Maurice Lacroix unveils new interpretation of the PONTOS S


Maurice Lacroix has reinterpreted the PONTOS and has implemented chronograph, day and date indications as well as a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel.

The brand wants to bridge watchmaking elegance and sport with the model and aims to unite them further with the new design.

The PONTOS S Chronograph features a sandblasted dial, offered in a choice of two colors: silvery white or dark blue.


The hour and minute hands are partially open worked and lined with Super-LumiNova, while facetted and applied indexes denote the hours, shining with just the merest suggestion of light.

Positioned between each index and the minute track, a rectangular-shaped soupçon of SLN augments readability in dim light conditions.

The dial initially appears to have just two counters, arranged along a north-south axis. However, closer examination reveals there is a small second’s display at 9 o’clock and a day and date display positioned opposite.

The design team 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, delivering contrast and a notable sense of style.

To the rear of the watch, a pane of sapphire crystal affords sight of the automatic ML112 caliber. Upholding Maurice Lacroix’s reputation for delivering high-perceived value, the movement is appointed with a combination of Côtes de Genève, perlage and sun brush decoration.

The model is supplied on a color coordinated, 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.

It will retail for $3,350 on the stainless steel bracelet and $3,100 with the nylon strap. A special package with both will cost $3,380.
