People do not buy any Old or NOS Mido's 10 years old.
Unless you have access to Mido's parts that is.
I do not in the USA.
My trusty Mido 8269 Commander which I have had since 1995,
is now a dead piece of meat.
The Swatch Group/Mido will not service any time pieces over that age.
So if one takes it to a watch repairer and they crack the crystal taking it out or putting it back in you will not be able to replace it.
If anyone knows of any MIDO parts out there please reply.
Or anyone out there with a parts manual for these watches in need some part #'s for my 8269.
Watchless in Seattle.
