Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Diver Vintage Dial Closeup

Maurice Lacroix will be introducing this very nice Pontos S Diver in 2013.  It is one of two new models to join the brand’s Pontos collection along with some design tweaks to existing Chronograph and Day/Date models.  The watch  has a vintage touch while also being respectably spec’d for a dive watch at 600m.

The 43mm stainless steel case has a vertical-brushed finish in the middle and on the side-lugs, with polished bezel and lug facets.  The watch has an internal rotating bezel made of aluminum with sandblasted finish.  Helium escape valve at 9 o’clock.  Applied indexes and hands with Superluminova.  The hands are further distinguished by their red-accents.

There will be both black and opaline dials offered.  Comes on a leather strap in choice of colors or bracelet, and also an extra NATO strap is included — a nice add-on.  I’m not sure where ML sources their calibers from — this one looks to be a fairly standard Swiss automatic.

No word yet on price, but those who like the style of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea diver ($12,500) or the Longines Legend diver (part of the brand’s superb Heritage collection) might want to also consider this new one from Maurice Lacroix.
