The new Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Supercharged is a powerful and bold watch, but the most immediate is that the case of 48 mm diameter is not suitable for all wrist’s out there.

Clearly sporty lines and legibility of the dial is an example for each of the features offered: central hands and diamond hour minutes, faceted and luminescent, small seconds at 9 o’clock, Central Chronograph treadmill; counter 12 hours at 6 o’clock, 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock and date window at 3 o’clock.

As you can see from the pictures, the new watch from Maurice Lacroix will come in steel (with red trim) but also have a PVD black version (with yellow trim). The colour scheme can be seen in some areas of the field and components, as well as in the stitching of the perforated leather/textile strap.

In addition, the inner rotating bezel, which controls the time and is patented under the name of “elapsed time controller”, is adjusted by the crown located at 2 o’clock.

The Pontos S Supercharge is water resistant to 200 meters, inside we find the ML140 caliber, which is a custom ETA Valgranges (rhodium, ornate pearl and straight Côtes de Genève motif). mauricelacroix.com
