Speaking of the movement, the caliber ML112 housed by this chronograph automatic watch is not particularly an exclusive (manufacture) movement. This cams integrated chronograph is an ETA 7750 based, which is personalized by Maurice Lacroix to comply with their own preference --which mostly, aesthetic. Typical to Valjoux 7750 based caliber, the ML-112 is “fairly loud”, and this 25 jewels movement is winding at a single direction. This calibre is beating at 28,800 alterations per hour, and when fully wound, it provides 46 hours of power reserve. Maurice Lacroix ML112 is not a chronometer grade, and as far as we know, this 13¼ lignes movement is rated to perform in between the elaboré and top grade of the original ETA 7750.
