With the 2007 launched chronograph Mémoire 1, Maurice Lacroix, after three years of development, presented the world's first mechanical movement with memory function. Even with the design of the case and the dial as well as with the movement decoration and the materials the company is treading new paths.
The self-winding movement ML 128 was awarded the “Golden Balance” 2008 (in the division Technology Prize) of the German Uhrenmagazin. The special construction features claim that time and stop function are represented on the same pair of hands. In addition, the mechanism realizes the value once stopped and allows the wearer of the watch to switch between the two times as often as he wishes.
The watch is limited to only 20 pieces.
The price of the watch, which is brought on the market in 2008, is approximately 300,000 Euros.
