Maurice Lacroix Aikon Bronze Watch Review
Saturday - 16 September 2017
Dressed in bronze, the new Maurice Lacroix Aikon is the epitome of luxury fit for the most lavish occasion. Limited to 388 pieces, the unique instrument truly plays the role of exclusivity and grandeur with the soft bronze hues that create a stylistic, sensual design to attach to the wrist; a timepiece that will certainly call for attention.
The bronzed distressed case is guaranteed to change colour overtime adapting to the owners lifestyle. The 44mm case will age beautifully creating a unique patination tailored to the wearer; a unique feature that makes each watch take on a new, individual aesthetic. Complimenting the case perfectly is the smoke effect dial with grows darker from the centre enhancing the horizontal lines. Both the dial and case work in harmony with their charming aged character.
To reinforce the luxurious aesthetic the hour and minute hands are 4N gold plated. Not to forget practicality the hands are filled with SuperLuminova for legibility in restricted lighting. The hour indices are also 4N gold plated that light up to aid readability in the dark. At 3 o’clock the white date display is easily read at a glance contrasting against the bronze gradient dial. To complete the essence of opulence the bronze vintage calf leather strap steps up to the occasion featuring Maurice Lacroix’s signature ‘M’ logo and a matching bronze pin buckle.
Powered by a high precision quartz movement the device is convenient and functional as the wearer does not have to remember to wind the watch. The new addition to the iconic collection certainly lives up to their slogan ‘create your own Aikon’ allowing for wearers to express their individuality and create a unique design as the case naturally fades overtime. The fine luxury timepiece balances both a vintage charm with modern tastes for the contemporary gent!
