Don't let the name Maurice Lacroix fool you - he was not a famous watchmaker, this man held a high position in the Desco company, which has long been engaged in the production of silk products. What can connect such a company and watches? History. And she, as you know, does not accept unreasonable haste. So first things first.
Desco has been making silk products since 1889. Since 1946, the company began cooperation with some watch houses. From year to year, silk connoisseurs fell more and more in love with the beauty of men's and women's watches. In 1961, Desco acquired its first watch factory in Switzerland, where it created individual parts for old acquaintances from the watch world. And after a few years, it was time to create your own watch.
No sooner said than done, the new company was named after one of Desco's employees, the same Maurice Lacroix. The company's business went so well that in 1980, cooperation with other watch houses was terminated. The 90s were a time of unprecedented growth and multiplied the success of the Swiss company Maurice Lacroix.
In this review, we will focus on a model from the popular Eliros collection.
Eliros Date is an elegant quartz watch. Their strict appearance will please all those who are tired of seeing colorful colors and large sizes around them. Eliros Date is a watch that will definitely appeal to calm, reserved people - a stylish steel case played a big role in this. The design of the case is made with the attention to detail inherent in the brand: the watch is pleasant to hold in your hands, and even more pleasant to put it on your wrist as soon as possible.
A very compact size also contributes to positive sensations from men's Swiss watches - the case is only 38 mm in diameter, and this is with a thickness of some 7 mm! They can rightly be attributed to the category "Slim".
The execution of the dial corresponds to the vision of Maurice Lacroix - maximum benefit. Therefore, elegant black Roman numerals are well combined (and readable) with a silver dial, and a date window at 3 o'clock will always remind the owner of what day it is. All this splendor is reliably protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and is held on the wrist by a soft leather strap.
But this model is good not only with an attractive appearance - the technical “stuffing” here is also appropriate. It is based on a precise and reliable Swiss quartz movement. The watch is ideal for a strict business suit, but for traveling to the bottom of the seas, you can find something else for yourself - this model is water resistant up to 50 meters.
The Maurice Lacroix Eliros Date watch will definitely outstrip many of its classmates. Elegant watches at a low price for such a brand attract the attention of the buyer with their features, while wanting to remain strict and restrained, like their future owners. The main distinguishing feature of the watches from the Eliros line is their truly "mechanical" look, they really look like a luxurious mechanical watch, but at the same time they are quartz. Understanding people will appreciate!
By the way, a similar model is presented in the female version. The main difference lies only in the size of the case: the diameter is 30 mm, the thickness is only 6 mm.
