Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Review

Maurice Lacroix Les Classiques Review

Postby artman » February 13th 2018, 11:42pm

When my wife bought an ML a couple years ago, I knew nothing of the brand. Heck I still cannot pronounce the name of the brand correctly, but I sure was smitten. Fast forward to last night my wife and I went on one of our monthly watch strolls and we ran across this 18k gold beauty sitting in the discount counter calling to us. My wife saw it first and actually tried it on first and it didn't take much to convince us to take it home.

Image
The specs say it's 40mm, but it wears a lot like 38mm. Still, the size is just right.

Image
It's rather thin and the finish is amazing.

Image
The movement is absolutely beautiful.

Image
The buckle is shaped like the ML logo and is also 18k. I think this is my first photo of buckle.

Image
The gray, sunburst dial is very cool and I love the spear tip indices. Anyway, thanks for watching. It's my wife's turn to wear it now. Cheers!

As a ML owner to another, congrats on the watch. Great watches, great values and a watch that is under the radar to most in the WIS community. Nice review.
