Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Tradition Reserve de Marche

As its name suggests, this model possesses a practical power-reserve display as part of a classic, elegant design in the style of the Masterpiece Tradition collection: simple yet highly appealing.Ideally located at 7 o’clock, a small hand indicates the energy remaining in the automatic movement, the caliber ML 113, that is meticulously decorated by hand.

While an automatic movement with a power-reserve indicator may seem like a contradiction, this combination proves to be a wise choice for daily use. If this jewel of watchmaking remains immobile for a certain length of time, the owner can instantly see how much longer it will run and wind it at a given moment to ensure that it continues to indicate the time. The watch also displays the date at 3 o’clock and the hours, minutes and seconds with central hands.

The sapphire case back gives a clear view of the rhodium-plated movement with its circular graining and Côtes de Genève decoration, as well as the gold-plated oscillating weight also engraved with Côtes de Genève. This model with its noble simplicity is available in four versions that will appeal to all who know that an exceptional design has no need for embellishments.
