Luxury Watches: Since Baselworld 2009, the watch industry has seen the reemergence of the classic, hand-crafted timepiece. Technology has met craftsmanship to produce some of the most advanced and visually stunning watches the world has ever seen. From the rebirth of the tourbillon to the new emphasis on complications, watch makers have been stretching to the limits of their creativity and beyond.
Aside from the already exclusive use of extravagant materials, Milus continues to set itself apart from the crowd with one of the most innovative dials of the season. Traditional faceted hour and minute hands are made of red gold in this version and are partially coated by white SuperLuminova. These hands indicate the rose gold colored Arabic numerals and indices at the edge of the dial. But where things get intriguing is toward the center of the dial.
The industry has seen watch complications that have included small seconds in 60-second counters and some 30-second counters, but this is where Milus breaks the mould. The Milus Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton features the bold retrograde seconds function in three sectors of 20 seconds each at 2, 6 and 10 o'clock.
Each seconds hand is in the shape of an oscillating rotor made of the 18k rose gold, lending the watch an even more unique look. Starting in the center at 6 o'clock, the first rotor performs the first 20 seconds ride before swinging instantly back to its starting position, followed by the same action by the rotor at 10 o'clock and then 2 o'clock, repeating tirelessly, minute after minute.
True to the initiative of the brand, Milus's designs routinely question industry standards and put them ahead of the rest in terms of both aesthetics and technology. Because of this unceasing determination, Milus has become a leader amongst its peers and the Milus Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton Titanium Bicolour stands as yet another example of their unparalleled expertise.
