MAURICE LACROIX – Masterpiece Gravity

Maurice Lacroix


Maurice LacroixFounded in 1975, Maurice Lacroix has won an abundance of patents and design awards for their unique innovations. They have a very special clientele of the worlds elite and the brand is counted among the rare breed of truly unique mechanical watches. Buoyed up by a formidable capacity to view the world from a different perspective, Maurice Lacroix loves defying conventions. Its new Masterpiece Gravity is a perfect example of this attitude, since it is the first watch equipped with an assortment – balance roller, lever and escapement wheel – entirely made of silicon. Three times lighter than steel, this material is also more accurate, less energy-hungry and requires no lubricant. Like the oscillator, this fascinating innovation is clearly visible within a resolutely contemporary aesthetic composition accentuated by an off-centred hour and minute dial, as well as small seconds creating fascinating depth effects.
