Back in 2018, Swiss watchmakers Maurice Lacroix ran the extremely popular #ChaseYourWatch competition/event, which involved people all over the world hunting for clues and hints as to where the Limited Edition “Chase Your Watch” watch was hidden, across some of the biggest cities around the world. This event proved to be a huge success, and brought a new and fun way of obtaining your very own watch. Now, following on from the popularity seen last year for this style of event, the Maurice Lacroix TimeCode game has been announced.
Once again, the event is going to take place in some of the biggest cities around the world, with London, Oslo and Osaka already announced, and more to come. Each cities individual game will last only 7 days, where entrants will hunt for checkpoints, and collect secret codes, called Timecodes on your map to earn precious time! You will have to explore the city and browse the internet to find these TimeCodes, and the more you find, the higher your chance of winning will be!
The game is to be played through your smartphone, and if you are interested in entering, you can do so here.
The Maurice Lacroix TimeCode Watch
The winner of each event will be lucky enough to win themselves a brand new Aikon Venturer Limited Edition watch. From the Aikon range, this model is the latest release from the brand, following on from the Aikon Quartz in 2016 and the Aikon Automatic in 2018. Players who finish in position 2-5 will also receive a gift bag, including a re-usable branded travel cup, cap, and Bluetooth headphones! Not only will the winner of each city win this fantastic prize, but the overall winner that achieves the fastest time will win a tour of the Maurice Lacroix manufacture in Switzerland too!
The watch itself, the Aikon Venturer, arrives with both a stainless steel bracelet, and a blue calf leather strap with orange stitching. This piece is a completely new colour for the Venturer, following the style and colour of the TimeCode event, which only adds to the exclusivity and reward if you manage to win!
A 44mm stainless steel case, in the iconic Aikon shape, holds a ceramic rotating bezel, and maintains a water resistance of 300m with the help of it’s screw down crown. This proves that the watch is not just for show, it is a fully functioning timepiece, perfectly capable of being used for sports and diving, as well as more formal occasions too! The automatic ML115 movement keeps the watch powered, and helps to keep you on time throughout the day, with extreme precision and accuracy.
