When it was created in the 1940s, Milus’ Snow Star offered a dimension of exchange
value, in addition to its vocation for precision and resistance in extreme
environments. Housed in the heart of a pocket box that looked like a survival kit, this
watch was a mandatory element in the equipment of US Navy soldiers. It offered
them an additional chance to survive in the event of capture: if caught or lost in enemy territory, the soldier could trade it for information, a temporary shelter, an escape route and sometimes even life. The pouch also contained other valuables,
some of which were in gold with inscriptions in the local language.
