    Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Squelette

    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.

    I'm a fan of skeletons, but that one doesn't do it for me.

    That's a nice looking skeleton! I like how they subtly handled the branding on the dial. Congrats on your new Maurice Lacroix!

    It's a great, modern looking skeleton and agree ML is going places recently, with some interesting, almost avant garde designs

    ML makes good watches, some of which have very innovative design characters.

    The one you posted certainly defines a "skeleton" watch......

    There are a few skeletons that I like. This one isn't.

    As usual skeletons, this one is VERY hard to read (at least from the pics).

    That said, if you like the look of it, ML certainly makes quite decent skeleton watches.

    Thanks guys. I'm really enjoying it.

    By nature a skeleton will be harder to read than a standard face, but I don't mind looking a 1/4 of a second longer. Admiring everything around the hands is more distracting to me then trying to find them. The pictures just don't do it justice. You have to see this one in person.

    I'm not the world's biggest fan of skelly watches and this one is a little too skeleton for my liking but it clearly appeals to you and that's all that matters.

    I like skeleton watches and ML definitely makes some very nice designs which don't look like any other company. I have last years model which is more gunmetal on the inside and it looks great in person. Congrats!
