumed that this would be the best forum to ask my questions (if there is a better forum for this, please let me know!).
It is in very clean condition . . . like it's been stored in a drawer. The bracelet appears to be original, as it fits the case perfectly and is signed. Here is a picture of the dial and of the caseback:
I haven't opened the caseback yet, because . . . frankly, I was afraid to before checking here first. I assume that it opens from the back, but I seem to recall that some of Mido's watches are monocoque, and therefore can only be opened from the front?
Prominent on the caseback is a sticker with the letters "AN" in the center. Underneath two numbers are engraved: 45460 and 1929.
That's pretty much all I know. Any idea how to open it? When it was made? What the movement should be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
