Maurice Lacroix

Online Auction for a good cause:

The three unique designs by Patricia Urquiola, Rodolfo Dordoni and Kris Van Assche for Maurice Lacroix go on sale.

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni and Belgian fashion designer Kris Van Assche have each designed a one-off version of the “Pontos Décentrique GMT”. The watches will be auctioned online and the proceeds will be donated to a charity of their choice.

Brand new versions of the award-winning design In 2010, Maurice Lacroix and Wallpaper* launched their first joint project with designers Gwenaël Nicolas, Arik Levy and Neil Barrett, a re-interpretation of the 2007 Red Dot Award-winning Pontos Décentrique GMT. Three designers have once again had the chance to create their own interpretation of this classic in 2011, in an exercise that reflected their personality without obscuring the original.

European Design Force For this year’s joint project Maurice Lacroix and Wallpaper* sought uncompromising designers who are true to their beliefs and whose work reflects their own styles. The result is an impressive trio, consisting of Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni and Belgian designer Kris Van Assche.

Each of them has now created a unique interpretation of the “Pontos Décentrique GMT” — free of any aesthetic preconditions. The watches will be presented at the “Baselworld” watchmaking and jewelry trade fair in March 2011 then sold by auction on from June1st to 22nd, 2011. The proceeds will go to three charitable organizations of the Designers’ choice.
