A Sporty Outlook on Life and LivingBASELWORLD 2011 Preview: Pontos Chronographe Valjoux
True to the principles of the Pontos collection, the new Pontos Chronographe plays the game with no need for time out. Its pure-bred style suffers no compromise. With its sporty, sculptured lines, this watch is designed to show off its distinctive features. Contemporary in style, the blue dial highlights the chronograph functions and gives substance to its overall proportions. Powered by precision mechanics, this watch is aimed at those who appreciate sportsmanship and design.
A variation on the Pontos Chronographe series launched in 2004, the Pontos Chronographe timepieces are operated by an automatic movement based on the Valjoux 7750 caliber, renowned for its performance and reliability. It is fitted with a chronograph featuring 30-minute and 12-hour counters, and the small seconds and date apertures are at 9 and 6 o’clock respectively, creating a beautifully balanced display of the time data.
The steely blue color of the sun-brushed finished dial confirms its high quality and pedigree. To achieve optimum legibility, the applied index markers and hands have a luminescent coating. The steel case features skilfully designed push-pieces that retract into the case middle, while the case back opens fully to reveal the beauty of the mechanism inside. Available with a bracelet or leather strap, the new Maurice Lacroix chronograph is an utterly reliable master of short time measurement.
