Masterpiece Roue Carrée Seconde Or Rose

In 2010, Maurice Lacroix revolutionised the mechanics of time with the invention of a square gear wheel, the first in watchmaking history. The now famous Masterpiece was greeted with acclaim. Today, the line continues with a model of the utmost refinement. Crafted in pink gold, this new arrival rests on a dark brown, almost black movement plate. This contrast further accentuates the hypnotic effect of its angular rotation, together with the geometric interlacing of straight lines and curves. Small seconds come to life before the eyes as the openwork square wheel rhythmically follows its course. Dedicated to excellence, this new timepiece embodies the spirit of a collection that brings together engineering and aesthetics to train the spotlight on an exclusive mechanical display. 88-piece limited series.
