I've wanted to add a skeleton to my collection for some time, and I was interested in this one since it was announced at Basel. I know Maurice Lacroix isn't talked about much here on WUS, but from what I've read it looks like they're definitely on their way up. They offer unique designs, and they're moving most of their lineup to in-house movements.
The Masterpiece Squelette uses the ML 134.
The attention to detail is very nice, and I love watching the movement.
