Sporty. Modern. Feminine. Maurice Lacroix's Miros Collection represents the ultimate in ladies watches, with a heady mixture of verve and finesse. Its esthetic, carefully cultivated down to the smallest detail, reveals a watch that is both delicate and full of energy. A multitasker, like the woman who wears it will be sure to impose its style, whatever the circumstances.

With its curved, clean lines and petulant temperament, the Miros Chronographe Ladies watch fits on the wrist like a second skin. It is ultra-modern and versatile, available with a white leather strap or a steel bracelet, and is a 38mm-diameter twin to the brand's masculine chronographs. Designed to be worn by day or by night, with jeans or with an evening gown, this is a watch that, whether gem-set or otherwise, can adapt to every situation, as a companion in your daily routine or a partner for a chic evening engagement.

Its steel case protects a silvered dial whose sunburst satin finish shimmers delicately against the skin. The chronograph counters are arranged in classic style: the 30-minute counter at 10 o'clock and 10-hour chronograph at 6 o'clock are counterbalanced by a small seconds disk at 2 o'clock. The generously- proportioned date display majestically presides over the other time indications at 12 o'clock. The watch's face varies depending on the different versions of the model: it may have a brown mother-of-pearl surface, or adorned with diamond index markers or fully-equipped with a tachymeter. The chronograph, driven by a quartz movement, is designed for use by the general public while maintaining the very highest level of functional accuracy. An extraordinary feat achieved with great panache, and undeniable proof of Maurice Lacroix's depth of watchmaking expertise.
