Maurice Lacroix is a luxury watchmaker founded in 1975. The brand has made a commitment to uphold the Swiss horological tradition. Maurice Lacroix places the utmost importance on the quality of its products. Understanding the value of not only craftsmanship and experience, but the quality of materials and design, the brand has managed to achieve a delicate balance between the timepiece’s exterior and its technical elements. The Aikon Venturer GMT by Maurice Lacroix truly displays the beautiful marriage of aesthetic and movement.
The brand’s Aikon collection was first introduced in the 1990s. The line was designed in order to bring finesse and luxury into Maurice Lacroix’s portfolio. The watches in the Aikon collection are a mix of fresh contemporary timepieces and more traditional elegant designs. At the centre of the collection is Maurice Lacroix’s search for opulence.
The latest addition to the range is the Aikon Venturer GMT. This model features a function that is a first in the Aikon collection. Never before seen in this line, the GMT function adds a more elevated technical tone. The Venturer combines all the elements of the Aikon and highlights the comfortable and robust design. The integrated GMT function is the perfect addition to the Venturer. Exploration is the essence of the line. There is nothing more adventurous than being able to experience a new city.
The Aikon Venturer GMT is available in two variations, with a rubber strap and with a stainless steel bracelet. Both the bracelet and the strap close with a folding clasp in stainless steel. The Easychange system on the model allows for the straps to be interchangeable and allows for more versatility. The 43 mm case of the model is made of stainless steel. The case has a brushed finish. A black and white bezel highlights the contemporary monochromatic colour palette. Luminescent indices are featured on the dial. The baton hands are also luminescent. Features on the watch include a date aperture placed at the 3 o’clock position and a central GMT hand in orange. The sunray dial of the watch can also either be a cream white or black. The watches have a water-resistance of up to 30 bars or 300 meters.
The movement on the models is automatic with a calibre ML 165.
