Maurice Lacroix Presents The Lidija Lijic X Pontos S Diver: Dare To Discover


The Lidija Lijic X Pontos S Diver also comes in a myriad of different colours

Maurice Lacroix has officially launched the Pontos S Diver, a watch that’s not afraid of getting its hair wet. Revisiting the first generation model of 2013, the Jura-based brand has created a divers’ watch incorporating numerous enhancements while still retaining the spirit of the inaugural model, especially its iconic design.Pontos

During the development phase, the Swiss marque turned to ML Crew member Lidija Lijic, a world champion freediver who holds the record for staying underwater for 5 minutes and 43 seconds. Lidija inhabits a world of extremes, exploring the limits of human performance, which made her the ideal person to put the watch through its paces.

The First Diver

Ten years ago, Maurice Lacroix released its first generation Pontos S Diver. However, a few years later, the Jura-based brand ceased producing the model in order to focus its attention on making the highly successful AIKON. Subsequently, the company received numerous requests for the divers’ watch to be reissued.Pontos

Enter the Lidija Lijic X Pontos S Diver. Housed in a 42mm case, the watch is available in a choice of stainless steel or, for the first time, bronze. The hour and minute hands are faceted and lined with Super-LumiNova. Moreover, the minute hand is endued with a coloured border.

Unique Design

The hours are denoted with applied indexes and, once again, lined with luminescent treatment. Subtle changes to the original dial design include making the indexes and minute markings crisper and more prominent.Pontos

On top of that, the date is also framed with a raised border, making it stand out from the rest of the dial. Each detail is optimised to deliver peerless readability. A dedicated crown, positioned at 2 o’clock, provides the wearer with the means to adjust the internal rotating bezel.

Featuring a count-up scale, the rotating bezel is a useful way of measuring the elapsed time spent underwater. The watch also features a centre seconds hand and a date display at 6 o’clock. A second crown, located at 3 o’clock, adjusts the various indications and can also be used to manually wind the movement.Pontos

This latest Pontos S Diver is offered in a number of variants. Steel models come with a choice of black grained or white lacquered dial options. The bronze model, limited to just 500 pieces, is paired with a sumptuous blue grained dial.Pontos
