Maurice Lacroix Eliros Chronographe Quartz

The clean, uncluttered lines of the Eliros Chronographe confer a timeless elegance. Each model is presented in a stainless steel case, incorporating a high-quality Swiss quartz movement. Nevertheless, despite being equipped with an impressive specification, the Eliros Chronographe remains accessibly priced, proving an affordable entry to Swiss luxury watch ownership.
The hour and minutes are clearly conveyed using diamond-cut hands that exhibit crispness to their form, aiding legibility. Three subdials occupy the central area of the dial, including a 1/10th second counter, a 30 minute counter and a small seconds display. Below noon, a large date display is presented, according a notable balance to the dial layout. Elongated indexes and Roman numerals stylishly mark the hours. The subtle lines encircling the perimeter of the dial, adjacent the minute track, accentuate the detail depicted, aiding ease of understanding. The sapphire crystal of the Eliros Chronographe is treated with anti-reflective coating to ensure superb legibility, a quality which is evident with one glance of its clean dial.
The slender case of the Eliros Chronographe has a diameter of 40mm. Its sleek profile does not restrict free movement of the wrist and unobtrusively graces the arm, granting exceptional levels of wearer comfort.
The highly polished chronograph push pieces neatly interface with the case band, proving simple to operate without unduly protruding. The latest Eliros Chronographe dials have been enhanced with subtle changes, granting a high degree of sophistication and a slightly “retro” touch. Prospective purchasers have a choice of six dial options to choose from, each with its own optimally matched colour way. Sun-brushed dials, in a selection of colours, feature fine lines which charmingly interface with light, while a white lacquered dial option delivers a pure aesthetic.
A stainless steel Milanese bracelet is available for the Eliros Chronographe. Alternatively, each dial variant is available with a colour coordinating calfskin strap. Typical of a brand with a “passion for progress”, the strap has recently been improved. Gracing the strap, the brand’s stylish “M” logo features once again, but it is now integrated into the leather adding a greater sense of cohesion.
