    I must admit, I like a few Maurice Lacroix offerings, though this is a perfect example of a brand with an ill-defined direction. Last I heard they were bought out by some Asian conglomerate.

    Their squelette from a few years back was beautiful, though too big for me

    Agreed. Here's my fave ML piece - can't believe I ever let it go - damn hard to find an enamel dial at anywhere near this price point:

    The 5712 is a lovely piece. And that picture of the 5712 really shows it off very, very well!

    I know how I felt about it - it's why I swapped straps. [​IMG]

    Very nice ML! The dial is very, very well proportioned. What is the size on it though?

    Also, Hodinkee just posted and article on the FC Slimline Moon, with some pictures. I really like the fact that everything is set through the crown.

    Quite impressive. At the $3,000 price point, that is about as good as you can get. Well, it would be if it was not for the 42 mm size.
