The case for the Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Regatta is an advanced in-house made forged carbon composite material case This watch is definitely notable for the special purpose of being a regatta tiger, but a forged carbon case is also a unique technical engineering attribute only found on a few other models made by very high-level watchmaker houses (Audemars Piquet for example).
The design of the case and pushers is typical to the Pontos collection, and it is no different for this Pontos S Regatta model. However, the appearance is totally different from the other Pontos models due to the aforementioned carbon composite material and the black dial with contrasting big silvery white subdial. As always, the interesting part of watches is mainly within the details. Maurice Lacroix did a great effort to give the Pontos S Regatta a lot of these details. It really is a stunning watch when looked at closely in person. Yet it is understated in a refined way. Look at the grain on the black part of the dial and the texture on the silvery white inner dial. The hour markers and hands are diamond cut and polished which allows them to play with light due to the edges. The use of red, white, blue and yellow for markers, scales, regatta disc and second hand are nice and contrasting enough to make it a very readable and therefore usable watch. Maurice Lacroix applied Super Lumi Nova to the hands and dial to enhance readability in low light conditions.
How the countdown function works:
The large arcing aperture in the dial of the Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Regatta is positioned from 10 to 2 o’clock. Below noon is a little black triangular pointer to follow the countdown, which is presented by the indicator disk divided into 15 segments moving under the dial. The watch has a crown at 2 o’clock to set the inner rotating bezel, with a pusher for start/stop, and one pusher at 4 o’clock for reset.
After a reset, the disk shows 8-9-Ready in white figures on a blue background, with the pointer at Ready (10 minutes). When the chronograph is activated at the first gunshot, the countdown starts and the red sweep hand (with an orange tip) is set in motion counting the seconds. The indicator disk runs continuously clockwise, changing colors after 5 minutes to white figures on a red background.
At the final gunshot, the indicator disk shows Race-S-1-2 with the pointer at S (Start).
