Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Worldtimer Watch Review
Wednesday - 01 May 2013
Two versions of the Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Worldtimer are available: one with Europe engraved on the centre of the dial, and one with Asia.
The European model features guilloché work with a Clous de Paris motif. The world map has blue shorelines to match the hands and hour markers.
The Asian version has a silvered dial, sun-brushed satin-finished continents, and opaline oceans. It has pink gold numerals and hands, and a blue seconds hand.
Both models have city names inscribed on the flange of the bezel. The 24-hour hand indicates the time in the wearer's place of residence, and pressing the push-button enables the adjustment of the 12-hour hand to show the time in his current location.
A day/night indication is positioned at 9 o'clock, and a date display at 6 o'clock. The watch has a stainless steel case measuring 42 mm, and a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
The Masterpiece Worldtimer is powered by self-winding ML164 mechanical movement. The disks and bridges have circular graining and the Côtes de Genève motif, and the gold-plated oscillating weight also features Côtes de Genève decorative work.
The watch is water resistant to 50 metres, and comes with a genuine crocodile-skin strap in black or brown, or a metal bracelet.
