Maurice Lacroix is swiss watch manufacturer who has been producing watches like the one you see here since 2010. This new watch is a "mystery" watch, meaning that there is at least one visible part on the watch where no gears are found. The piece on this watch happens to be the second hand, which appears to float around in the designated area. The colors on either tip indicates what line one is supposed to be reading. The video below is from ML's youtube channel and although it is not made for this watch, there is footage of the second hand moving so you can better visualize it. Each version uses the in-house caliber ML215, which is an automatic winding, 48 jewel movement. It shares the same beat rate as the 2500 Omega movement, at 18,000 BPH, or 5 times a second. I only mention this because it is an odd beat rate and is something rarely seen. This is not the first time they have released a mystery watch with the ML215 movement. They have made many versions and each time in a limited edition, preventing themselves from flooding the market but keeping demand high, and with it prices. This time the white "dialed" version seen above will be available in a 250-piece limited series. The black dialed version will have the same number produced. More pictures of this gorgeous watch can be found below. Although I think Maurice Lacroix needs to come out with another movement to keep the concept original, I never tire looking at them. ML did a great job with these watches, don't you think?
