The Snow Star

From Milus -

The third, and in many ways for some of us, most exciting piece in the initial three model family offering for Milus is the Snow Star.

As I previously mentioned, I got more than a jump on my colleagues in the 4th and 5th Estate as Milus was one of the brands participating at The HYPE during BaselWeek this past March.  

The former Sleeping Beauty was awoken from a rather unfortunate slumber a few years ago when the brand was purchased by none other than Luc Tissot.

It is available in the silver version (above) which is based on the original -

The red date is that extra something that really adds to the watch.
The only thing that I would change?  I would use an "inverted cyclops" date window for the crystal, as I think it adds a certain "what's it" to the watch overall.

It is also available in a very attractive black version -

The case is a very welcome 39 mm in diameter, and is of polished stainless steel.  A very traditionally laid out dial, hours minutes, seconds and date.  The movement is ETA's 2892A2  (TOP).

And the packaging is actually useful!

Priced (at least in my opinion) quite fairly at CHF 1,690, direct from Milus.
