The Maurice Lacroix Aikon stands out as a top choice among high-end luxury sports watches, earning a coveted spot on every watch collector’s list. A direct descendant of the 1990 Calypso, the Aikon has been a presence for several years in various forms and styles. A few years back, the Swiss brand introduced the urban Aikon Venturer watch, featuring a captivating honey-toned bronze case. Building on this concept, the company has now unveiled the Aikon Venturer Bronze in burgundy for the current year. This latest iteration, limited to just 288 pieces, is exclusively crafted for the Asian market, making it a unique offering for discerning watch enthusiasts in the region.

Aikon’s Bronze Makeover: A Timeless Transformation

Once recognised as the Calypso, the launch of Maurice Lacroix’s Aikon collection stands as a transformative moment, completely revitalising the brand. The now-iconic design and distinctive language served as a unifying force for the entire company, propelling Maurice Lacroix back into the forefront of customers’ minds. Within a short span, the Aikon collection has witnessed a massive evolution. From modest quartz watches, it now boasts automatic variations, intricately skeletonised iterations, the daringly designed #Tide edition, and now the Venturer range. This expansion not only reflects the brand’s adaptability but also underscores its commitment to innovation, ensuring a dynamic presence in the ever-evolving world of luxury watches.

Deliberately chosen for the Asian markets, the fusion of these colours holds thoughtful significance. Red, with its positive connotations of vitality, luck, and joy, also serves as a symbol to ward off evil. The bronze case, occasionally casting golden hues in specific lighting, is inherently tied to notions of power and wealth. This careful selection not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the timepiece but also integrates cultural symbolism, making it a meaningful and auspicious accessory.

The stunning burgundy dial of this timepiece is adorned with a sunray motif, and its hands, indexes, and date window shine in a rich golden tone. Day or night, you’ll find optimum legibility, thanks to the hands and indexes filled with white Super-LumiNova. Staying true to the classic Aikon style, this limited-edition watch also showcases the signature six-arm bezel design. What makes this edition special is the rotating bezel with a burgundy ceramic inlay, offering both style and durability. Crafted from scratch-proof ceramic, this watch will maintain its brand-new charm for years to come. 

The heart of the Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer Asia Special Edition ticks to the rhythm of the automatic ML115 calibre, tucked away behind a caseback adorned with the charming ‘Vagues du Jura’ motif and the brand’s iconic ‘M’ logo. In simple terms, this timepiece does the job with time and date functions, complemented by a handy unidirectional rotating bezel.
