Maintaining the iconic form factor of its counterparts, the new Aikon Chronograph Skeleton features a large 44mm stainless steel case with a fixed 60-minute bezel and its graduations engraved in 10-minute intervals. Sitting within the bezel and beneath the sapphire crystal is an intricately skeletonized sapphire dial, holding two subdials at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions which work in parallel with the lockable pushers on the side, as well as three-hand configuration with the seconds hand completely painted in blue to offer a welcome contrast to the otherwise more muted tones.
To reveal more of the beautifully constructed Swiss-made movement, which was outsourced but designed and skeletonized by Maurice Lacroix itself, not only did the company also cut away parts of the black mainplate, but also completely removed all indices, instead opting for a minute and seconds scale around the outer rim. As for its performance, the 28-jewel timepiece runs at 4Hz and will hold a power reserve of 48 hours, complete with 200m water resistance.
For the watch collectors out there, Maurice Lacroix’s Aikon Chronograph Skeleton is now available at select retailers, going for $6,900 USD. Head over to its website to learn more now.
