Swiss Replica Watch: Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronograph Retro Replica Watch

The Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronograph Retro Replica Watch is a sport-styled watch that is a perfect daily driver and a great value too. It is powered by the Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement with Geneva stripes and perlage decoration that you can see through the exhibition case back. This is a reliable and robust movement that has been in use since the 1970’s. You can read about my experience here. At this event I was very impressed by the watches presented by Maurice Lacroix. Previously, I didn’t have much experience with their watches in person so this opportunity was eye-opening when it comes to the quality and craftsmanship they offer.

That’s forty years of testing and fine tuning. In addition to the central chronograph stop-seconds hand this movement has a 12, 6, 9 layout on the dial. At 12 you have the chrono minute counter up to 30 minutes, at 6 is a counter for the hours, and at 9 is a running seconds indication. This past Memorial Day weekend I attended an event hosted by Maurice Lacroix at the Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronograph Replica Watch expo in Las Vegas. I left Las Vegas with a new attitude toward the brand and a desire to add one of their watches to my collection. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long because I was selected as the raffle winner from the event and awarded my very own Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronograph Retro!

The strap is calfskin leather and what stands out is that there are no adjustment holes in the strap for the folding clasp. The clasp utilizes a “pinch” feature that locks the strap in place. This allows for infinite adjustability so you can really dial in the sizing for your wrist. This is a feature I had never seen on a watch until now and it works very well. Another element of the Maurice Lacroix Pontos Replica Watch  that works particularly well is the crown. It is slightly over-sized and has a radial grain pattern that enables a strong grip when in use. I have seen too many watches with a crown that was poorly designed and difficult to use. This made winding or even setting the watch annoying. So this was a welcome and refreshing aspect of the watch.

You can choose from two high-gloss, lacquered dials, black or white. When I say high-gloss, I mean it. The Maurice Lacroix Replica Watch dial looks smooth as glass. Both dial options have contrasting white or black chrono counters that have a matte circular grain pattern. You will also find a quick change date at 6 o’clock integrated into the hours counter. The hands are laser-cut and rhodium plated with bold blue-green lume at the tip. You also have matching hour markers with a green lume on the outside of the dial.
