Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity 40th Anniversary Limited

The Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity was first introduced at Baselworld 2014 with an off-centre hour and minutes display and the distinctive characteristic of featuring balance staff, pallet lever, escapement wheel and escapement wheel pinion all made in silicium and visible on the dial side of the watch (we wrote about it here).

Silicium is a self-lubricating, glass-like material which is three times lighter than steel. Thanks to the low mass the regulating organ consumes less energy, is more accurate and does not require regular lubrication.

In 2015, on occasion of Baselworld, Maurice Lacroix presented three limited editions of the Masterpiece Gravity including one special version which celebrates the brand’s 40th anniversary.


The Masterpiece Gravity 40th Anniversary (ref. MP6118-ALB01-430) will be produced in just 40 pieces with a Powerlite case. Powerlite is a special alloy that combines aluminium, magnesium, titanium, zirconium and ceramic to deliver excellent properties being twice as light as steel but also twice as hard. Powerlite is also ideal to receive PVD treatments. In fact the beautiful anthracite colour of the case of this limited edition is achieved using an anodizing process which makes the surface scratch-resistant while creating a unique visual appearance.


The 43 mm case frames an eye-catching dial where the off-centre hours and minutes display features a striking blue lacquered dial which is domed at its centre and retained with two mirror-polished screws. It includes diamond cut indexes, rhodium plated hands and a rhodium plated minute track. Vertically aligned on the same axis, the small seconds sub-dial is also blue lacquered.


The main bridges - positioned adjacent the hour and minutes display - have a sandblasted finish with polished bevelled edges.

The domed sapphire crystal magnifies the oscillator and enhances the three dimensional construction of the dial.


The automatic manufacture movement Calibre ML230 beats at 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5Hz), an optimal frequency for a a fully silicium assortment as it proves gentler to the glass-like substance than those experienced in some higher oscillating movements. The power reserve is 50 hours.

Maurice Lacroix engineers reduced the number of the movement components to just 188 in order to achive the combined benefit of a clean appearance and enhanced reliability. The rest of the movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

The new Masterpiece Gravity 40th Anniversary is joined by two further limited editions, delivered in two variations, each limited to 250 pieces.


The classical execution (ref. MP6118-SS001-112) in satin and polished stainless steel includes an off-centre hour and minutes display featuring a pure white lacquered dial with black Roman numerals, gold-plated hands and a minute track consisting of blue and black markings. A circular Côtes de Genève motif decorates the rest of the dial.


The contemporary execution (ref. MP6118-PVB01-330) features a stainless steel case with black PVD coating and a black lacquered off-centre hour and minutes display, diamond cut indexes, and rhodium finished hands. The dial is decorated with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes accentuated with black DLC treatment. Red accents enhance the avant-garde look.


The price of the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Gravity 40th Anniversary is Swiss Francs 13,900 while the other two 250-piece limited editions will retail at Swiss Francs 10,500. mauricelacroix.com
