As a pre-Baselworld 2017 launch the 43mm Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity Blue both inspires and challenges convention.
This is an innovative timepiece which does not merely convey time but emotionally engages with the wearer with creative expression. It presents its oscillator and assortment centre stage on the dial side of the watch. The spectacle of seeing the oscillator beating, along with the pallet lever moving, is mesmerising and emits an attractive force few can resist.
The blue lacquered off-centre hour and minutes display is paired with rhodium-plated hour and minute hands. Sitting below the hour and minutes display, masterfully exploiting depths, is a small seconds display featuring a matching blue sub dial and cheerful red hand. The main plate of the movement is adorned with ‘Vagues du Jura’ motif and wonderfully augments the beauty of this artistic masterpiece.
When the Masterpiece Gravity was first launched at Baselworld 2014, it was the first timepiece to feature a fully silicium assortment.
