For the benefit of UNICEF Japan, a three-way partnership involves Kris Van Assche, Wallpaper* and Maurice Lacroix on a collaboration watch titled “Rough Conviction.” Based on watchmaker Maurice Lacroix’s Pontos Décentrique GMT, the watch is characterized by yellow gold and hand-painted details. Rhodium hands are complimented by a hybrid stainless steel and calfskin strap. The one-of-a-kind watch is available now on live auction at Antiquorum Auctioneers until June 22.
“Doing a watch is quite interesting because it’s such a symbol. So I thought it was kind of a challenge. I knew it was going to be well made – and if you’re going to make a watch, it had better be well made.” – Kris Van Assche.
