Building on that success, the Aikon range is ever growing. This extension starts with a one-off timepiece, which is a harbinger of the Aikons to come. For Only Watch 2017, Maurice Lacroix introduces the Aikon Automatic Chronograph. Black and charcoal gray thanks to the extensive use of PVD coating, sprinkled with bright yellow highlights, which is the 2017 Only Watch color theme, its 45- mm stainless case shows both matte and polished surfaces. It houses Maurice Lacroix calibre ML157, an 2-counter automatic chronograph movement with date. With a 48-hour power reserve, it shows careful finishings, such as perlage or Côtes de Genève. The latter are especially visible since they are all over the movement’s backside and rotor. The square pattern on its dial outlines is in- tense, masculine and sporty outlook. Last but not least, it paves the way for a new set of developments. From this unique piece on, Aikon will be fitted with automatic movements, in addition to quartz.
