A real eye-catcherBASELWORLD 2014: The MILUS Tirion TriRetrograde
Aesthetic refinement and technical sophistication come together once again in the latest Milus Tirion TriRetrograde model. This fascinating balance of contrasts, a brand trademark, appears at many different levels with this new timepiece. The classic 45-millimetre case in pink gold supports a modern, narrow carbon bezel.
The interplay of these two materials continues on the watch face, where the gold-edged hour and minute hands, and the three golden second hands, display time on two intricately superimposed carbon dials, skeletonised so as to offer a deep look inside the watch.
This Tirion TriRetrograde is a real eye-catcher. The hour and day Arabic numerals in gold and white luminescent mass respectively alternate rhythmically on the outer ring. They are only interrupted by the date aperture at 6 o’clock. The sensual roundness of the watch’s exterior gives way to unfettered dynamism expressed by the very masculine arrangement of the three second arcs that operate at the heart of the dial, their hands shaped like winding rotors.
This latest Tirion TriRetrograde is perfectly finished at all levels. Even the crown fits snuggly in the elegant curve of the case. Inside this stunning timepiece is a high-capacity automatic movement that ensures a power reserve of 40 hours at least. The faceted hour and minute hands are partly coated in luminescent mass for excellent readability in the dark. And the watch comes with a black alligator strap that exudes a combination of refinement and robustness.
