Great deal. I have had success with jomashop on a variety of items purchased including a Speedy so you should have no problems.
A good price on an ML Masterpiece is pretty attractive.
ML was reported to be for sale 2 years ago, by various publications. That it has not been sold, is not a positive sign in my book.
And yes, I'd be more cautious about buying in-house from Breitling until I see where the new owners plan to take it. But with Breitling, you at least know the new owners, and you have their statements to analyze. Here with ML, we have no clue what their future is.

I'm ambivalent about power reserve dials. They don't bother me that much, but the overall design of the watch is kind of "meh." Roman numerals do nothing for me and the look is rather fuddie-duddieish.
Great deal for an attractive dress-style watch.
Apart from communicating you got a great deal, which is great for you, this thread reads like one giant add. So, I have reported it as such.
I've seen the watch for less. IIRC for €660. Prices of ML are going down since DKSH Holding AG put it up for sale. Bloomberg once titled "Maurice Lacroix watches are selling at discounts, which have reached as much as 66 percent off the list price". No suprise that Jomashop profits by ML sailing through troubled waters.
I've been a member for over a year, with 474 posts and I have 239 likes received for basically a 50% ratio.
In that time I've bought over a dozen watches and assorted other toys, but this is the first one that I've basically shouted "Bargain" (though I've mentioned others favorably) not because it's my favorite, or most expensive or best deal or my most exciting but because all the others were not repeatable... they were auctions or last one NOS or whatever.
So.... I finally run into a legitimate bargain (cheaper than even eBay sellers) that is repeatable (still on sale) and my third thought is I should "give back" to WUS and share this in a post! (first thought was buy it, second though was make sure it's not junk).
And your response is to "report" the post?
Funny thing, my life is full of examples of a quote I learned as a child "No good deed goes unpunished" and my wife and mother will laugh when I verify it's even true online!
All said and done, let me be clear, I'm not upset, offended or feeling vindictive... and I'll still probably post future deals I might find (even enthusiastically) and run the risk of getting ratted out to the fuzz, dangerous fellow that I am.
I'm just stunned and amused because it's just another real-life fulfillment of that quote above, and also a great example of how anyone can be offended by anything if that's the mood their in.
Explains so much of politics, protest and lack of discourse nowadays.
PS: Did I mention they'll throw in a set of steak knifes if you act before midnight?
