Have you already felt that strange sense of pride, coupled with a compulsive urge to observe your wrist every minute of the day, without really wanting to check the time ? Although wellknown among watch collectors, this syndrome is not confined to owners of a few rare and incredibly expensive timepieces. It is above all the expression of impeccable design and of immediately perceptible true quality – exactly like that exuded by the new Aikon Automatic by Maurice Lacroix. This bronze model unites all the ingredients of a best-seller, including powerful masculine architecture, a vibrant on-trend material and noble colors. Yet it is doubtless the play on light and textures that makes this watch so appealing. The delicate contrast between satin-brushed and polished surfaces on the case echoes the square-shaped depth effects of the dial and its applied hour-markers. The same goes for the bezel adorned with six rider-tabs, the Aikon signature feature adding a further elegantly virile touch. A real horological success at an affordable price, that will delight exactly five hundred people worldwide and become a lasting obsession.
