REF . MP7218 Available in a limited edition series of 50, the Masterpiece Calendrier Retrograde and Masterpiece Double Retrograde are produced in pink gold. The large 46 mm diameter cases, statuesque in appearance, afford time a space in keeping with its dimensions. The case, which is water-resistant to a depth of 50 m, has a very contemporary style polished and satin finish, with nothing superfluous and no decorative flourishes. Its plain simplicity is echoed in the blue dials that display the time data in a methodical and practical fashion, whatever the model.
One model features a retrograde date at 10 o'clock, the other a GMT double retrograde and date at 12 and 6 o'clock. The delicately cut out displays, stylish despite their technical sophistication, are enhanced by the sun-brushed satin finish of the dial, the deep blue colour of which confirms their credentials. The power reserve display, located at 2 or 3 o'clock depending on the model, is characterized by its bold, dynamic appearance. The pink-gold applied markers sit in a curve that stretches out gradually, giving a real impression of movement. As for the small seconds hand, it circles regularly without stopping.
In a clear, striking contrast, the fine pink-gold hands skim round the blue dial, their diamond-cut finish further enhanced by their gently curved shape. The absence of an arbor hole confirms traditional design where attention to the minutest detail is taken to its extreme. The purity, the quiet poise of the design that emanates from these timepieces cannot fail to evoke the most beautiful architectural creations where design, distilled to its purest essence, transfigures form and function. Perfect visual harmony and crystal-clear legibility testify explicitly to this. The finish, even of the tiniest component, invisible after the watch is assembled, can be seen through the sapphire crystal case backs. Their 16½ line diameter makes them among the largest automatic calibers in the market. In response to the expectations of a demanding public for whom performance is a way of life, the new automatic Masterpiece watches are also available in steel in a more popular case size of 43 mm, with two dial finishes, black and silver-plated.
REF. 6027 The name Pontos has always been a byword for style, attracting individuals who appreciate design and flair. Over the last 20 years, Pontos has subtly evolved, continuously improved and become, unquestionably, an emblematic model for Maurice Lacroix.
A key aspect of the Pontos collection is the design characteristics shared with each model, including since 2016 an enhanced case design delivering improved aesthetics, feel and wearer comfort. The curving lugs feature a stepped profile adding to the allure of the case. The crown protectors fuse with the caseband more harmoniously, extending outwards to the sunbrushed sides of the lugs.
Wherever inquisitive fingers roam, they are greeted with superior tactility. The finish of each element has been upgraded in 2016, conferring a sumptuous feel to each Pontos model. There is an increased interplay of polished and brushed surfaces, heightening the sense of luxury. The double folding clasp with push buttons was a further enhancement, according a superior fit and proffering greater wearer comfort.
