Maurice Lacroix, one of the strong players of the mid-level, adds a new model to the successful model family Aikon collection in the sport-chic segment. The limited edition model draws attention with its skeleton-style dial detail, as well as its case and bracelet decorated in the concept the brand calls Urban Tribe.
Today, when integrated bracelet luxury sports watches are in their golden age again, many brands continue to introduce products for this stylish, sporty, and versatile segment. Aikon, the representative of this group in Maurice Lacroix, also called sport-chic, has been appreciated by watch enthusiasts since the day it was released. The model family, which pushes the industry's possibilities for more variety, instead of being limited to basic parameters such as case diameter, function, or color, says hello to a new model today.
The Urban Tribe concept, which we saw for the first time in 2021, was a limited edition model to celebrate the brand's partnership with track and free running expert Simon Nogueira, known for running on the roofs of Paris and other cities. The newly introduced model brings the concept together with the skeleton dial. Let's take a closer look at the new version, which the brand says is inspired by "high architectural structures that give a city a unique silhouette".
The new model comes in a modern Aikon case with a diameter of 39mm and is made of stainless steel. Sapphire crystals serve on the front and back of the case, which draws attention with its decoration consisting of the combination of Maori-style tattoo patterns with modern architectural figures. Equipped with a unique bezel that houses 6 rider tabs and a hexagonal crown, the stylish case is waterproof up to 200 meters.
The eye-catching model is accompanied by a dial made of sapphire crystal. The SW200-1-based Caliber ML115, specially produced by Sellita for this model, can be enjoyed on the dial with hour markers on it. The automatic caliber, which has been purified from the date function specific to the model, offers 38 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
The model, which is limited to only 500 pieces, is offered with a metal bracelet with the same decorative details as the case.
