The Herios TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton is a fine example of the strengths of Milus in both design and technology. This exciting new timepiece offers connoisseurs and aficionados a sophisticated and fascinating look at three different sectors showing the passing of sixty seconds via three twenty retrograde seconds segments.
The powerful polished stainless steel case highlights a black lacquered dial with its distinctive stylized Arabic numerals. The heart of the dial shows a round silver-coloured inner skeleton that encircles the three retrograde seconds displays and the skeleton blue hour and minutes hands. The retrograde seconds hands work in ‘flying relay’: starting at 6 o’clock the first hand times 20 seconds then jumps back whilst the next retrograde seconds hand at 10 o’clock takes up the count, followed by the third segment situated at 2 o’clock.
This extravagant Herios TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton honours the passage of time … for every second counts.
