The auction of three unique Maurice Lacroix Pontos Decentrique GMT timepieces is in its final days of bidding.
The watches were designed by three of the world’s most prolific designers, chosen by Maurice Lacroix in association with Wallpaper*: Arik Levy, who has taken the renowned Lacroix aesthetic and injected contemporary elements that establish his own identity within the piece; French designer, Gwenael Nicolas, who takes Lacroix’s original concept of a bi-circular design and adapts it into five circles – each representing one of the planet’s five continents; and British designer Neil Barrett who has combined his knowledge of bonded leather with established convention to create an innovative variation to modern watch-making.
The designs, which were originally unveiled at the Baselworld watch fair in March, were well received by an audience of experts and industry professionals.
The proceeds of the auction, which ends on 19 June, will be donated to personally chosen charities of the designers: Arik Levy, has chosen Sinjiya-Ton, a charity dedicated to the aid of Malian street children; Gwenael Nicolas, human aid organisation Medicins Sans Frontieres; while Neil Barrett will give his proceeds to Oxfam.
The bidding starts at €4,250 for each watch and the auction is being hosted by both Wallpaper* and the Maurice Lacroix sites. For further information and to make a bid, click here.
