Powerful Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronographe Rectangulaire Full Black Watch

Feb 01, 2010
The universally-famous watchmaking house Maurice Lacroix has recently unveiled its new Pontos Chronographe Rectangulaire Full Black watch, reserved specially for men. Highly advanced from a technological standpoint, this appealing monochrome creation exposes a case, which affirms its character in an athletic style.

The undeniable highlight of the watch is a revolutionary ceramic coating of the case, which adds to its durability and takes this model to totally new frontiers. Full black, the remarkable Maurice Lacroix chronograph is accented with subtle touches of white Superluminova, presented on the tone-on-tone architecture of its layers.

The functionality of the watch includes hours, minutes and seconds, date and chronograph.

Animating the functions of the new Maurice Lacroix watch is a self-winding, ML 112 calibre movement. The movement incorporates 25 jewels. It operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Rhodium-plated and circular-grained, this mechanism demonstrates snailed finishing with Cotes de Geneve patterns.

All the technical secrets of the watch are housed in a steel case, treated with a black ceramic sand-blasted coating. The dimensions of the case are 38.21mm X 42.85 mm. The case is assembled with a curved sapphire crystal provided with an external and internal anti-reflective treatment. It also exposes a screw-down sapphire back. Incorporated into the case is a lever system, which serves to guide the push-pieces.

The Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronographe Rectangulaire Full Black watch proudly exposes its velvety black dial. It is completed with facetted black hands, tipped with a coat of white Superluminova. This compound produces a blue luminescent effect, which makes the dial more legible.

The dial is also equipped with hour, minute and small seconds sub-dials, positioned at 6, 12 and 9 oclock correspondingly. They are kept company by a date aperture, nestled at 3 oclock.

The novel Maurice Lacroix watch is accompanied by a black reinforced genuine rubber strap, which terminates in a steel buckle, treated with a black ceramic coating. The water-resistance of the watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is down to 50 meters.
