We’ve been rather popular this month, with aBlogtoWatch giving away a $4,400 Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Chronograph watch. You have just a few more days to enter for a chance to win it (here) before time runs out…
November is an exciting month on aBlogtoWatch because one of you will win a Maurice Lacroix Pontos S chronograph watch (aBlogtoWatch hands-on here). A wonderfully modern mechanical sport watch, the Pontos S comes in a durable 43mm wide steel case and is water resistant to 200 meters…
After meeting with Maurice Lacroix at Baselworld 2013, I walked away very impressed with the new Pontos S Diver. I was excited to see their new three-hand dive watch as I knew it was going to be introduced at the show. You see, I am among the many people in the world who absolutely loves dive watches but haven’t quite mustered the time to… you know… actually dive.
Powerlite is a neat sounding name for an industrial alloy that Maurice Lacroix borrowed for their new Pontos S Extreme collection. I personally can’t attest to the “extreme” nature of the material (or watch), but it is an interesting metal that offers a pleasant tactile experience and light feel. It also apparently comes in blue. We go hands-on with a Maurice Lacroix’s new sporty chronograph collection for 2013.
Maurice Lacroix has started releasing information about their upcoming Baselworld 2013 collection. They will be debuting two watches each week leading up to the start of BaselWorld. This week kicks off with two new models within their very successful Pontos range of elegant but sporty automatic chronographs. The Pontos is arguably Maurice Lacroix’s most famous model, and rightfully so as they have managed to design a watch that looks distinctive without being especially boisterous or ostentatious.
The most impressive new Maurice Lacriox watch this year is easily the Pontos S Diver. I think Maurice Lacriox eventually dropped the “Diver” part of the name. Who knows why – I am still going to call it the “Diver.” I first discussed the Pontos S when debuting it to the world here. Now with a hands-on look at the final versions I can once again say “I like it.”
A few months ago I got to visit the Maurice Lacroix watch manufacture in Saignelégier, Switzerland. No, I still can’t pronounce the name of the city, but the building itself was surprisingly modern and well-designed. While relatively new, Maurice Lacroix as a brand is also pretty new in the scheme of other Swiss watches in […]
A few months ago while with Maurice Lacroix at their manufacture I spent time with them going over small details on the prototype versions of these new Pontos S dive watches. We looked at little things like the polishes on the rings around subsidiary chronograph dials, colors, strap choices and other details on the dials. […]
I am talking about this watch because people are going to notice it and wonder, “what is going on here?” Well nothing really fancy to be honest, aside from some engineering gear fun. While the concept of a clover and square shaped gear might be odd, it works. You can see in the video exactly […]
This is actually a very telling tale, and is not at all unique to Maurice Lacroix. Look closely and you get to see exactly what it is like being a brand ambassador for a Swiss watch brand. Here you have outgoing British golfer Justin Rose being courted by Maruice Lacriox to becoming a brand ambassador […]
