Did you appreciate the 2016 Aikon, but feel that its quartz movement left you with a sense that something was missing ? You’ll be pleased to know it has now at last been introduced in an automatic version. One of the chief assets of this casual chic heir to the 1990s Calypso model is undoubtedly its lug-free ‘integrated’ case, that has become extremely trendy thanks to certain star models by prestigious brands. But while the Aikon Automatic thus definitely has a lot going for it, the price tag remains extremely reasonable for such a beautifully finished timepiece. A dial adorned with the Clous de Paris hobnail pattern ; polished rider-tabs on a brushed bezel ; and applied beveled baton-type hour-markers will all catch your eye as a devotee of Fine Watchmaking. On the case-back side, the sapphire crystal will enable you to admire the circular-grained movement including its oscillating weight enhanced with vertical Côtes de Genève. Thus won over by what you see, all you will then need to do is choose between a silver-toned, anthracite or blue dial. And when it comes to the leather strap or steel bracelet, why not have them both, since the new EasyChange system means they can be easily swapped ? The Aikon Automatic also comes in 44mm chronograph and 45mm skeleton versions.
