BASELWORLD 2016 NOVELTIES: PONTOS CHRONOGRAPH

The dial of a chronograph, by virtue of the quantity of information it presents, can potentially appear overwhelming. It is therefore the task of a skilled design team to create a watch which converses with the wearer simply, with clear and precise dialogue. Consistent with the reputation of the Pontos collection for succinct communication with the wearer, the new Pontos 43mm Chronograph imparts information in a user-friendly form.

The dial of a chronograph


Two chronograph registers are arranged along a north to south axis, a 30-minute subdial below noon and a 12-hour chronograph counter above 6 o'clock. The latter subdial incorporates a date display. A small second’s display is also presented at 9 o'clock.

 

Two chronograph registers


The elegantly sporty, Pontos 43mm Chronograph is equipped with an automatic mechanical movement, the ML 112.
