Watches And Art: At Baselworld 2017 With Artist Alexa Meade And Maurice Lacroix

While in my day job I’m rumored to be a moderately creative guy, and in my youth I was a bit of an instrumentalist, suffice it to say that when it came to drawing and sculpting I never really showed any aptitude. That hasn’t kept me from admiring the works of visual artists, though, and over the past several years my attention has been drawn to the works of one painter in particular: Alexa Meade. You may imagine my surprise when I found her staging an art installation for Maurice Lacroix at Baselworld 2017!

Masterpiece Mysterious Seconds on the wrist

Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Mystery And The Solar System

The Masterpiece Mystery is one of my favorite pieces to come from Maurice Lacroix in a while, and it highlights said mystery very clearly with a giant subdial featuring a “floating” second hand. When I first saw this, I, like some others, had the initial impression that something was wrong with the hand. Until I saw it moving. At that moment, I knew I wanted to know how they did it, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a model to take a closer look.
