Maurice Lacroix Breathtaking Chronographe Squelette Watch

Jan 12, 2010
The world-famous watchmaker Maurice Lacroix has released its Masterpiece collection, manufactured in the spirit of respect for tradition and at the cutting edge of technology.

A particular highlight of the line is the Chronographe Squelette watch, distinguished by its skeleton dial, which shows off fascinating details of the movement.

Advanced from a technological standpoint, the Maurice Lacroix watch demonstrates a structure, represented by a metallic sculpture, which breathes life into the entire mechanism. This marvelous timekeeper has been produced in limited series of 250 items.

The Chronographe Squelette watch relies on a manually-wound, in-house manufactured movement - ML106-7 calibre. It is activated with help of a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. Equipped with hand-embellished bridges and snailed gear-trains, the movement features a balance wheel, swinging at the rate of 18,000 vibrations per hour. Set with 22 rubies, the movement offers a 42-hour power reserve. The Maurice Lacroix watch offers the functions of hours, minutes, seconds, as well as that of the chronograph to 1/5 second.

All the technical treasures of the watch are incorporated into a 45 mm case, rendered in a successful combination of polished and satin-finished steel. It is assembled with a curved sapphire crystal, which exposes a double-sided anti-reflective coating.

The case embraces an intriguing dial, which is completed with small seconds and 60-minute sub-dials, located at 9 oclock and at 3 oclock respectively. The rims of the minute and seconds counters reveal applications of white Superluminova compound.

The Maurice Lacroix Chronographe Squelette watch is mounted on a hand-stitched large-scaled crocodile leather strap with black calfskin lining and matching topstitching. The strap is finished with a folding clasp. The water-resistance of the timepiece is down to 100 meters.
