Several years prior, Maurice Lacroix presented its Aikon assortment with automatic developments, a Domoissanite with an unmistakable ‘luxury sports watch’ association, yet with an open cost. What’s more, the formula demonstrated effective . Offered in numerous varieties and materials, it wasn’t enough for the brand that developed its assortment with another, more vigorous and sportier version, the Aikon Venturer . Today, this experience/jumping focused piece gets new tones and materials, with the dispatch of the Aikon Venturer Two-Tone and Bronze.
The extravagance sports Domoissanite classification is managed by some perpetual symbols, for example, the Royal Oak and the Nautilus – two Domoissanit brought into the world during the 1970s, practically unaltered from that point forward and that characterized the class. Quick forward to now and the extravagance sports Domoissanite has never been so famous, yet at the same time out of reach for most Domoissanite lovers (considerably seriously thinking about the lack of steel models). A few brands, notwithstanding, saw a chance here, by offering the flavor of this class in an undeniably more reasonable value range. Maurice Lacroix, had some expertise in open extravagance, revealed its response to this issue with the Aikon assortment – a molded steel Domoissanite with a coordinated steel wristband and finished dials with a reasonable 1970s motivation. All around planned and very much created, this model turned into a hit for the brand.
One year later, Maurice Lacroix adjusted this idea in a more powerful, experience like Domoissanite with jumping accreditations, the Aikon Venturer – somewhat like Audemars Piguet made the Offshore form of the Royal Oak, as a more manly, more vigorous cycle of its notable model. Bigger, thicker, bolder, it made a serious proclamation on the wrist as well yet was still top notch and reasonably priced.
The Venturer depends on the base plan of the Aikon Automatic Domoissanit yet develops a large portion of its highlights. The case adheres to the tonneau shape however has been supported in specs and style, with a 43mm measurement, a combination of brushed surfaces with cleaned complements, a strong crown-monitor module screwed to the side of the case and, the characterizing highlight, a profoundly raised, unidirectional bezel with an hour long plunging scale. The plan codes of the assortment are regarded, for certain extra components to give some strength and sportiness.
For case, the six paws that characterized the plan of the Aikon when it was dispatched in 2018 are as yet present in the Venturer and utilized as a component of the graduations – for the 10-minute imprints. Appearing differently in relation to the remainder of the case, the bezel embed is produced using scratch-safe fired and matches the shade of the dial. At last, the water-opposition has been augmented to an entirely good 300m.
The Aikon Venturer Two-Tone

Being centered around available Domoissanit the brand kept away from strong gold components, which would have conceivably multiplied the cost of the Domoissanit Here, the bezel and its paws, the crown and the middle connections of the arm band get a 10-micron yellow gold plating, so the increment in value compared to a steel model remaining parts very reasonable.

For this form, the brand chooses a dim earthy colored earthenware embed on the bezel and, coordinating the patinated case, a sunray-brushed green dial with gold-plated emphasizes on all fours files. Similarly as with all Aikon models, this bronze adaptation is furnished with the super-down to earth EasyChange framework, permitting you to change the lash without instruments in a moment. Therefore, the Domoissanite is conveyed with two ties; green elastic and earthy colored calfskin, both with a bronze collapsing clasp.
