Maurice Lacroix Pontos Day/Date – New “Vintage” Dial Versions

The emblematic Day/Date is the best-selling watch in the Pontos Collection, and this model is now available in three “Vintage” dial options.

The Pontos Day/Date is an exceptional and minimalistic watch that indicates time with finesse and clarity.  Brushed and polished surfaces blend harmoniously on the well proportioned stainless steel case which is measuring 40mm. Each facet interfaces with light differently, enhancing owner enjoyment and reminding the wearer of the quality case construction. Short case lugs, sharply taper downwards gives a comfortable fitting of strap.

The Pontos Day/Date is available in three “Vintage” dial options, green, light grey or light brown. Their retro appearance confers a classicism which is very appealing. Each variant employs the same contrasting colour for the central seconds hand and the text, “Automatic” is proclaimed in the lower portion of the dial.

The diamond cut Hours and Minutes hands have luminous tips aiding legibility in poor light. Areas of brightness and shade are created by the applied diamond cut indexes, once more successfully exploiting light. A minute track frames the extremities of the dial.

A date aperture resides above 6 o’clock and most notably a day display is presented in an arching aperture below noon. The alluring aesthetics are completed with the discreet crown which neatly hugs the case band and is protected by the adjacent crown guards.

The screwed caseback with a wide sapphire crystal offers the view of the fine rhodium-coated automatic Calibre ML 143 featuring perlage and Côtes de Genève decoration. The Pontos Day/Date models are supplied with genuine black or brown calfskin strap. Also available with stainless steel bracelet, combining brushed and polished surfaces.
