First Look…Baselworld 2014…
Maurice Lacroix gives its Pontos S chronograph some aggressive styling attributes and a size upgrade, and calls it “Supercharged”. I like it. These two new models in the Pontos range step up 5mm from the Pontos S and the Pontos S Extreme‘s 43mm case. The red detailing with steel case is a familiar aesthetic, but the yellow, paired with a black PVD case, is a new color-set for the Pontos S line. Most striking, though, is the knurled chrono pushers and the bezel edge — a great looking detail element that really defines this watch in my book. Price is TBD.
Maurice Lacroix Supercharged Pontos S
48mm steel or black PVD-finished steel case, automatic mechanical movement (ETA)
The ETA Valgranges-based caliber is itself a substantial 37+mm in diameter, filling space in the Supercharged 48mm case size.
