Hey there, watch fans! Feldmar Watch Company is proud to bring you an elegant timepiece today from Maurice Lacroix - the Pontos Grand Guichet GMT. Read on!

Maurice Lacroix's history is unique. By 1961, a Swiss company by the name of Desco von Schulthess had taken an interest in watchmaking and acquired Tiara in Saignelégier, a small time Swiss watchmaker. Having spent years manufacturing timepieces for third-party clients, by 1975 Desco sought to expand into watchmaking for itself. Marketing them under the name Maurice Lacroix, the new brand was born.

With the Pontos Grand Guichet GMT, Maurice Lacroix flexed its design muscles, bringing to market an elegant yet functional timepiece. Housed in a 40mm stainless steel case, the ML-129 movement is a modified ETA 2892-A2 with GMT module. Instead of a centrally mounted GMT hand, the complication rests at the 6 o'clock position in its own subdial. Notice the subtle geometry of the black dial which flows around the subdial and date indicator at the noon position. Arrayed around are sharp, silver applied indices that pair gracefully with the blade hands. A pair of boldly crafted lugs affix to a gorgeous black leather strap with its foldover clasp.

This item is in excellent pre-owned condition. See photos! Does not include box or papers. Comes with our Feldmar Watch Company Certified Pre-Owned 2 Year Warranty.

I've seen this movement (big date at 12, second time zone at 6) in a few watches and have some questions about it, if you don't mind.

How is the second time zone set?
Does the hours hand jump? Or is it set as if it were a secondary movement?
Also, does the seconds hand hack?

Appreciate your help!
