The Mido caliber 00916P was part of the first “Powerwind” series, which was released in the beginning 1950ies and was the first series to offer a rotor winding mechanism. These movements were made by AS exclusively for Mido.
The 00916P still uses a direct decentral second indication; later models used an indirect driven center second hand.
