As Madonna will no doubt confirm, the key to success is to keep reinventing yourself, and the Tirion TriRetrograde has managed to do just that very successfully. The Milus Tirion Triretrograde is is now available in a 42-mm case, with two dials expressingwhich express highly differing and individual styles.
Originally launched in 2008, the Tirion TriRetrograde has an original mechanism with a triple retrograde seconds display shared by three twenty-second sections. The automatic mechanical movement was created by expert engineers.The Triretrograde works in a number of different guises; in the fully open-worked Skeleton models it’s graceful. In the black steel and gold it is powerful and with coloured flanges – red, blue, brown, or silver – it’s contemporary and dynamic.
The new 42- millimetre version, has been designed to align itself with he larger to accompany the 45- and 47-millimetre models, and it’s not just about size. The Tirion 42 is a new model with two distinct dials.
In the "Clous de Paris" version the white dial features a delicate guilloché decor in the traditional 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, features a charcoal flange frames against a sandy grey backdrop. Small blued screws hold the silvery bridges, while the open-worked hour and minute hands are enhanced with a luminescent coating.
Both models have a domed sapphire crystal and a transparent case back allowing glimpse of the high-precision Swiss movement.
The TriRetrograde mechanism
Exclusive to Milus, 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, making the passage of time a playful and fascinating spectacle.
