How many hands does one watch need? If you ask Maurice Lacroix they will tell you five. Their original Cinq Aiguilles
was launched in 1990 and for Baselworld 2006 they have created new versions of the model. According to Time Zone
, the new model uses the
current in-house movement the automatic caliber ML120 (based on a Technotime TT 738). The five hand show the the hours,
minutes, seconds, weekday and date. Each of the five hands is shaped differently and the dial has the days of the week
on it. The watch is available in 18K rose gold or stainless steel. The new version is larger than the previous one and
comes in understated models similar to the original or in those new bold rainbow look. The more understated version is
after the jump.
