Description

The joy of driving an open roof car on a winding country lane is something many men dream of. To sense the wind in your hair and feel the sun on your face, on a bright summer’s day, bestows a sense of well-being. It is the removal of the roof that provides access to the elements and confers a sense of connection with many objects ordinarily hidden from view. The same scenario could equally apply to this latest contemporary timepiece from Maurice Lacroix. The Masterpiece Le Chronographe Squelette reveals its inner workings centre-stage. This exceptional timepiece is skeletonised, presenting many challenges in its construction. Removing material can adversely affect torsional rigidity. This presents similar challenges to car companies when creating an open roof roadster. However, Maurice Lacroix have shown on several occasions they have an impressive competence at creating skeletonised movements and this model is no exception. Its complex construction ensures there is no flexing of the base plate and solidity is assured.
