Maurice lacroix is a relative new company considering they started in 1990, yet they managed to be on top of the league in no time. Their watch designs and quality have been recognized in the industry with unique timepieces such as the Memoire 1 concept watch introduced in 2008. However we are not here today to talk about the Memoire 1 but to talk about the Masterpiece Phase de Lune, which is a classy watch with incredible personality. The watch is fitted on a 40 mm case and a beautiful guilloche dial. The face is divided in inner circles, three to be more precise. The outer circle displays the time with the roman numerals. The second inner circle on top of the time is to display the date which is well marked with the smallest hand of the watch. The last inner circle displays on top with two small windows the day of the week, and the month respectively, and on the bottom the moonphase. Easily seen with its see-thru back, inside the watch there is a marvelous movement Maurice Lacroix Caliber ML 37 (base ETA 2824-2) with 25 jewels. Not missing out on details the movement is decorated by hand. The watch comes in stainless steel, stainless steel and rose gold, and all rose gold. They retail for $7600, $9900 and $19500 respectively.
