Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Squelette Tradition

The Masterpiece Squelette Tradition adds a subtle, classic touch to the design of the skeleton watch. Its design is the fruit of a subtle alliance of tradition and innovation. The tradition is seen in the decorative features. The innovation lies in the approach taken to the skeletonized openwork. The delicately worked movement is engraved in the spirit of the finest traditional creations of our great watchmaking heritage.

Disks and bridges are adorned with delicately-engraved scrolls, while the gear train revealed by the watch’s deep inner workings is seen to be extremely contemporary. The alliance of past and present presents a lively series of contrasts to showcase all the technical and artistic expertise of Maurice Lacroix.
