Distinguished by unostentatious elegance, the company’s latest brainchild accommodates a manufactory-made self-winding caliber 37, which uses ETA 2824-2 as its base.
It is equipped with an additional module that serves to display a date, a day of the week, a current month as well as the moon-phase. The caliber 37 runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 38-hour power reserve.
The entire mechanism is enclosed in a round-shaped case, which measures 40 mm in diameter. Composed of several well-polished and brushed parts, the case of the new Maurice Lacroix watch is crafted from stainless steel or 18K gold and stainless steel combination.
The last-mentioned version features a lunette, rendered in 18K gold. Both front and back sides of the case are fitted with sapphire crystals. The model is capable of withstanding water pressures down to 30 meters.
The new Classique Phases de Lune watch sports an angular bezel, sculptured in stainless steel or yellow gold. It forms a graceful frame around a silver or black dial. The display comprises luminous hour-markers and centrally mounted hands, which display hours, minutes and seconds.
The date information can be read off the fourth hand, pointing to the Arabic numerals and dot markers, artfully arrayed around the dial. The day and month apertures are positioned just beneath 12 o’clock. The moon-phase exhibition window at 6 o’clock ensures the overall equilibrium of the timekeeper.
The new Maurice Lacroix watch comes fitted with a brown leather strap.
