FrontRunners: Sound Effects

The $260,000 Tirion Répétition Minutes TriRetrograde (www.milus.com) introduces the watchmaker’s first-ever minute repeater—which chimes hours, quarter hours, and minutes—along with Milus’ signature triple-retrograde seconds display (three sequential 20-second displays every minute). Milus developed this, its first high-complication design, in collaboration with complication specialist La Fabrique du Temps, which is gaining recognition among connoisseurs because of the quality of its repeater mechanisms. The sound of the Répétition is clear and resonant, and the movement is an appealing single integrated mechanism. Milus will produce only 50 examples.
