By TLex Maurice Lacroix have previewed a handsome new vintage-style three hands version of the Pontos S Diver due for release at Basel. The 43mm Stainless steel watch case is equipped with an automatic helium escape valve at 9 o'clock, an inner rotational divers bezel, a domed Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides and a water-resistance of 600 m (60 ATM/2,000 ft).
For enhanced readability below the water, its black 'sunray' brushed dial is enhanced with applied hour-markers and Superluminova highlighted hands, while the minutes and seconds are red-rimmed. The watch is powered by the automatic ML 115 calibre with 26 jewels, 28,800 vib/h, 38-hour power reserve.
Functions include: hours, minutes, seconds and date (window at 6 o'clock). It is preseneted on a brown leather strap with a steel buckle or triple-row steel bracelet with a double safety folding clasp and additional NATO-type nylon strap. There is so much that appeals to about this watch, its almost perfect. However to have achieved perfection the crown should have been moved to 4 o'clock. Still a cracking watch though!
