Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Skeleton Watch Review
Monday - 01 February 2016
Two words. Baselworld 2016. The mere mention of the Swiss event evokes excitement. My typing speed certainly increases as I hurriedly try to share the exclusive hints and rumours - whispers of the timepieces that will be revealed at the great unveiling of innovative watches. First on my Baselworld hitlist is from the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece collection - the Masterpiece Skeleton and Masterpiece Chronograph Skeleton to be exact.
The clue is in the title, Maurice Lacroix plan again to explore the world of the skeletonised dial - and believe us you will be very impressed with their interpretation. The Masterpiece Skeleton boasts a 43mm dial that welcomes the exposed hand wound ML134 manufacture movement, which is intricately decorated with spiral-pattern grand colimacon. A choice of black, gold or blue is on offer for the sandblasted mainplate, which are framed in a stainless steel case and secured to the wrist with a black alligator strap.
The Masterpiece Skeleton Chronograph is slightly larger in size with a 45mm diameter demanding much deserved attention. Three options are rumoured to be available with variants of steel casing with a silvered dial, black PVD steel casing with matching dial or steel casing with silvered dial and 4N solid gold bezel. The automatic chronograph movement is manufactured exclusively for Maurice Lacroix complete with Cotes de Geneve bridges and rotor. Positioned at 9 o’clock sits the brand logo showcasing the small seconds whereas the vivid red wheel at 3 o’clock indicates the 30 minute counter.
