This is retrograde indication. All of a sudden, when it reaches the end of its travel on Sunday, the hand springs back to resume its docile cycle. The week extends along an arc of a circle, regular and changeless. As complications go, it is a must; a great Maurice Lacroix tradition that has been followed for nearly 30 years.
The smallest element of decoration or the least indication has its raison d’être in this stainless steel case, 40 mm in diameter. Sobriety of appearance is a self-evident essential feature of this timepiece, water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters.
Only the bezel is permitted a more conspicuous, dynamic profile, showing that these watches reconcile temperament and evident simplicity.
The hours and minutes succeed each other peacefully, with no extraneous influence to disturb the view of their passage. The new timepieces endow their mechanical hearts with a face that is formally conventional, yet seems ageless. Their mellow finishes disclose an intense, profound sobriety; their presentation, reduced to its clearest expression, stresses functionalism and legibility and avoids aesthetic overstatement.
The Les Classiques Jours Rétrogrades Automatique watch houses the caliber ML 102, with its unique large date indication and retrograde days that rank it among the great. To make legibility perfect, the hours and minutes hands and the appliques markers are highlighted with Superluminova.
Sobriety is the order of the day. The maurice lacroix replica watches is located in a double window at 12 o’clock, while the seconds tick away rhythmically at 6 o’clock, endowing the dial, black or silvered, with a beautiful visual balance. The design of the watch sets off the values of the time data in classical and contemporary spirit.
These watchmaking complications have constituted the spearhead of the brand since the 1980s. This aesthetic moderation is equalled only by the complexity of their mechanisms. Apart from function, it is the undisputed mastery and authenticity of Maurice Lacroix that distill their authority into the machinery of these timepieces.
