Amazing as it is, the new watch will absolutely win the hearts of watch lovers from the entire world. This timepiece was created by the watchmaker and engineer Michel Vermont, and because of its ingenuity the company’s position was cemented in the third millennium.

Inspired by traditional regulator watches, the extraordinary Masterpiece Regulateur Roue Carree watch blends an anthracite in-house manufactured mechanical movement – ML 153 with a linear satin finish. The mechanism is in a sculptured steel case of 43 mm. Its case back is from sapphire.

The watch’s dial is made from the main plate of the movement. This watch is the perfect match between a functional layout and a marvelous design. The display attracts with the central minutes hand and small seconds counter, placed at 6 o’clock. It also has a power saver indicator at 3 o’clock. The outstanding visibility even under reduced light condition is assured by the large minutes hand and engraved numbers, treated with a Superluminova compound.

The best part of the dial is the display of hours. The hours are shown by a square wheel with geometrical openwork, an innovative phenomenon in the world of watch making. It turns regularly being activated by another wheel that has a cloverleaf form. A raised corner with a Superluminova-applied serves to indicate the hour.

The productive cooperation between the Maurice Lacroix specialists and Haute Ecole Arc Ingenerie at Le Locle realized the extraordinary device for the Masterpiece Regulateur Roue Carree watch. Many hours of intensive works were needed to do fine adjustments, calculations, simulations and tests that were necessary for its manufacturing. It is already known that the gear profiles for non-circular wheels are not regular by definition, and this was the biggest difficulty for the team: to define shapes of the teeth that assure the power transmission to the equipment. After a lot of simulations the goal was accomplished by using LIGA technology.

The specialists in the watch making world transformed the circle into a square: the angles and the profiles of the wheels are matching perfectly with each other and make a fabulous visual effect.
