Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Chronograph

Swiss watch brand Maurice Lacroix has released a new interpretation of its best-selling model, the PONTOS. Endowed with chronograph, day and date indications, extravagant details and a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel, the PONTOS S Chronograph blends elegance and sport.

The PONTOS S Chronograph features a sandblasted dial, offered in a choice of two colours: silvery white or dark blue. The hour and minute hands are partially open-worked and lined with Super-LumiNova®.

Facetted and applied indexes denote the hours. Positioned between each index and the minute track, a rectangular-shaped soupçon of SLN augments readability in dim light conditions. The aforementioned track uses a combination of crisp lines and red Arabic numerals, optimising overall legibility.

There is a small seconds display at 9 o’clock and a day and date display positioned opposite, all of which prove simple to read. The dominant counters comprise a 30-minute register at 12 o’clock and a 12-hour register below, each endowed with sandblasted centres and framed with snailed detail.

This sport chronograph simultaneously exhibits a classical, retro appearance. It has a 43 mm diameter case in stainless steel. The tachymeter bezel is executed in scratch-resistant ceramic.

Maurice Lacroix has retained some design elements found on former models such as the elongated push-pieces and the distinctive double-stepped lugs. The case juxtaposes satin-brushed and polished surfaces. The sapphire crystal case-back affords sight of the automatic ML112 calibre. The movement features Côtes de Genève, perlage and sunbrush decorations.

The model is supplied on a colour co-ordinated, M-branded nylon strap with tone-on-tone stitching that is lined with luxurious nubuck leather.

The PONTOS S Chronograph is also available with a 3-rows steel bracelet. Owners can modify the appearance of the watch thanks to the Easy Strap Exchange system, swapping the strap or bracelet for an alternative, without the need for tools.
