The domed sapphire crystal, provided with anti-reflective coating on both sides, protects a high-tech, skeletonized dial.
The dial of the timepiece
reveals two perfectly symmetrical displays - the power reserve and retrograde date displays found at 2 o’clock and at 10 o’clock respectively. The skeletonized arcs of the displays add a kind of industrial look to the dial, with no extra decor used. Each hand, delicately applied to the dial, slides beneath one of the hollowed-out arcs. The hours and minutes are indicated by the hands in the center.
The moon phase function is presented via a precisely calibrated celestial disc at 6 o’clock. A tiny luminescent hand, resembling the hours and minutes hands, shows the day of the week on the edge of the moon-phase disc.
The slate-gray main plate features a vertical-brushed finish. The circular-brushed applied ring is completed with polished applied slate-gray Arabic numerals.
The 37-jewel movement, beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour, provides 42 hours of power reserve. The movement boasts exclusive decoration – its hand-decorated bridges are plated with black-gold and demonstrate large snail-like pattern and the moon phases disc.
The steel case of the Maurice Lacroix watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, demonstrates an eye-catching combination of polished sunray, circular- and vertical-brushed surfaces. It incorporates a screwed steel bezel, integrated shaped push-pieces, and a screw-down crown. The screwed case-back reveals a large sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The timepiece is 100-meter water resistant.
The Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Lune Retrograde ML152 watch is coupled with a black hand-stitched large-scale crocodile leather strap. The timepiece will be available in a limited number of 250 pieces.
