The TriRetrograde gets loud with a new minute repeater complication. Milus
takes their Tirion TriRetrograde watch case, makes some changes, and adds a much more complicated movement for the upcoming Milus Minute Repeater TriRetrograde watch. While the original Tirion models
were very nice and suitable as daily wears, the Minute Repeater goes into the collector's zone - meaning it will be much more expensive and likely a bit more delicate. Problem with minute repeaters (can be activated to "repeat" the time back to you in an audible format) is that the little 'time code' songs they play is not very loud. Sure you can hear the dance of the hammers on the gongs in a quiet room, but in public? Forget about it.
The Tirion style 46mm wide case is 14mm thick and in 18k rose gold. Inside the watch is a new movement for the brand to use (I believe). It is the hand wound caliber M08-35RM with a large 90 hours of power reserve. You can see the impressive movement through the watch caseback. Very nice look for a minute repeater with an interesting bridge design. Interestingly enough this movement has been COSC Chronometer certified, super rare among minute repeater watches.
The dial design has been changed just a bit. Notable is the centrally mounted hand for the date dial, as opposed to the previous watch that had the date at 6 o'clock (which I liked better). A bit more decoration on the dial itself for the Minute Repeater, as well as fancier movement decor through the partially open dial. Like I said, for a daily wear the much more reasonably priced automatic Tirion model makes a better choice, but the Minute Repeater will be a good collection marquee. The piece will be limited to 50 pieces.
