2012 brings us back to the past… In the 1940s, US Navy pilots used to take a collection of precious objects along on their missions. These so-called “Life Barter Kits”, which were conceived to ensure survival of the owners, contained, notably, a Milus Snow Star watch. In homage to this flagship model from its history – and history in general

The series is limited to three pieces world-wide and one of them is reserved for the star of the leather ball.
