By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Milus Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton 1919 Limited Edition won the first price in the category of “Best of Timepieces” at the Couture Design Awards in Las Vegas, NV on May 30th, 2009.

The Couture Design Awards are an institution in and of themselves. For more than 11 years, they have represented the most prestigious and coveted prize for individual designers and brands. Previous winners have become bellwethers for the watch and jewelry industry and have gone on to establish trends. The 2009 submissions epitomize the unparalleled quality and genius in designs only found at Couture – a true representation of innovation and inherent talent from the most creative minds in timepieces and jewelry items.

The Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton 1919, is a limited edition of 38 pieces worldwide, recently launched at BaselWorld 2009. It was in the year 1919 in Bienne, Switzerland when Paul William Junod, a watchmaker trained and experienced in the art and tradition of his craft, set about realizing his dream. He envisaged creating a solid yet elegant watch, a valuable accessory everyone would be eager to own. Ninety years later, the Milus brand stands for exquisite Swiss watches reflecting the pioneering spirit and ideals of its founder. The TIRION TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton 1919 limited edition is a tribute to the Milus design tradition and a homage to the passing of time.

The name of the Tirion is derived from the constellation of Orion, one of the most easily recognizable and brightest in the heaven. The Tirion TriRetrograde Seconds Skeleton 1919 is an exquisite 18K red gold 6N version, the gold tone used at the beginning of the last century. The exact rhythm of the retrograde seconds function in three sectors of 20 seconds each is given by a Swiss quality mechanical movement in an exclusive special version with automatic winding.
