THE IN-HOUSE MOVEMENTS

For more than 30 years, the precious mechanical timepieces of Maurice Lacroix have been produced with utmost precision and perfection by experienced watchmakers in own watchmaking facilities. Where the fine finishing work and the assembly of sometimes microscopically small movement parts are concerned, the experienced hand of the watchmaker and profound knowledge passed down from one watchmaker generation to the next are still very much in demand.

ML 106-2 Masterpiece Le Chronographe

 

The first of their kind in chronograph technology.

The ML 106 movements take that rarest of mechanical watchmaking achievements – the 60 minute counter – and add to it two unique patents. Now with an innovative new release lever and a totally redesigned cinematic chain wheel, these movements have improved on a chronograph design unchanged in the industry since the 1800s. More precision, more reliability, no more than you’d expect from Maurice Lacroix.

ML 134 Masterpiece Squelette

 

We consider watchmaking an art. And the ML 134 exposes the inner beauty of our craft like no other movement. All bridges feature a seamless black-gold coating punctuated only by jet black screws, stunning red jewels and gold-plated wheels. True beauty really is on the inside.

ML 150 Masterpiece Calendrier Rétrograde

 

As if precision, hand-crafted time measurement wasn’t complex enough, the ML 150 movement interweaves it with a power indication and retrograde (semicircular) date display. It is this spirit of constant improvement that epitomises the Masterpiece range. And the reason why the ML 150 also features black gold coated bridges and no less than 35 jewelled bearings.

ML 151 masterpiece double retrograde

 

The ML 151 is a movement with hidden depths. Outside, it shows to the world a face of pure calm. Yet inside is an intricate labyrinth of features. A retrograde date display, a power level indication, a retrograde second time-zone display, plus components so fine they are only 4/100ths of a millimetre thick. It is the perfect reminder that, in life, still waters often run deep.

A day is one revolution of the Earth. The time it takes, is what the average watch is built to measure. The ML 152, however, is no average movement. Balanced with retrograde (semi-circular) date and power reserve displays, it also measures time by the movement of the moon – charting the lunar cycle on a celestial display. A humbling reminder that time does not just revolve around us.

ML 190 Masterpiece Calendrier Retrograde

Busy people don't stop, and neither should their watches. That's why we took the ML 150 and created the ML 190 movement. One of our first automatic manufacture calibres, it offers all the precision features of the Masterpiece Calendrier Retrograde but with one small difference - you'll never have to wind it again.

ML 191 Masterpiece Double Retrograde

 

Exclusively developed in our own workshop, the ML 191 movement takes the precision craftsmanship of the ML 151 and adds to it a self-winding mechanism. Along with the ML 190, this is not only our fi rst automatic manufacture calibre but also the largest of its kind in the world.

The self-winding ML 192 movement, manufactured entirely in-house, bears the stamp of the highest Swiss watchmaking traditions. Its workings, down to the smallest component, are revealed by the sapphire crystal case, while its brushed vertical and Grand Colimaçon finishes reflect the light down to the jewels themselves.

ML 215 Masterpiece Seconde Mysterieuse

Skeletonized, apparent movement, the Masterpiece Seconde Mystérieuse fits perfectly in line with the multiple award winning, know-how design of Maurice Lacroix. The hours appear at 2 o'clock, pointed by varnished blued hands, whilst the rest of the dial is open work on bridges of movement, with a geometric, contemporary style.

ML 230 Masterpiece Gravity

Maurice Lacroix is, understandably, very proud to feature a complete assortment produced in silicon. The Calibre ML230 is its 13th manufacture movement, reaffirming the company’s know-how and technical progress. The brand has minimised the number of components to 188, avoiding unnecessary parts and, by default, providing a clean appearance and enhanced reliability.
