Imagining that US Navy pilots were able to save their lives with the Snow Star only, brings lasting emotion and pride to Milus. The reissue of this masterpiece bears this unique distinction with refinement and a sense of adventure.
Originally created in the 1940’s, the Milus Snow Star was designed for US Navy pilots, who carried a box containing a Milus watch and other precious objects to help them survive if forced to land in unknown territory. The items in the box were dedicated to help in their negotiations for information, their freedom, or their lives.
Choosing a Swiss object as a potential bartering item demonstrates the level of technical and aesthetic appreciation and esteem of the Swiss brand all over the world. These qualities of the original Snow Star have been implemented in its modern counterpart.
