Maurice Lacroix revisits its Pontos S Diver, reinventing the dive watch with a sharp-looking new dial sporting Boulder index and minute markings, improved luminosity and a raised date frame. In addition, Maurice Lacroix offers a bronze-cased version, a first for the collection.

The Swiss watchmaker released its first generation Pontos S Diver in 2013 but discontinued it a few years later as it ramped up production of its Hot Icon collection to meet demand.

Along with the updated 42mm watch, Maurice Lacroix enhances the visibility of the dial with new angled hour and minute hands, both illuminated with SuperLumiNova.

On the minute side, you will now see a border in contrasting color with the dial. The hour indicators retain their generous luminescent treatment.

Maurice Lacroix also retains the watch’s useful internal rotating bezel for indicating elapsed time, adjusted using the crown at the 2 o’clock position. The second crown at the 3 o’clock position is used to adjust the time, and date, and to wind the automatic ML115 movement. All models are water-resistant to 300 meters.

Bronze too

As mentioned, Maurice Lacroix is ​​offering a bronze version of the watch in addition to the steel model. While the regular production steel model is available with a black-grained or white lacquer dial option, the bronze model is limited to 500 pieces and is paired with a blue-grained dial.

The bronze version is supplied with two straps, one in dark blue leather and the other in dark blue rubber. Maurice Lacroix offers the steel models with three matching straps: an M-branded fabric strap and two rubber straps.

Finally, Maurice Lacroix has equipped the new Pontos S Diver with the company’s Easy Strap Exchange System that allows the wearer to quickly swap straps without the need for tools.

Price: $2,050 (steel) and $2,600 (bronze).
