Maurice Lacroix

Aikon Automatic Chronograph

“Fine Watch Club” Edition

Limited to 24 pieces

 

In this special 24-piece limited edition, Maurice Lacroix has created a unique colour combination for the Fine Watch Club members, pairing an anthracite dial with blued hands. With dynamic angles and distinct polishing and satin-brushing, the AIKON Automatic Chronograph “Fine Watch Club” Edition has a real presence on the wrist thanks to its 44mm diameter, meticulous detail and sheer energy. This limited edition comes with an interchangeable strap system, so you can easily switch between a steel bracelet or leather strap with carbon-print and blue stitching.

 

The dial of the AIKON Automatic Chronograph “Fine Watch Club” Edition bears the raised AIKON Automatic Chronograph pattern: chequered, composed of regular squares, presented here in anthracite, offset with blue hands, white applied hour markers and white counters. The strong, angular, bevelled design catches the light to perfection. The elegant, energetic curves of the steel case express the modern, masculine feel that Maurice Lacroix has injected into the models. The edges of the bezel are polished, as are its six arms, an AIKON signature.

 

The AIKON Automatic Chronograph’s bold proportions also result from the use of an automatic chronograph calibre of proven quality. The screwed caseback and push pieces add to the aesthetics of the timepiece, as well as providing water-resistance to 200 metres. The AIKON Automatic Chronograph Fine Watch Club Edition uses Maurice Lacroix’s quick strap change system.

 

Strong and masculine without being excessively detailed or large, the AIKON Automatic Chronograph Fine Watch Club Edition is a resolutely modern timepiece with a unique presence.

 

THE AIKON SPIRIT

 

AIKON Automatic watches are descendants of the Maurice Lacroix Calypso. This steel watch was one of the brand’s iconic models in the 1980s and ‘90s and bore the same design codes that live on in the current AIKON models, such as the integrated case, the six-arm bezel surrounding a flat sapphire crystal and the strap marked with an applique M logo.
