For gent’s average wrist, this Maurice Lacroix PT6188-SS001-130 is considerably a large size, which just like its other steel on leather variants, has an overall weighs of around 122 grams. Its nicely sculpted round case that is made of premium grade stainless steel and finished in fine brush and high polish has a diameter of 43mm and approximately 15.7mm thick. Meanwhile, its rich looking Black bracelet that is made of genuine alligator leather and comes equipped with a deployant buckle clasp with twin push-button safety is tapers from 21 mm to 17 mm wide.

Caseback. Allowing you to take a glance at the caliber ML-112 housed inside, the back of this luxury wrist watch features a rounded sapphire display on its center. Its steel part is engraved with markings that inform some of its general information such as material, water resistance, and the serial numbering, and it is secured by 5 screws. And typical to Pontos, at its case’s right hand side, there are two handy push-pieces for its chronograph functions that retract into the case middle, in which, in between, lays a 6.7mm pull-and-push crown that is fluted in radial pattern, and decorated with that famous “M” hallmarking atop.

Upfront, the sapphire crystal that shields this ML premium timepiece’s face is domed, has a better scratch resistance compared to that one at the caseback, and is further enhanced with an anti-reflective coating. The dial itself is such a pleasure as well. It comes with a bright Silver grained White background that nicely fashioned with a well balanced layout in contemporary style, and has an appreciable read-ability regardless day or night.

Dial: Zoom. On this eye-catching Silvered dial, there are faceted baton-shaped steel hour and minute hands that are tipped with “BGW9” SuperLuminova (Blue Lume), a slim central sweep seconds hand, and a set of applique stick hour markers with fluorescent materials. Furthermore, there are three framed subsidiary for the 30-minute counter, 12-hour counter, and small seconds that are situated at 12, 6, and 9 o’clock positions respectively. These subdials feature luminous tipped silver-tone hands, and painted Black markers atop of their concentric circular guilloché patterned Silver background. A legible date aperture is situated within the subsidiary at six. The hallmarking: applied “M”, along with painted Black “Maurice Lacroix” and “Chronographe” are situated at the 3 o’clock position. And, along the Silvered inner bezel, there are painted Black stick and Arabic markers for easy reference --with a scale of 1/4 a second.

Speaking of the movement, the caliber ML112 housed by this chronograph automatic watch is not particularly an exclusive (manufacture) movement. This cams integrated chronograph is an ETA 7750 based, which is personalized by Maurice Lacroix to comply with their own preference --which mostly, aesthetic. Typical to Valjoux 7750 based caliber, the ML-112 is “fairly loud”, and this 25 jewels movement is winding at a single direction. This calibre is beating at 28,800 alterations per hour, and when fully wound, it provides 46 hours of power reserve. Maurice Lacroix ML112 is not a chronometer grade, and as far as we know, this 13¼ lignes movement is rated to perform in between the elaboré and top grade of the original ETA 7750.

Anyway, for all of its quality offerings, this gent’s steel on Black leather Silver dial Maurice Lacroix Pontos Chronographe PT6188-SS001-130 "three hands, date" chronograph automatic watch is reasonably offered at an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $4,200.00.
