Swiss watch maker Maurice Lacroix unveils Pontos S Regatta, an ocean race inspired timepiece that comes in an eye catching 45mm diameter case. It is made from cutting-edge forged carbon, proving light and strong. The complex construction process results in an interesting aesthetic, compromising of grey and black elements which deliver an eye-catching appearance. The hour and minutes are indicated with rhodium plated, faceted hands featuring luminescent coating, aiding visibility in restricted light. The minute hand features a white tip whilst the red central chronograph seconds hand is tipped in vibrant orange.
Another notable difference in the appearance of the Pontos S Regatta is the large, arcing aperture below noon, revealing numbers descending from 10. Prior to the start of a sailing regatta, a 10 minute audible signal is sounded and flags are waved to warn competitors to prepare for the impending race. At this point the push piece at 2 o’clock is pressed to actuate the countdown sequence on the dial.
Pushing and turning the crown at 2 o’clock allows the wearer to adjust the inner rotating bezel. Located in the centre of the crown is a push piece for starting and stopping the countdown function. Adjacent the applied indexes, is a scale calibrated for knots, allowing the speed over a given distance to be ascertained by the wearer. Despite the numerous functions of the Pontos S Regatta, it remains very user-friendly with a clear and highly legible display. All the features of this timepiece prove intuitive to use.
The central area of the dial is silver with a sandblasted finish which provides a fascinating texture to the surface. The hour track is snailed and presented in a contrasting black shade. A black rubber strap, presented on a black PVD buckle, completes the handsome ensemble and proves very practical as the sea’s spray lashes down on the fierce competitor.
