MAURICE LACROIX Pontos S Diver MOVEMBER

By TLex Maurice Lacroix will, for the second consecutive year, support Movember, a leading global men’s health charity which raises vital funds and awareness for the often-ignored issues of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.



The luxury Swiss watch brand will create an extensive network of Mo’rice Lacroix teams all around the world with its ambassadors leading the way and spreading the good word.



Maurice Lacroix have created two 14 piece Limited Editions of their popular Pontos S DIVER. The first 14 pieces will feature an orange Movember ‘stache on the dial and will reward the greatest fundraisers of each national Mo’rice Lacroix team.



The second series of 14 timepieces will feature a white tash on the dial and will be sold exclusively at mauricelacroix.com. Maurice Lacroix will donate all benefits of the sale to the Movember Foundation.



Well, if you’re gonna have dot 'a' dash (tash) on your on dive watch, it might as well be an orange one, so that one gets my vote. However there is a third alternative.



Each year one man, chosen from the combined list of winners all over the world, is crowned international Man of Movember, becoming the face of the campaign.



To reward this ultimate Movember ambassador, Maurice Lacroix has created an Electric Blue duo version of the Pontos S Diver. Only two pieces will be manufactured and the second piece will be gifted to Maurice Lacroix ambassador and Movember CEO, Adam Garone.



Facial hair and color aside the watches are in the same as the regular Pontos S Diver every respect - with a 43mm Stainless steel case featuring a sandblasted aluminum turning scale to match the dial finish, a vertically brushed mid-case and side lugs, with a polished bezel and facet on lugs.



Kicking off with an impressive 600 meters of water-resistance, divers features of the Pontos S Diver include: an automatic Helium Escape Valve positioned at 9 o'clock, an engraved screw-down caseback and a domed Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.



They are powered by a mechanical automatic movement, the caliber ML115 with 26 jewels, 2628,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hz, and a power reserve of 38 hours. It has been adjusted to 3 positions after full winding and after 24 hours. It is decorated with rhodium-plating. Functions include: hours, minutes, seconds indicated by central hands and as date (aperture at 6 o’clock)



The dials are clean and simple - no Arabic numerals, just well sized hour markers and easily distinguishable minute and second hands. The ‘Movember ‘stache’ motif can be seen in either orange or white at 6 o’clock.



The watches come with either a very cool ‘Movember’ embossed genuine leather NATO strap or a robust three-link Stainless steel bracelet.
