New Pontos Watches by Maurice Lacroix: Succinct Artwork for Your Wrist

The Pontos collection comprises several vintage design elements blending with a sporty chic vibe. The collection boasts the well-established name Maurice Lacroix through its signature elegance and classic crafting. The brand itself has been in existence since its creation in 1975 as Desco von Schulthess, manufactured timepieces at state-of-the-art workshops in Siagnelégier. The company became a bridge for the Swiss watch brands and the rest of the globe. The company purchased Queloz S.A., a manufacturing plant of watch cases in the same place. Later, in 2006, the brand produced its first in-house movement with the calibre ML-106. Maurice Lacroix has several collections like the Masterpiece Gravity with exposed silicon escapement, the AIKON, Les Classiques, Pontos, and Fiaba. Read on to learn more about the Pontos collection by Maurice Lacroix.
