Watch – Pontos S Extreme
The Pontos S Extreme impresses from the very first glance. With its assured, selfconfident, masculine look and sporty image, it is available in three different colors. Its automatic threecounter chronograph mechanism follows the rhythm of the oscillations of its ML112 caliber. Propelled into the innovative and high-tech world of fine watchmaking by its technical features, the special alloy used for these Maurice Lacroix timepieces reinforces the durability and makes the watches light weight. Powerlite®. Exclusive to Maurice Lacroix, the material from which the Postos S Extreme watch case (both bezel and case middle) is made is an alloy of five elements: aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium and ceramic. The crown and the push-buttons are made exclusively of titanium. The robustness, durability and also the light weight of this timepiece are irreproachable. Two limited editions models are available in, blue or khaki through the anodization process. A treatment used on metal surfaces tried and tested in the automotive industry, as well as aeronautics and architecture, anodization is an electrolytic chemical process through which color pigments are inserted directly into the pores of the material concerned.
When modified in this way the structure of the metal is reinforced. The Pontos S Extreme in black has a vibrant, sporty elegance that is strikingly contemporary. Designed by Henrik Fisker, who created many of the most emblematic BMW and Aston Martin cars, it embodies the power and determination of instruments that are authentic, mechanically irreproachable and envied by all. Another distinguishing feature of the Pontos S Extreme is a patent-pending mechanism which regulates time duration through the crown: linked to the chronograph’s push-button, the mechanism activates a rotating bezel located inside the watch case to protect it from unintentional movement. The three counters occupy their positions on the dial in well-balanced harmony. Ensuirng perfect readability, the black sandblasted dial is enhanced by hands, applied indexes and a rotating bezel that are all highlighted with luminescent material. A NATO strap adds the final touch to a watch whose strong character is matched only by its exceptional energy.
