Like the Masterpiece Double Retrograde watch, there is a print that states “Manufacture Movement” at 6 o’clock. It’s not often you see such a print on watches, however I can know Maurice LaCroix’s eagerness to remind wearers that their movement is a little special.The blue dial variation is nice too, and definitely more showy due to the bright blue dial. The layout of the dial is similar, but the finishing differs. The main dial, for example, includes Côtes de Genève completing. The minute and hour hands, as well as the palms for the indicators and respective indices, are rhodium-plated. Overall legibility is simply as fantastic as the silver dial version.The black dial variation (that we didn’t get to shoot hands-on(sadly) is more similar to the blue dial version instead of the silver one. Much like the silver dial version, the black dial model has vertical brushing on the main dial. The signs all have guilloché made from concentric circles. The hands and indices are all rhodium-plated also. The black dial version is easily the dressiest and most severe of this trio.The Masterpiece Moon Retrograde is powered with the in-house ML192, a variant of the ML191 that drives the Masterpiece Double Retrograde. Such as the ML191, the ML192 is a self-winding motion that beats at a leisurely 2.5Hz and has a power reserve of 52 hours. The finishing and decoration of this ML192 movement are similar to the ML191 too, with Côtes de Genève and diamond-cut borders on the bridges. In the same way, the large rotor is rhodium-plated, marginally skeletonized, also features Côtes de Genève decoration as well.When we first wrote about these brand new watches earlier this year, there were a couple of remarks that criticized the watch for its own styling.
