A year ago at Baselworld, Maurice Lacroix turned heads with its original Masterpiece Gravity model. This watch was expressly celebrated as one of the first watches with an assortment completely made of silicon. However for Baselworld 2015, the brand wanted to take things farther. After all, 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the Bienne-based brand. Hence at Baselworld this year, Maurice Lacroix introduced its three new Masterpiece Gravity models. All are limited editions, yet the most striking – and limited – among them is the Masterpiece Gravity 40th. The Masterpiece Gravity 40th is not just a new color or material combination for the watch: it also draws together a number of Maurice Lacroix innovations, in materials, design, and engineering.
Now with five accent color options, the 43mm Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Chronograph is one of the most aesthetically appealing Swiss-made sports watches priced under $5,000. If you’re not hot on the metallic orange color scheme I enjoyed on my review model, Maurice Lacroix offers four additional colors you might prefer.
