Mau­rice Lacroix’s Aikon col­lec­tion wel­comes another icon with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Aikon Au­to­matic Skele­ton – the first me­chan­i­cal watch in the long­stand­ing line of quartz time­keep­ers. At 45mm in di­am­e­ter, the au­to­matic watch cer­tainly makes its pres­ence known with the em­blem­atic six arms en­hanc­ing its pow­er­ful per­sona. The most at­trac­tive thing, how­ever, is the in­ter­est­ing man­ner in which the in-house cal­i­bre ML234 au­to­matic move­ment has been skele­tonised. The DLC­coated bridges are as­sem­bled to seem­ingly rip­ple from the main­spring bar­rel at one o’ clock, with their cen­tral canals low­ered and sand­blasted while their satin-brushed out­lines sits a level above. Con­tin­u­ing with the skele­ton­i­sa­tion of the move­ment, al­most all the com­po­nents are hol­lowed, in­clud­ing the bar­rel, bal­ance wheel, wind­ing mech­a­nism and os­cil­lat­ing weight.
