Every week until BaselWorld, we’ll be introducing 2 brand NEW Maurice Lacroix models. We begin our 2013 BaselWorld tour this week with the NEW Pontos Chronographe (PT6288 and PT6188). Available in stunning black or white lacquered execution with contrasting counters in white or black and contrasting blue and red printing, in classic and contemporary silver or new black execution with pink gold-plated applied indexes. It has a 43mm case, Maurice Lacroix ML112 caliber, self-winding and power reserve to 46 hours.

PONTOS CHRONOGRAPHE

The character of the new Pontos Chronographe remains loyal to the codes of the Pontos collection: design, contemporary style and purity. In this sporty version, the range becomes an archetype by refusing any compromise. With a contemporary two-tone look, its dial succeeds in both highlighting its functions and creating an impression on life's playing fields. Driven by a precise mechanism, the self-winding ML112caliber, it is designed for all who love sport and smart design.

A variation of the Pontos Chronographe series launched in 2004, the new Pontos Chronographe's self-winding movement is based on the Valjoux 7750 caliber, recognized for its precision and reliability. Equipped with a chronograph that boasts both a 30-minute and a 12-hour counter, it also has a small seconds and date display, at 9 o'clock and 6 o'clock respectively, in keeping with the spirit of balanced harmony.

The deep black of its sun-brushed dial confirms its distinguished character. In order to ensure perfect readability, the applied indexes and hands are highlighted with luminescent material. This timepiece isn't just easy to read, it also has a more modern esthetic. Its push-buttons merge so subtly into the steel case middle that they seem to become part of it, while the case back is left open to view the beauty of the mechanism that it encloses. Available with a steel bracelet or leather strap, this new chronograph tracks short time durations with unfailing determination.

For lovers of fine watchmaking with memories of the chronographs of yesteryear, a retro design with a vintage look is also available. It has a black or white lacquered dial and is fitted with a red-tipped seconds hand. Its push-buttons are more discreet, respecting the balance of the design that accentuates even more the refinement and vintage elegance of the timepiece.
