March 27. 2019 - by Nils Rau

Maurice Lacroix is launching new models for the Aikon series parallel to this year's Baselworld. The elegant watches will be available in new diameters and in addition to this, the Swiss manufacturer is also adding a sporty, elegant Diver version to its collection! Read on and get to know all the new products.


New dial for the Aikon Automatic 42

The Aikon is the most sporty collection of the Swiss manufacturer Maurice Lacroix: The watches have a sporty yet elegant appearance and can be worn with jeans and T-shirt as well as with the finest suits. Maurice Lacroix has now given the 42 millimetre Aikon a new dial: An anthracite dial with gold-coloured indices enriches the previous dial options of black, blue and white. Depending on the incidence of light on the Clous-de-Paris guilloché, the grey has a pleasant brown tint in its natural state. Maurice Lacroix uses the gold-coloured indices to discreetly and skillfully implement the current gold trend.

Aikon for him and her: 39 and 35 millimetres

In addition, two new diameters will be added to the 42 millimetre Aikon. From now on, the wristwatch will also be available in 39 and 35 millimetre sizes. The 35 millimetre version should be ideal for women, while the 39 millimetre Aikon should be equally interesting for both sexes. The Aikon is somewhat smaller due to its shape.

Diving with the Aikon Venturer 43mm

The Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer is completely new. The 43 millimetre diver's watch flatters the wrist and feels about two millimetres smaller due to the comparatively low overall height. The water resistance of 30 bar or 300 meters makes the watch a full-blooded diver and also allows deep dives. Instead of the stainless steel bezel of the conventional Aikon models, the Venturer has a ceramic bezel that can be turned on one side according to its use as a diver's watch.

The watch comes with two bracelets: the usual delicate stainless steel bracelet and a comfortable rubber strap. Thanks to the quick-change system, the straps can be changed in no time at all and without tools.

Aikon Skeleton Manufacture 45 with in-house calibre

With the Aikon Skeleton Manufacture 45, Maurice Lacroix presented a skeleton watch with manufacturer's caliber. The diameter is 45 millimetres, which sounds large at first, but is smaller in nature due to the shape of the case and the black PVD coating. With the black coating, Maurice Lacroix also cleverly draws attention to the movement's interior. It's nice that parts of the caliber - matching the case - are also in black. The calfskin strap has a textile structure. All in all, the Aikon Skeleton is quite a good throw, which promises variety at the wrist and is absolutely suitable for everyday use due to its stealth style.

Aikon Automatic Mercury 44: Playing with gravity

Maurice Lacroix presents a novelty in the world of watchmaking with the Aikon Automatic Mercury 44: when the watch is not tilted to the face to read the time, all three hands of the watch fall to 12 o'clock. As soon as the watch is returned to an upright position, the hands fall back to the correct time. The mechanism behind the impressive play of the hands can be observed without removing the watch thanks to the skeleton dial.

Aikon Chronograph with new colours

Maurice Lacroix has also introduced two new versions of the chronograph: Firstly, the 44 millimetre model will now also be available with black totalisers on a white dial. Until now, the watch was only available with blue subdials.

In addition, 500 pieces of the Aikon Automatic Chronograph 44mm Limited Edition will be available. This limited edition Aikon chronograph features blue totalisers on a white dial and features red hands on the subsidiary dials, which are harmoniously picked up by the contrasting stitching of the blue calfskin strap in the same colour.
