Maurice Lacroix Eliros: Timeless Elegance
The Maurice Lacroix Eliros collection stands out with its simple and modern designs. These watches are ready for any occasion, from the grocery run to formal events. Precise quartz calibers also mean they're affordable, flat, and low maintenance.
Men's and Women's Watches for Every Occasion
The watches of the Maurice Lacroix Eliros collection are perhaps best described as minimalist, timeless, and elegant. Defining features include flat cases, tidy dials with a combination of Roman numerals and indices, and narrow lance hands. The cases range from 30 to 40 mm in diameter and have a depth rating of 50 m (5 bar, 164 ft). While you can leave your Eliros on for most activities, it should not be submerged in water.
Top men's models boast a chronograph function or moon phase display. Watches with a golden PVD coating look especially refined, while black versions with red hands and stitching on their straps feel rather sporty and modern. Maurice Lacroix mounts each Eliros watch on either a leather strap or stainless steel bracelet. The bracelets are available in a multi-link or braided Milanese style.
The most breathtaking Elrios women's timepieces include diamond-studded moon phase watches with mother-of-pearl dials. There are also simple three-hand editions with a date display and white dial.

Prices for the Three-Hand Eliros Date
Simple three-hand watches with a date display at 3 o'clock comprise the majority of the Eliros collection. These men's and women's watches feature 30 to 40-mm stainless steel cases. Select models also have a rose gold PVD coating. You can choose from a blue, black, white, or anthracite dial. Roman numerals mark the hours at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock, with narrow line indices signifying the other hours. The brand logo and "Maurice Lacroix" inscription sit below 12 o'clock. Long, delicate lance hands complete the look.
The Swiss manufacturer mounts the different models on calf leather straps or stainless steel bracelets. The latter are available in a multi-link or braided Milanese style, while the leather straps come in black, brown, or blue and are embossed with the Maurice Lacroix logo.
If you're looking for a classic, 40-mm timepiece, you may enjoy the ref. EL1118-SS001-311-1. This model pairs rose gold-plated hands with an anthracite dial and brown leather strap.

The same timepiece on a stainless steel bracelet demands roughly 690 USD.
The ref. EL1094-PVP06-150-1 is the highlight of the Eliros Date series. This 30-mm women's timepiece has a rose gold-plated case and bracelet. On the dial, Maurice Lacroix has replaced the standard line indices with 8 diamonds weighing a total of 0.04 carats. This treasure requires an investment of some 950 USD in mint condition.

Prices for the Eliros Chronograph
The Maurice Lacroix Eliros collection also contains numerous chronographs. These 40-mm timepieces share the same basic design as the three-hand models. However, their date display has shifted to 4:30 to make room for a small seconds at 3 o'clock. There's also a 10-hour counter at 6 and 30-minute counter at 9 o'clock. The Elrios chronograph is available on a leather strap or stainless steel Milanese bracelet. Prices for a watch with a blue dial and a steel bracelet come in at around 820 USD. Gold-plated models on a leather strap cost about the same.
Fans of sportier timepieces should check out the ref. EL1098-PVB01-310-1 with a black PVD-coated case, black leather strap, and red accents on its dial and strap. This chronograph changes hands for roughly 970 USD.
The Eliros with a Moon Phase Display
After the chronograph, the moon phase display is one of the most popular watch complications. Moon phases are especially well suited to classically elegant timepieces, such as the Maurice Lacroix Eliros. The men's watches are 40 mm in diameter and feature a prominent moon phase display on their dials' upper half. The Maurice Lacroix logo and inscription are located just above the date window at 6 o'clock. The Eliros Moonphase ref. EL1108-PVP01-112-1 features a gold-plated case and sells for just over 690 USD. Moon phase watches in plain stainless steel demand similar prices.
Maurice Lacroix also produces 35-mm unisex watches with a moon phase display on the lower half of the dial. The overall design is much more delicate and returns the date display to its conventional position at 3 o'clock. These smaller moon phase watches are also available with a mother-of-pearl dial. One example is the EL1096-SD502-170-1, which also boasts eight diamond hour indices and 64 diamonds on its bezel. The 72 diamonds have a total weight of 0.39 carats. This dazzling timepiece costs about 2,100 USD. Models with eight diamond indices but no diamonds on their bezels are much more affordable at around 910 USD.
