Are classical and contemporary two conflicting concepts ? Perhaps not really in light of the new Aikon Automatic, which stylishly reconciles the best of both worlds. A little more than two years after the launch of the Aikon Quartz, a modern version of the famous Calypso watch launched by Maurice Lacroix in the 1990s, the Aikon is now reinventing itself in an automatic version based on a simple yet detail-rich aesthetic characteristic of timeless watches. As far as its look is concerned, the Aikon Automatic features a steel case with a reasonable 39mm diameter alternating between curves and sharp angles that brand enthusiasts will immediately recognize thanks to the six rider-tabs adorning the bezel. For perfect wearer comfort, the case flows smoothly into a steel bracelet equipped with the Easy Change system. The blue dial also features the line’s distinctive aesthetic codes expressed through a a fine Clous de Paris hobnail guilloché pattern. A beautiful composition echoed by the refined finishes of the automatic movement, notably the oscillating weight adorned with vertical Côtes de Genève.
