Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Tradition 5 Aiguilles

Following the style of the Masterpiece Tradition, the hours, minutes and seconds are indicated by classic hands complemented by a calendar display. However, this model has one different feature: the day and date are not shown digitally in a window set into the dial but by an analog display involving two central hands with a distinctive design. This unusual feature has given the watch its name: the Masterpiece Tradition 5 Hands.

Great care has been taken with the decoration of the automatic movement. Traditional circular graining together with Côtes de Genève give it a sparkling brilliance that will delight all watch lovers. The classic Côtes de Genève on the gold-plated oscillating weight can be seen shimmering through the sapphire case back. The model is available with several different dials and external parts, sometimes in a limited edition.
