The Masterpiece Collection is the perfect synthesis of Maurice Lacroix Ladies Watches Australia Replica know-how. This collection spearheads the brand, and, its interpretation is a wonderful illustration of complications, especially retrograde displays, that Maurice Lacroix has been specializing in since 1999. In 2003, Maurice Lacroix unveiled its first double retrograde model. Ever since, this genre of timepiece has played a key role in the history of the progressive brand.
This year, Maurice Lacroix Watch 59858 Replica returns to its roots, unveiling two types of retrograde watches: the Masterpiece Double Retrograde and the Masterpiece Moon Retrograde. Each model embodies watchmaking craftsmanship and is delivered in either a classical or a modern design style.
The opinion is 44mm wide and 11mm thick, and I’m glad they opted for the comparatively wide case size because it actually does convey the manly character Maurice LaCroix is trying to get around here greater than a more compact case would. I believe the conventional three-hand Aikon watches are smaller in 42mm wide along with the chronograph shares this 44mm wide case.Now, the fact that this view uses a quartz movement speaks to the type of buyer that is likely to gravitate to the piece. For them, here is a watch which is going to have the identical charm of the bronze shifting throughout time at a price of 1,350 CHF. The finishing, dialup, and overall quality of this piece are well done especially when you think about the price point. Again, this will come at a cost when you believe there is a quartz movement. However, the slimness and convenience afforded by a quartz movement ought to be acknowledged as well.The case is obviously made from bronze, along with the brown dial is mild in the middle and grows darker outward. It is a nice effect which draws the eye on the item and actually keeps it from looking drab due to the brown and bronze combination. The hands, indices, and (thankfully) Arabic numerals are climbed gold plated with white Super-LumiNova. To bring the look together is your “classic” brown calf leather strap with a bronze Maurice LaCroix emblem the manufacturer has made its signature.I believe Maurice LaCroix has made a piece that packs a whole lot of style, personality, and a contemporary classic aesthetic in this bronze watch and it’s likely to have no difficulty finding 388 buyers who are interested in it. Yes, it is after having a pretty saturated market trend but in equity the Aikon Bronze stands out from the many dive watches which were done in bronze.
It’s not often you see such a print on watches, but I will understand Maurice LaCroix’s eagerness to remind wearers that their movement is a tiny special.The blue dial variation is fine also, and undoubtedly more showy due to the bright blue dial. The layout of this dial is comparable, but the finishing differs. The main dial, by way of instance, has Côtes de Genève completing. And while the indicators on the silver dial have Clous de Paris decoration, the blue dial variation has guilloché made out of concentric circles. The minute and hour hands, in addition to the hands for the signs and respective indices, are rhodium-plated. Overall legibility is just as good as the silver dial version.The black dial variation (which we didn’t get to take hands, unfortunately) is more like the blue dial variation instead of the silver one. Like the silver dial version, the black dial version has vertical cleaning on the main dial. The indicators have guilloché made out of concentric circles. The hands and indices are all rhodium-plated as well. The black dial version is easily the dressiest and most serious of this trio.The Masterpiece Moon Retrograde is powered by the on site ML192, a variant of the ML191 that drives the Masterpiece Double Retrograde. The decoration and finishing of this ML192 movement are similar to the ML191 also, with Côtes de Genève and diamond-cut borders on the bridges. Similarly, the large rotor is rhodium-plated, slightly skeletonized, and attributes Côtes de Genève decoration as well.When we first wrote about these new watches earlier this season, there were a couple of remarks that criticized the lookout due to its styling. The overall grade of the case and the dial is actually nice and top-rate, I doubt anybody would feel shortchanged.
The Masterpiece Double Retrograde
The 43mm stainless steel case provides ample size to display all indications clearly. The dial features hours, minutes and a small seconds display at 9 o’clock, with a power reserve indicator adjacent the crown. Below noon, a retrograde hand displays the hour in a second time zone, while above 6 o’clock the date is imparted with a retrograde hand. Despite displaying several indications, the dial remains simple to interpret.
Prospective purchasers can choose from a silver or black dial, adorned with either a rhodium or a blue ‘M’ logo and matching hour markers, depending on the dial color chosen. The watch is supplied on a black crocodile leather strap. The purity, the quiet poise of the design that emanates from these timepieces cannot fail to evoke the most beautiful and unique architectural creations where design, distilled to its purest essence, transfigures form and function. The various indications of the Double Retrograde are powered by the automatic manufacture movement, the ML191, which can be admired via the exhibition case-back.
The Masterpiece Moon Retrograde
The moon has a huge significance on our lives. It influences the tides and is a symbol of love and wisdom. Maurice Lacroix Dress Watch Replica has always been synonymous with timepieces equipped with a moonphase and, therefore, it seems only fitting that it should combine this indication with another area of its expertise, namely, the retrograde. The combination of the two complications confers an undeniable uniqueness to this timepiece.
Delivered in a 43mm stainless steel case, the dial options include silver, black or blue. The silver hued dial evinces a classical character. Alternatively, modernity is conferred with the black and blue dial options which stylishly feature a Côtes de Genève motif or a vertically brushed effect. The ‘M’ logo and indexes encircling the dial are presented in either rhodium or blue, depending on the dial option selected. The hands are diamond-cut and colored to suit the choice of dial.
The automatic manufacture movement ML192, containing 344 movement components, powers an array of indications, including hours and minutes and a date at 10 o’clock with a retrograde hand. Additionally, the day is shown along with a moonphase indication at 6 o’clock. Finally, a power reserve indication resides at 2 o’clock. The watch is supplied with a black crocodile leather strap, paired with a deployment buckle. The case features an exhibition case-back, according sight of the manufacture movement within.
