    Any love for Maurice Lacriox watches here?

    So I picked up this Maurice Lacriox Double Retrograde for an amazing price recently because I thought it looked great and has very some impressive features. You don't see much mentioned about this brand here and I find it strange given the superb quality of this piece. Anyone else into this brand at all? Can't be just me surely

    Very nice piece. I had almost bought one myself in the past. I think you just have to get into the watch at the right price. Most importantly though in a firm believer in buying a watch that suits you and your personality. But what you like irrespective of the brand name.
    Congrats and wear it in good health.

    Nice brand that flies under the radar for most, IMHO.

    This is one of my favorites. Unfortunately I couldn't find a lighting condition without glare that highlights the blued numerals, second hand and day indicator.

    They make nice watches. They are not a forum favorite but they are quality indeed.

    Interesting watch but I think as a lot of others note the brand does not seem to attract the passionate advocates that others seem to. Not sure why

    Think they get a bad rap because they are (or used to be) one of those brands that were widely sold on the grey market for like 70%+ off of 'retail'... also seemed like they had two distinct tiers of watches, regular, and some 'masterpiece' collection. Kind of like they couldn't figure out what they wanted the brand to be. I know they came out with a sports model that looks a lot like a RO a couple of years back, but haven't heard/seen much else from them recently as the brand is virtually never discussed on the forums/youtube/etc.



    Current line-up: Cartier Santos / Zenith El Primero 1969 / Rolex Explorer 214270 / Grand Seiko SBGJ027 'Peacock' / Oris Aquis

    I certainly like this brand too, especially their older design. I bought an automatic for my wife a few years ago. It looks very classy (with onion crown) and works great. I’m not a big fan of their more recent models however.
