Milus 18K Rose Gold Herios Tri-retrograde Retrograde Seconds Automatic Men’s Watch.
The Milus Herios TriRetrograde watch utilizes a self-winding mechanical movement with three alternating retrograde seconds indicators, each indicator responsible for 20 seconds.
This is a very fun and dynamic complication – the first retrograde second hand starts from 1 and moves to the 4’O clock position for the first 20 seconds. Then as it instantaneously jumps back, the second range on the bottom goes from 5’O clock to 7’O clock for the next 20 seconds, and finally, the third range goes from 8 to11, completing the whole minute.
While most mechanical complications (e.g. perpetual calendars, equation of time, repeaters) are more or less stationary, this piece is fun to look at. The movements of the retrograde second hands are mesmerizing.
No expense was spared in making this watch – the dial is a multi-layered cut-away dial, featuring blued screws, blued hands and ruby bearings. The finishing on the edges of the inner dial are mirror-like, giving a stunning reflection at different light angles. It takes an experienced artisan many hours to craft a dial of this level of detail.
Also, make sure to take a moment to look at the thick and curved sapphire crystal. The purpose is to use the curved, instead of flat, sapphire crystal, is to create a profile consistent with the case. The execution, though very costly, is beautiful.
Milus was founded in Bienne, Switzerland, and is a phenomenal small production watchmaker, combining unique complication with traditional craftsmanship. As the company’s CEO once said, “To some people, luxury means possessing an extravagant item, but luxury can also be much more. As Milus sees it, luxury is highly personal. It is the luxury of being oneself. Be yourself, with Milus.”

Water Resistance - Although we may pressure test a watch prior to being shipped, we do not guarantee any watch to be waterproof and do not cover any water issues under any type of warranty. The reason is because there are too many life factors that can contribute to a watch not being water resistant anymore. Statistically, this applies to even the most careful of watch wearers ...show moreshow less
Box and Papers - All box and papers do is guarantee the box and papers are authentic. The bad guys know that people put trust into original papers so by putting genuine papers with a fake watch allows them to pull off a scam...and when the buyer finds out down the road the watch was fake, the scammer is long gone. The only way to check authenticity is by having the watch checked. As with most preowned watches, the original box and/or papers are not available because they were not retained by the original owner. ...show moreshow less
