Maurice Lacroix reinforced the Pontos Chronographe collection with the launch of two models asserting their sporting temperament in 2009. These timepieces bear the character of the Pontos Chronographe range and remain loyal to the codes of the Pontos collection: design, contemporary style and purity.
In this sports version, the range becomes an archetype by refusing any compromise. The Pontos Chronographe Sport Full Black occupies the field in the same way as the sportsmen and women who have the caliber to impose themselves right from the starting line.
Sculptural and physically unmistakable, it is shaped to declare its outstanding features. First, is its black color, which is uniform from every angle and for all textures. The timepiece exploits black in all registers and hues to give more body to its solid volumes, and uses textures and finishes that enhance its key attributes.
From the case to the buckle, blackened by an innovative ceramic coating, from the hands to the dial and strap, all is black. Even the additional function counters make no concessions and blend tone on tone into the whole. For the purposes of functionality, the hands and the flange are in SuperLumiNova, guaranteeing optimal legibility.
The sports qualities of the timepiece call for unfinished surfaces and coarse finishes. The steel case is sanded to give a grain that complements the tactile quality of the profiled leather of the singularly sporty strap.
A variation of the Pontos Chronographe series launched in 2004, the Pontos Chronographe Sport Full Black features an automatic movement based on the Valjoux 7750 caliber, recognized for its precision and reliability. It has a chronograph with 30-minute and 12-hour counters, a small seconds display, a date display and a tachymeter on the outer ring.
