Maurice Lacroix Pontos Day/Date (New Models)

The best-selling watch in the Pontos Collection, the emblematic profile of the Day/Date model is now available with either a black or two-tone dial to enhance readability. Its deep, radiant finish emphasizes its functions, underlines its timeless elegance and confirms its distinguished character.

Under the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, the demeanor is stately. The domed dial is marked out by applied indexes in pink gold with imposing outlines. Their tips highlighted by luminescent material seem to clamor for attention. The faceted hour and minute hands, also tipped with Superluminova, seem only too eager to comply. They follow their course over a somber backdrop, illuminated by a radiant, sun-brushed finish that seems enhance the size of the dial thanks to its majestic brilliance.

A date aperture maintains a very discreet presence at 6 o’clock. The day of the week is displayed at the other side of the dial in an arching semi-circle. The two indications are daily accomplices in recording the passage of time. They are each revealed by a section cut out from the surrounding mass, forming their own small niche and providing esthetically-pleasing contrast on the dial.

The 40 mm diameter case holds its own with alternating finishes. There is a subtle alternation of polished and satin finishes, the former reflecting the light, the latter capturing it, in a quest for classical refinement that extends even to the choice of the ML143 caliber, recognized for its impressive efficiency and reliability.

For lovers of fine watchmaking with memories of the chronographs of yesteryear, a retro design with a vintage look is also available. On a black or silvered dial, the rail-track pattern for following the seconds indication is highlighted in red and blue in a truly classic style, thus matching the metallic blue of the seconds hand.
