Departing from his native Israel in 1988, Arik Levy has since gone on to establish himself as a force in the creative world. Artist, photographer, technician and designer, Levy describes his compulsion to create as 'an uncontrollable muscle'.

Now based in Paris, Levy - among his many guises - is the creative director of 'L Paris’', where he works with a 20-strong team of designers and graphic artists, producing 'honest design'.

An ideal candidate then, for Maurice Lacroix’s Pontos Décentrique GMT project. Condensing his freewheeling approach to the confines of a watch face, Levy has focused on the textural interaction between materials and the illusion of depth.

Levy plans to donate the proceeds of this summer’s auction to Sinjiya-Ton, a charity dedicated to the aid of Malian street children.
