Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green Limited Edition Watch Review
Monday - 16 November 2020
Exclusive to Jura Watches, the new limited edition Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green watch delivers outstanding performance, functionality, and elegance with a breathtaking green Clous de Paris dial and the iconic six-arm Aikon bezel. Limited to only a select number of pieces, the new release is entirely exclusive to Jura Watches and is only available on our website and in our stores while stocks last.
Since its release in 2016, the Maurice Lacroix Aikon collection has remained one of the brand’s most important lines inspired by an iconic timepiece from the Swiss watch manufacturer’s history. The Calypso, a sporty, quartz watch from the 1990’s was pivotal to the brand’s early success and found itself widely popular with trendsetting, style conscious gentlemen looking for luxury aesthetic and high precision movements. Today’s Aikon, including the new Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green Limited Edition, carries the same design codes as its historic predecessor including the legendary integrated case, ratcheted bezel and flat sapphire crystal glass alongside new contemporary technologies for modern tastes.
There was a time, not so long ago, that green was a rare colour to find on the dial of a watch, but 2020 proves otherwise with some of the world’s biggest watch brands launching their own interpretations of a luxury green timepiece. From stunning green-faced Breitling Premiers to green IWC Portugieser watches, Longines HydroConquests and Oris Aquis Divers, the colour green has become a staple in the industry, and without missing a beat, Maurice Lacroix have shadowed the trend with their own green-dialled Maurice Lacroix Aikon.
The stunning centrepiece dial of the Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green Limited Edition is designed in Clous de Paris style, a traditional embossing technique that results in small, square knobs encompassing the face delivering an exquisite texture and finish. White Superluminova treated hands and rhodium plated indexes provide optimal legibility in all lighting while the addition of the sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment assists further with readability and provides unbeatable scratch resistance.
Measuring to 42mm in size, the Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green Limited Edition is presented in stunning stainless steel and features the iconic Aikon six-arm fixed bezel, a screw in crown and a breathtaking integrated stainless steel bracelet with butterfly clasp. The 200 metre water resistant case houses the ML115 automatic winding movement, a Swiss made calibre based on the legendary Sellita SW200-1, and delivers central hands for hours, minutes and seconds, a date window at 3 o’ clock and a power reserve of 38 hours. Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can witness the sun brushed rotor decorated in vertical Côtes de Genève.
Retailing at £1,490, the Maurice Lacroix Aikon Green Limited Edition is available exclusively on the Jura Watches website here.
