The Aikon is an important piece for Maurice Lacroix. The recognizable design will be an important factor in making Maurice Lacroix models more streamlined and not just an overload of references in the coming years. And this Maurice Lacroix Aikon Bronze will definitely help in this venture.

An obvious plus being the 44-millimeter bronze case, a material that is getting more and more popular amongst watch brands. With the passage of time the case color of the Aikon Bronze will evolve and age. The result of this dynamic interaction is the remarkable patina, making each watch unique. Truly and not just in the marketing sense of the word.

The Maurice Lacroix Aikon Bronze is limited to 388 pieces

The Aikon Bronze has a smoke-effect dial adorned with horizontal lines spanning its surface. The aged appearance of the dial complements the patina (later) found on the case. And yes, the dial is clearly ‘inspired’ by the Patek Philippe Nautilus dial. But why not, diver watches also clearly use elements of the Rolex Submariner to pimp their watches.

The hour and minute hands on the dial are 4N gold plated and lined with super-luminova. Furthermore, there is a central sweep seconds hand and date display that complete the basic functions.

This Maurice Lacroix Aikon Bronze comes on a vintage calf leather strap, which complements the aged look of the watch after wearing it for some time. Quite a good-looking watch, but with a price of plus 1k for a quartz it is not a very good deal. Even though it is limited to 388 pieces.
