MILUS the new Tirion TriRetrograde 42 mm
A new size, and two new faces
As an iconic piece of watchmaking art, the Tirion TriRetrograde has managed to reinvent itself over time. Today, Milus is offering the same timepiece in a 42-mm case, with two dials expressing very individual styles.
Launched in 2008, the Tirion TriRetrograde has all the characteristics needed to become an horological classic. One glance suffices to identify it. Its style: all its own. Its character: assertive. The mechanism is original, with a triple retrograde seconds display shared by three twenty-second sections. The automatic mechanical movement was created by expert engineers.
The whole piece is manufactured with great attention to quality, details, and finishing.
The Tirion TriRetrograde is a perfect example of the “playful spirit of time”, and its unique look has already appeared in many different interpretations. Always the same – and yet it appears different. In the fully openworked Skeleton models, its character is daring and graceful. It has exhibited grandeur in versions allying black steel and gold. When graced with coloured flanges – red, blue, brown, or silver – it became modern, animated and dynamic.
Today, Milus is enriching its flagship collection with a 42- millimetre version, a pure delight for every wrist to accompany the 45- and 47-millimetre models. The innovative aspect is not just only the size. The Tirion 42 is in fact a new model in and by itself, and it comes with two very distinct dials.
The "Clous de Paris" version is in classic contemporary style. The centre of the white dial features a delicate guilloché decor worthy of the great Swiss watchmaking tradition. Showing the passage of the hours, minutes and seconds are blued openworked hands layered with luminescent paint. Blued Roman numerals and applique indices alternate on the silvery flange.
The skeleton model, for its part, exudes a sense of avant-garde and transparency. A charcoal flange frames the image of the triple retrograde mechanism on a sandy grey backdrop. The technical feel is reinforced by small blued screws that hold the silvery bridges, by the openworked hour and minute hands enhanced with a luminescent coating, and by the red second hands.
The two models have a domed sapphire crystal and a transparent case back allowing a deep look into the high-precision Swiss movement.
Tirion 42, a new size and two new faces.
The TriRetrograde mechanism
A Milus exclusive, the 3838 TriRetrograde mechanism displays the seconds on three separate arcs at 6, 9 and 3 o'clock. The three hands travel twenty seconds successively, each "passing the torch" to the next one and returning at lightning speed to its point of departure. This great animated ballet, which keeps repeating itself tirelessly, makes the passage of time a playful and fascinating spectacle.
