The Lab 01

This is one of the three model families introduced by the newly revitalized Milus during BaselWeek at The HYPE this past March.

This is, to my way of thinking, a pretty cool departure from the norm, and what is expected.  Most brands will make a brass dial, paint it and call it done.  Even when they go for some "effects" the effects are really more "affectation".  The dial is of fiberglass!  Think about that for a moment!  

I am a guy trapped in three different periods.  I am a huge fan of Bauhaus, but also of mid-century modern (Eames, et. al.) Atomic Ranch sensibilities.  BUT... I am somewhat partial to things that work well, in a modern context, without needing constant repair and attention.  The Lab 01 ticks all of those boxes for me!

It is available in three different color ways - light grey (above), dark grey and blue.  Having seen them all in person?  They are dope!  And at a suggested retail price of CHF 990?  C'mon, you can't beat that with a stick!

The case measures 40 mm, and is polished stainless steel. Hours, minutes and seconds, the movement is Sellita's SW200.
