Time to support a good cause - buy a fine Maurice Lacroix watch

This week, auction website CharityBuzz is offering a fine timepiece to support the Ellen Hermanson Foundation.

The Foundation was established in 1997 to honour the memory of Ellen Hermanson. Ellen channeled her journalistic talents to become a forceful voice for breast cancer patients and their families.

The watch on offer is a Maurice Lacroix women's Masterpiece Phase de Lune Dame timepiece.

Maurice Lacroix is a comparatively young watch brand, but it has already established itself has one to watch due to a series of innovative developments. Since the beginning of the 1990s, the brand has been concentrating on the development of attractive, surprising additional functions for mechanical watch models.

Building a reputation with retrograde displays as well as chronographs and moon phase indications, the company's great recent breakthrough is the Memoire 1: With the Memory function, which found its initial application in this strictly limited chronograph, Maurice Lacroix has, in the year 2008, officially presented an entirely new Grande Complication.

 

With a groundbreaking step like that, the company's early watches are only likely increase in value as the company goes from strength to strength. The current piece, which features a diamond bezel made out of Top Wesselton Diamonds, is expected to achieve $8,500.

The auction closes on Thursday September 16. Collectors and investors interested in fine timepieces from exciting new watchmakers should take a look at this piece from Grieb & Benzinger.
