Maurice Lacroix unveils its latest timepiece, the AIKON Skeleton, a model inspired by urban architecture.
Presented in a 39mm stainless steel case, the modest diameter of this watch promises widespread appeal. Moreover, it complements the brand’s existing portfolio of skeleton models housed in 43mm, 44mm and 45mm cases.
Maurice Lacroix has a long history of making skeleton watches and over the years it has amassed much know-how. The company now applies its expertise to the creation of a new, contemporary model with smaller case dimensions.
The company has worked closely with movement specialist, Sellita to conceive the exclusive Automatic ML115 (base SW200) featured in this latest model. Similar to some of the most interesting buildings, this movement plays with transparency, allowing light to pass through various openings, thereby illuminating a myriad of parts.
The oscillating weight is customised and sports sandblasted and sun-brushed decoration. Furthermore, the movement is endowed with circular graining and colimaçon.
Consistent with other members of the AIKON collection, this latest creation shares the same case and bracelet, delivering exalted levels of wearer comfort.
Moreover, with its Easy Strap Exchange system, the wearer can swap the bracelet for one of the leather or rubber strap options, quickly and without the need for tools.
