FrontRunners: Triple Crown

<< Back to Robb Report, January 2003

Maurice Lacroix’s flagship Masterpiece Collection strives to marry traditional craftsmanship with modern styling and function. Recently, the prestige collection added two automatic mechanical timepieces featuring triple time-zone functions. The Reveil Globe ($4,350 to $5,750) is a unique new triple time-zone alarm watch that keeps you on schedule while you are crisscrossing the globe. The Reveil Globe’s solid silver dial displays three different time zones simultaneously: one via traditional hands, the second by an additional hour hand and interior rotating ring, and the third through a window above the 6. The Reveil Globe’s sister model is the sporty Chrono Globe ($4,250 to $5,800), which takes the triple time-zone concept and adds mechanical chronograph functions. These two new models from Maurice Lacroix (800.794.7736) bring new meaning to the term jet set.
