Maurice Lacroix adds a bronze-cased model to its best-selling Aikon collection with the new Aikon Automatic Bronze.

The new Maurice Lacroix Aikon Automatic Bronze.

Paired with a new brown fumé pattern gradient dial, the watch comes nearly six years after the previous automatic Aikon in bronze, which sported a dark blue patterned dial with Arabic numerals.

This latest example, which Maurice Lacroix issues as a limited region of 888 pieces, matches the bronze hue with a dressier ‘smoked chocolate’ dial.

The elegant Clous de Paris pattern is set with a brown hue that gradually darkens toward the edges. Thin stick indexes in gold also set a more sartorial tone to the watch, as do the gold hands.

Maurice Lacroix adds a few details to the watch’s 42mm case that enhance its dressy appeal, including a brushed bronze finish and sandblasted ‘riders’ on the bezel, meant to add a sense of depth to the moderately sized 11mm thick case.

Maurice Lacroix fits the new Aikon Automatic Bronze with a Sellita automatic movement, which is manufactured to Maurice Lacroix’s specifications to create the Automatic ML135 caliber. These newer specs include rhodium-plated components with snailing and perlage circular graining finishes. The rotor is visible through the open caseback and is fit with the Maurice Lacroix logo.

Finally, Maurice Lacroix attaches the watch to an integrated vintage brown leather strap embellished with the brand’s M logo in 4N gold. An EasyStrap system allows the wearer to swap straps as desired without the need for a special tool.

Price: $2,550.
