Brief
Background:
Maurice Lacroix presented its first manufacture model in 2006, featuring a hand-wound movement. In 2011, the brand launches the new Masterpiece Manufacture Automatique models: a total six watch references within the Masterpiece collection featuring the new manufacture automatic movement (no need to hand-wound anymore) that is fully manufactured in-house. To celebrate this significant movement, Maurice Lacroix is inviting creative talents to create video/animation demonstrating the spirit of the new Manufacture Automatique - automatic, impact and emotion (please read appendix for more background information).

The Brief:
An automatic clock is almost like a perpetual motion machine: as soon as you move the wrist a little, the clock will keep on running. In brief, an automatic clock is always in motion. This insight is our claim for “Never stop moving”. But this simple sentence has more importance. It shows the permanent conviction Maurice Lacroix invests into bringing its Masterpiece to a higher stage. Masterpice manufacture watches are now automatics.
We want you to tell us what is your conviction. What is the one thing that you’ll never stop pursuing no matter what challenges life throws at you? Through a 30 – 60 sec video/animation, tell us what is that one motivation in your life that keeps you in motion. That you will never stop moving until you get it.

Video/animation must express the core values of Maurice Lacroix: Authentic, Contemporary, Confident.(Please refer to appendix for more information on the core values)

Mandatory:
To include the line “Never stop moving” and Maurice Lacroix logo in the last frame. Logo can be downloaded here.

Appendix

Background:
Maurice Lacroix has repositioned both brand and product portfolio by launching the new “Follow your convictions” campaign. One of the milestones that Maurice Lacroix has achieved and is now recognized by both trade & press as a true watch “manufacturer”. However, this mention is mostly relevant to the industry and few “in the know” consumers, not core target consumers.

In 2011, Maurice Lacroix is launching its 1st manufacture movements with an automatic winding mechanism on its upper range of in-house developed and produced watches. This is another important milestone for the brand.

Besides the fact that the manufacture competence is not such relevant for our target consumers, the prestige and the skill reached through this launch can be considered in the consumers eyes as more perfection, quality and practicality. In the competitive environment, this strengthens the perception, the differentiation and the positioning of Maurice Lacroix.
