MILUS Snow Star Watch Snow Star — a history of adventureby Partner Content April 20, 2020 MIN READMILUS Snow Star Watch
Are you a fan of vintage-inspired watches? Then the MILUS Snow Star could be the perfect watch for you…
MILUS is an independent, 101-years old, family-owned Swiss watch brand located in the heart of the Swiss watch industry, Bienne. The brand was recently revived by Luc Tissot, a direct descendant of the famous Tissot watchmaking family. Tissot and his team certainly have an extensive background in the watchmaking field. Accompanying the rebirth of the company is the reissue of the well-regarded Snow Star. A classic from the archives, the Snow Star belongs to the world of tool and military watches popular with many watch enthusiasts.
A watch at the heart of history
The MILUS Snow Star offered a dimension of exchange value when it was created in the 1940s. This watch was a mandatory element in the equipment of US Navy pilots. It offered them an additional chance to survive in the event of capture. If caught or lost in enemy territory, the pilot could trade it for information, a temporary shelter, an escape route, and sometimes even their life.
High-level of technical and aesthetic appreciation
Opting for 904L stainless steel is a statement of intent. The Snow Star’s 39mm housing radiates strength. Behind a curved scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the sleek, highly legible dial combines vintage and casual elements. It comes in either black or in silver. Applied indexes and diamond-cut dauphine hands add depth to a sunray-brushed surface. It displays the hours, minutes, seconds, and the date. Inside the case, MILUS relies on the well-known automatic ETA 2892-A2 (top grade). Operating at 28,800vph, this precise and reliable movement boasts a 42-hour power reserve when fully wound. Furthermore, the case back screws down. This guarantees a water-resistance of 100 meters. A pin buckle clasp, also in 904L stainless steel, secures its leather-lined textile strap.
…you can definitely rely on your Snow Star to find your way back home.
This modern reissue of the MILUS SNOW STAR is straightforward, functional, and timeless. With a price tag of CHF 1,690, the MILUS Snow Star is a worthy option for those looking for an affordable, versatile, retro-styled watch. You never know where you might travel to, but you can definitely rely on your Snow Star to find your way back home. For more information or online orders, visit the official MILUS website.
