The Maurice Lacroix PONTOS DAY DATE has a color palette dominated by the sober shades of khaki and black could suggest a discreet style, which goes unnoticed.
The new PONTOS Day Date, however, undermines this idea: thanks to its interesting combinations of contrasting shades, this new model is definitely noticeable, especially in an urban context. Not only is it extremely elegant, but above all practical.
The case features an optimized ergonomic design, which fits both a male and female wrist. In short, there are many reasons to choose this urban-chic creation.
The khaki-colored dial of the new PONTOS Day Date is decorated with a sunray effect, while the 41 mm stainless steel case is coated with DLC treatment in the discreet shade of black. Usually, this aesthetic gives the creation a discreet character, especially when worn in a rural setting.
However, this new version of the PONTOS Day Date has been designed for an urban environment: hence the mix of shades and shapes that stands out from the crowd.
The black hour and minute hands, coated with Super-luminova ː, indicate the time, while the applied trapezoidal indexes have a relatively sober style.
On a lower level there is a sandblasted interior minuteria, in the shade of black. It houses a series of bolder clear lines and squares, both treated with SLN, optimally designed to ensure easy reading of minutes and seconds.
On the top, the “M” logo by Maurice Lacroix, also covered in black, dominates the rest of the dial in a minimal and trendy style. Throughout the composition, the dial plays with different textures, finishes, shades and depths.
For example, the day is shown through an arc opening. It is presented in white text on a black disc, embedded but clearly visible. This treatment is repeated at the bottom of the dial, where the date is shown through a recessed square opening, readable and sophisticated.
The central seconds hand has a protruding point that slides over the minute track, increasing readability.
The size of this model makes it suitable for both women and men. In line with other PONTOS models, the case features an optimized ergonomic design, giving the wearer an incredible feeling of comfort.
The crown features a grooved handle that makes it easy to use and guarantees an extraordinary tactility that contributes to increasing the overall quality.
The transparent case back gives mechanics enthusiasts a wonderful view of the ML143 automatic calibre.
Confirming the reputation of Maurice Lacroix to always offer a high quality-price ratio, the movement is embellished with a Côtes de Genève vertical motif, perlage and colimaçon decorations, while the rotor is decorated with a soleil effect.
The watch features a dark green nylon strap with the “M” logo and tone-on-tone stitching, enhancing the model’s elegant and contemporary look.
Owners of the watch can change the style according to their tastes thanks to the Easy Strap Exchange system, which allows you to easily replace the strap without the help of specific tools.
