Sometimes in life we are overwhelmed with too much information. The excessive often gets in the way of the vital. The accomplished design of the Pontos Date FULL BLACK provides the hour, minutes, central seconds and date and nothing else. It does not confuse or overburden the wearer. Its minimalist depiction of time is an asset in a noisy world.
The black PVD case is sandblasted with a semi-matt appearance. Its monochrome appearance makes it co-ordinate with the most stylish of wardrobes. Each facet interfaces with light differently, enhancing owner enjoyment and reminding the wearer of the high-quality case construction. Measuring 40mm in diameter, the proportions are perfectly judged, ensuring widespread appeal.
Short case lugs sharply taper downwards, encouraging the strap to cosset the wrist in comfortable union.
The domed sapphire crystal, with anti-reflective coating on both sides, mitigates the risk of undue glare that could otherwise corrupt the clean appearance of the dial.
The black gold diamond-cut hour and minute hands feature luminous coating aiding legibility in poor light, courtesy of their mesmerising blue emission.
Applied diamond-cut indexes, again feature luminous coating. They contrast with the various tone-on-tone dial details including the minute track encircling the perimeter of the dial.
A date aperture resides above 6 o’clock. The white text against a black background provides contrast and excellent legibility. The expression of time is concise and subtle in character.
The alluring aesthetics are completed with the discreet crown which neatly hugs the caseband and is protected by the adjacent crown guards.
Whilst the Pontos Date FULL BLACK has a nocturnal-like appearance, those individuals who prefer to embrace light may well seek the charms of a sun-brushed dial presented in a light grey.
This model shares the same architecture as the Pontos Date FULL BLACK but exhibits a very different character, courtesy of its shiny rhodium-plated applied indexes and the blue central seconds hand.
Two options are available with this dial, namely, a choice of calfskin leather strap or a stylish metal bracelet.
