Maurice Lacroix – Les Classiques Quartz Chronographe

The new Les Classiques Chronographe Quartz is a modern yet classic chronograph timepiece powered with a reliable quartz movement. The 40mm stainless steel case will suit a broad range of individuals courtesy of its reserved proportions, while its highly polished surface embraces light and gleams alluringly.

Two new models are available: A silver dial model with a pink gold plated bezel and a more contemporary model featuring fully stainless steel bezel with silver dial.

Silver dials feature sun-ray brushing at their centre with circular snail finishing to their hour track. The subdials are snailed at the centre and feature circular brushing to their perimeter. Balance is created with the arrangement of the three subdials.

They include a small seconds at 2 o’clock, a 1/10th second chronograph counter at 6 o’clock and 30-minute chronograph at 10 o’clock. Imagine an axis running from 6 o’clock to noon, symmetry can be seen in the location of the dial elements, everything is optimally located.

The Hours and Minutes hands are diamond cut and are pink gold plated or black gold, depending on the model selected. Nocturnal legibility is conferred, courtesy of luminescent coating on the hands.

Applied diamond cut indexes denote the hours with their luminous forms glowing blue in reduced light. A fourth central hand points to the date indicated around the perimeter of the dial. The day and month are presented via two rectangular apertures at noon.
