Maurice Lacroix, which has always insisted on playing classic designs, has performed well in the field of homemade movements and styles. Its Les Classiques elegant series uses creativity and combines classics. Elements to create a young, Le Méridien classic.
Les Classiques Moon Phase Chronograph
When some long-established brands want to create ‘classic’ watches, they can easily extract elements from the antique styles published in the past, and young brands must think hard. Le Méridien’s approach is very clever. It simply integrates the appearance of the pocket watch into the Les Classiques elegant series, using the special curvature of the round case and round bezel to create a strong nostalgia. In the eyes of modern people, this nostalgic element is a natural classic elegance. After adjusting the shape of the case, the configuration of the faceplate meets the classic theme, taking a simple route, and integrating the brand spirit and classics just right.
In fact, the word ‘simple’ is particularly popular in the watch circle, but it is not easy to really implement it. Les Classiques elegant series of moon phase chronographs have a number of complex features, including chronographs, monthly calendars, moon phases and 24-hour display, such as 7, 8 time display, how to match the display really test the watch factory’s unique aesthetics of simplicity. Amy’s method is to use the 30-minute and 12-hour accumulated time dials to match the day / month and moon phases. The small dial at 9 o’clock shows the 24-hour time, and the date dial is arranged on the outermost circle of the faceplate, eliminating the need for small display dials. The problem of space makes the whole face look sharper. In addition, the slim stick-shaped hour markers and hands also play a visual ‘purification’ effect.
Les Classiques elegant series moon phase chronograph with ML 154 automatic winding movement, the balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, power reserve of 48 hours, the movement is decorated with circular patterns, snails and Geneva ripple, and rhodium-plated First, to strengthen protection, and second, light gray, low color tone, it also seems more texture.
Les Classiques Elegant Power Reserve Watch
Amy’s moon phase watch often makes people feel amazing. This is not unexpected. It has aesthetic cognition and courage to break through. Naturally, the moon phases that are not sufficiently sharp in the configuration can be lifted into the visual focus. Les Classiques elegant series power reserve watch gives the same feeling, the original power reserve display can also play like this.
Whether the power reserve display of a general watch is at 3, 4 or 9 o’clock, the design of the display panel is usually lower-key than the moon phase. The reason is simple. The power reserve display focuses on practicability. Furthermore, there are not many forms that can be changed with a pointer and a pointer. The Les Classiques elegant series power reserve watch moves the kinetic energy display to 12 o’clock, and the arc of the display window is enlarged to 120 degrees, so the entire power reserve display is very eye-catching. The independent seconds dial at 6 o’clock provides a visually balanced effect, with gold-colored hour markers and hands, and a silver-white dial, which naturally reveals a strong sense of fashion. In addition to styling and creative face plate configuration, polishing is also the focus of judging the value of watches, and Le Méridien does not neglect these details. Take the slender rod-shaped time scale, the smallest right-angled cross-sectional area is less than 0.01 square millimeters, but if you look carefully through a magnifying glass, you will find that the texture is as fine as polishing, which shows that Amy has a critical and strict quality requirement.
