Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity Limited Edition

Maurice Lacroix has always been a young minded company with the capacity to create interesting timepieces. In 2014, the brand released a new watch, the Masterpiece Gravity. It stood apart from other watches, courtesy of its iconic design and impressive craftsmanship. Now, the company has unveiled a new and exclusively version of the Masterpiece Gravity; limited to just 25 examples.

Maurice Lacroix believes, a true Masterpiece should captivate its wearer with a richly appointed dial and mechanical virtuosity. So, the Masterpiece Gravity Limited Edition sets aside convention with its design.

The hours and minutes are displayed on an off-centered dial. The hands are lined with yellow Super-LumiNova and they sit above a black checkered surface. The latter features two securing screws and the brand logo and name. Encircling the centre of the dial is a vibrant yellow hour track incorporating black Arabic numerals and white applied indexes, also treated with Super-LumiNova, providing excellent legibility even at night. The off-centre dial is framed with a black minuterie, detailed with crisp white markings.
A small seconds display is located in the lower portion of the dial. Again, it features yellow and grey tones. The prominent hand, incorporating black Super-LumiNova, and large-format numerals ensure excellent readability. The periphery of the small seconds display features a brushed finish and is cantillevered, seemingly floating above the adjacent bridges.
The time indications sit atop a black gold DLC bridge adorned with colima├žon motif and endowed with gleaming bevelled edges. Adjacent to this, the other bridges are sandblasted and brushed.

The Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity Limited Edition features a 43-mm-case, bearing a anthracite PVD-coating. It is water resistant to 5 atm.
Inside the case works the Calibre ML230. The manufacture movement is showcasing Maurice Lacroix’s watchmaking expertise. The oscillator is positioned dial-side, allowing the wearer to observe the hairspring and balance wheel brim with life. The sapphire crystal caseback makes the high-end finishing of the movement visible.
The automatic movement works at a frequency of 2.5 Hz and provides a 50-hour power reserve.
The timepiece is complimented by a black leather strap featuring yellow stitching.
