    Please identify this Mido for me!

    I just bought this Mido Ocean Star Datoday Commander a few days ago.
    I have searched on a lot of sites and still can't know for sure its identity.
    I am so worried maybe it's a fake although I don't think I'm very bad at realizing a genuine watch (I considered it carefully before buying).

    Its case back is transperent. Its golden rotor says "Mido Commander 25 jewels Swiss Made".
    Its second hand is dark blue, (strange?)
    The dial is pale yellow.
    The crown has "Mido"
    Its bracelets (foled-link) are the only thing that aren't usually seen with a Swiss-made watch.
    T SWISS MADE T is at the 6 position.
    It has one-piece case.
    And at the moment I don't know how to find out any further information about its movement . No qualified retailers nearby to believe!
    Please let me know your ideas of this watch I try to to some photos with my cell phone. Sorry for the bad quality.

    unfortunately that's a miyota (japanese) mov't, which i am about 99% sure were never found in Mido's (a swiss company now owned by swatch). but someone else can prove me wrong. it seems odd that someone would go to the trouble to fit a miyota into a mido case, unless it's a fake from top to bottom. the dial looks very well done if it is in fact a fake. and there's nothing wrong with a miyota movement in and of itself. mysterious.

    now that i think about it, it looks like someone took a random case and bracelet, and stuck in a miyota mov't (which looks like its rotor has been painted with the mido logo) and used an actual mido dial. that's my best guess.

    That´s what I´d call a "marriage".

    I have been wearing it for more than a week, realizing that it's acceptably accurate. this "marriage" is, at the moment, not a bad one.

    Anyway, it helps me to know more about Mido as I had to search on the net a lot for information. Before buying the watch I had no idea of this brand.

    Thank you very much for your opinions!
