Swiss watch brand Maurice Lacroix presents the AIKON Quartz Chronograph, a limited-edition Vikings watch designed in collaboration with ML Crew members and professional beach volleyball players Anders Mol and Christian Sørum.
Two years ago, Anders Mol and Christian Sørum joined the ML Crew. Throughout their careers they have won numerous gold medals and are currently ranked number 1 in their chosen sport. Building on its relationship with Anders and Christian, Maurice Lacroix has created a limited-edition timepiece encompassing the ideas of the ambitious duo. Indeed, both athletes played an active role in the design process.
Anders and Christian wanted a watch they could wear while competing on the court. This meant the watch had to be light, comfortable to wear and precise. Moreover, the watch needed to be shock resistant.
The AIKON Quartz Chronograph – Limited Edition Vikings, a limited-edition of 250 pieces, is suffused with Beach volley Vikings’ team colours. This chronograph stylishly combines blue, red and white tones, conferring a young, vibrant appearance. The watch is housed in a 44mm stainless steel case.
Dressed in red, the dial features a sun-brushed effect and incorporates three snailed counters presented in a contrasting shade of blue. The hour and minute hands are rhodium-plated and treated with White Super -LumiNova, aiding legibility in dim light conditions. A date display is located within the counter at 6 o’clock, completing the inventory of functions.
Reinforcing the association with the Beachvolley Vikings, the AIKON Quartz Chronograph – Limited Edition Vikings is fitted with a rubber strap enlivened with the team’s colours. The case back is engraved with Beach volley Vikings branding, recognising the team’s success on the world stage.
This watch perpetuates the story of the AIKON, a timepiece launched in 2016 that was inspired by the Calypso, a popular watch produced in the 90s. The design codes of the AIKON include a bezel, adorned with six prominent arms, and a case that juxtaposes polished and satin-brushed finishes throughout.
