Luxury Swiss watchmaker Maurice Lacroix has a resume that is hard to match, producing some of the world's top timepieces and, in the run up to the 2014 Baselwold show, they've introduced yet another show-stopper. Named the Masterpiece Gravity, this watch has a design as interesting as it is technically advanced, showcasing the brand's ability to be an innovator with this piece being the first to feature silicon for the double roller of the balance wheel, pallet fork, and escape wheel. The decision to use silicon is fitting since silicon is self-lubricating, is durable, yet light, and, since it undergo's significant wear and tear, a wise choice. The watch face measures 43mm and comes in both a satin-brushed and polished or sandblasted and anthracite PVD-finished stainless steel. Probably the most striking is the sapphire crystal that is domed and magnifies the Clou de Paris and Côtes de Genève Colimaçon patterns inside. The Masterpiece Gravity will make its debut at the 2014 Baselworld where the pricing is most likely to be announced.
