Maurice Lacroix – AIKON Chronograph

The Maurice Lacroix – AIKON Chronograph watch face is a classic looking face that incorporates blue accents on a sleek silver background. This is a perfect face for any watch using a metal band, though it also looks great on just about any round screen. If you are a fan of 1990’s design, then the Maurice Lacroix – AIKON Chronograph face should make you feel right at home.

Monetization: $1.99 / no ads / no IAPs | Android Wear 2.0: yes

Maurice Lacroix embraces its blue period. It is time to wear blue. Few watches are regarded as an icon. The aspiration to create a watch that is immediately recognised by many purely by seeing its unique design, is shared by all watch companies. In the 1990s, Maurice Lacroix had such a watch, the Calypso. This iconic quartz timepiece graced the wrists of many style conscious wearers and proved very successful.

Maurice Lacroix – Masterpiece Square Wheel

The Maurice Lacroix – Masterpiece Square Wheel watch face uses an attractive design that has a square shaped gear that reveals what time it is by the numbers viewable inside of its grid-like structure. This way you don’t have to depend on the watch hands to instantly read the time. For anyone looking for something different than the dull faces you often see released, this is a solid choice.

A watch without a dial? The Masterpiece Square Wheel does not follow convention. It dispenses with a normal dial, instead revealing the movement bridge, effectively the chassis of the movement within. The “Classic” features a black canvas on which to express time. Diamond polished and faceted, luminescent Hours and Minute hands stylishly convey the moment.

Maurice Lacroix – Masterpiece Gravity

The Maurice Lacroix – Masterpiece Gravity watch face has an odd look to it that reveals some of the underlying gears you would find beneath a physical watch face. There is also a standard watch face displayed in the upper right-hand corner, which helps to illustrate how different this design is. Just keep in mind that if you are own a Wear device with a small face, the readability of this particular release could be an issue.

It is an innovative timepiece, at the cutting-edge of progress, which does not merely convey time but emotionally engages with the wearer with creative expression. It presents its oscillator and assortment center stage on the dial side of the watch. The spectacle of seeing the oscillator beating, along with the pallet lever moving, is mesmerising and emits an attractive force few can resist.

Facer – I Love This Town
