In the 1990s, the Maurice Lacroix Calypso was a huge success for the Swiss watch brand. Indeed, at the time, it was the company’s best selling model. Regrettably with successive updates its allure diminished leading to its eventual demise.

When David Sanchez arrived at Maurice Lacroix and assumed the role of Product Director, he discovered images of the original Calypso. He could clearly see elements of the design deserving of praise. Eager to recapture the allure of the Calypso and, no doubt its commercial success, he began sketching ideas for its modern-day successor, mindful that his new design should be relevant to today’s audience.

ML's higher end stuff remains almost criminally underrated, and the quality of most of their line has always been a pleasant surprise. As for this watch ... I think I'd have to see one in real time to make an opinion - but I'll tell ya, when MLs were displayed at Kenjo, I thought many of them were really hot stuff.

I'd like to give that one the Filthy Sanchez!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Another amalgamation of features from Genta and Genta-esque designs. Lemme think...ummm...yeah...well...boring. Boring, boring, boring.
