LES CLASSIQUES CHRONOGRAPHE PHASES DE LUNE

Inside the LES CLASSIQUES CHRONOGRAPHE PHASES DE LUNE

We all share an emotional connection with the moon. The wise satellite orbits the earth, waxing and waning and influencing life here on our planet. It affects ocean tides and looks down on us as we sleep at night. For some, the status of the moon influences their decisions and the moon-phase indication proves particularly useful during daylight hours when the moon is difficult to observe. Maurice Lacroix is a company that has become known for the Phases de Lune complication. Two new models join the range, featuring an array of functions including a chronograph. Time is a valuable resource. It should be cherished. In a hectic world, it is sometimes necessary to ration time between different areas of our lives. Les Classiques Chronographe Phases de Lune provides an array of functions, delivered in a concise and clear form. It is the ultimate tool to allocate time to optimum effect. The dial is a masterful exemplar of legibility with each element proving digestible and simple to interpret.

 

An impressive inventory of functions are presented on the dial. Hours and minutes are indicated by central hands. Small seconds are presented at 9 o’clock in combination with a 24-hour indicator. The chronograph includes a central seconds hand, 30-minute chronograph counter and a 12-hour chronograph counter. A central hand interfaces with the applicable date displayed around the perimeter of the dial. Two apertures, located below noon, show the day and the month. Arguably the most captivating function is the moon-phase indication. It is presented via a crescent-shaped aperture within the 12-hour chronograph counter. The blue nocturnal sky draws the eyes into a world of dreams and seduces with its charming depiction of a silvery moon.
