Maurice Lacroix tweaks its Pontos Chronograph 43mm with four new references that expand the collection’s high-value chronograph options with new sun-brushed black or gunmetal grey dial hues.

The latest Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronograph 43mm offers a choice of black or gun metal dials.

These debuts echo the existing blue-dialed Pontos Chronograph with Arabic numerals and partially open-worked hands.

Look for additional SuperLuminova on the central chronograph hand as well, matching the enhanced luminescence of the hands. Maurice Lacroix has also added a color-coordinated date display disc to the 12-hour chronograph register at 6 o’clock.

Maurice Lacroix’s automatic ETA-based ML112 caliber, visible through the watch’s caseback, is finished with Côtes de Genève and circular graining, while the rotor is embellished with vertical Côtes de Genève and sun brushing.

The new models can be paired with a leather strap or a three-row steel bracelet. 

Finally, to echo its Aikon models, the new Pontos Chronograph 43mm now features the brand’s Easy Strap Exchange System, which allows a quick strap/bracelet swap if desired.

Maurice Lacroix now packages it all its watches with the same material it uses for its eco-friendly Aikon #tide collection. This means the new series is boxed with packaging made of recycled ocean-bound waste bottles. The watchmaker says it takes thirty-four bottles to make each watch box, which means thirty-four fewer bottles polluting the sea.

Prices:  $3,250 (steel bracelet) and $3,200 (leather strap).
