Maurice Lacroix adds new hues to its recently updated Pontos Day Date, enhancing the dial’s color contrasts, and now sells the watch in eco-friendly packaging.
The independent Swiss watchmaker recently added newly facetted (and applied) markers and hands to the popular (and affordable) 41mm Day/Date model.
The dial offers clearer contrasts than previous editions, especially with the new raised minute track that clearly delineates the dial indicators. The minute track, no longer along the edge of the dial, sits inside the hour track and creates a new, modern appearance. The track is slightly recessed and is set with clean markings and contrasting hues to enhance visibility.
As the watch’s name indicates, you’ll find a date and a day window, each deeper than you might expect. Maurice Lacroix teams the new dial layout with a choice of three new dial colors: black, silver and anthracite. All three are finished with a sunray motif and silver or golden-toned hands and indexes.
Maurice Lacroix brushes and polishes the stainless case 41mm case, which holds an automatic ML143 Sellita-based caliber, visible via the exhibition caseback. The watchmaker finishes the movement with Côtes de Genève while the rotor features vertical Côtes de Genève and sun brushing.
To attach the new watches to the wrist, Maurice Lacroix provides a choice of a three-row stainless steel bracelet or black leather strap, the latter of which sports the company’s M-logo. And of course you’ll be able to swap straps using the firm’s own Easy Strap Exchange System.
Finally, these newest Maurice Lacroix Pontos Day Date 41mm debuts arrive in new packaging made of recycled ocean-bound waste, echoing the material used to create the full Maurice Lacroix Aikon #tide watch series.
Price: Starting at $2,050 (strap) and $2,100 (steel bracelet).
