    Maurice Lacroix: what watches are powered by in house movements?

    I am interested in some of the watches in the current Maurice Lacroix lineup, but I don't know exactly what models are powered by an in house movement. The masterpiece collection obviously uses in house movements, but I'm questioning some of the watches from the Pontos collection.

    How about the Pontos Grand Guichet GMT? Or the Petite Seconde?
    Judging by the price of these pieces I would say that these watches are powered by ETA movements, but I might wrong.

    Does anyone have a list of some sort of what movements they use?

    Last I heard the only one in their line up that was an in-house movement was the Memoire 1. I could be wrong though as I have not been checking out their stuff that much recently.

    Pontos Grand Guichet GMT = TT 651 = base 2892-2

    Pontos Petite Seconde = ML 108 = obvious an Unitas



    Masterpiece Rectangulaire Petite Seconde = ML 126, manufactured by La Joux-Perret

    List in German here: http://www.watchtime.net/watches/?si...tab1&brand=236
    (look for Kaliber = caliber, Basiskaliber = base cal.)

    ML modifies ETA or other movements to add more complications.

    I think Maurice Lacroix do his movements himself. You will be abble to find a lot of informations about the movement and the brand on the ML website http://www.mauricelacroix.com
    I own a Pontos Chronograph and it's a very reliable watch :))
    Really like this brand that to much people don't know

    There is no 'Maurice Lacroix' - it's a made up name. There's a joke that their janitor has that name.


    ML uses many Peseux movements in their Masterpiece series and a few Unitas as pointed out above. The only in-house movement they make that I'm aware of is the ML-106 chronograph.

    Of course there is no Maurice Lacroix. I know that it's a made up name.
    I was talking about the manufacture.

    Not correct. Most are from ETA.
