Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Date Ladies Edition 2011

For 2011, Swiss watch brand Maurice Lacroix presents a new collection for ladies from its enigmatic Les Classiques line. Les Classiques Date Ladies is smaller in size, yet elegant. With a few exquisitely attractive touches and natural curves, these women’s dress watches are unruffled by the vagaries of time.

The craftsmanship is timeless in terms of shape, layout and nature. Its dazzling purity is unclouded by any decorative flourishes. The face is in gleaming black, brilliant silver-plate or iridescent white mother-of-pearl, while the stainless steel case features a gold-plate or diamond-set bezel that emphasises its neat 28 mm diameter. Meanwhile, eager to assume their true mantle, the hours hand turns under the watchful eye of the date aperture at 6 o’clock.

Fun-loving, the Les Classiques Date Ladies watch features a variety of case finishes, dials and straps, while, at its heart, a quartz movement ticks away regularly. It attests to the talent of the Maurice Lacroix designers who have managed to reinterpret a collection while at the same time remaining true to its intrinsic character. Its extremely competitive market positioning meets the demands of a clientele that prefers elegant simplicity to ostentatious sophistication.
