The Aikon collection has never been shy about its ambitions of becoming an industry icon. Maurice Lacroix created this sporty yet elegant collection in the image of two legendary timepieces: the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus. Both were designed by Gérald Genta in the 1970s and have come to define modern watch design. In the 1990s, Maurice Lacroix released a legend in its own right in the form of the Calypso, which incorporates design elements from Genta's masterpieces.
In 2016, the Swiss manufacturer took the Calypso collection back to the drawing board and re-released it under the "Aikon" name. The modern collection is home to three-hand timepieces and chronographs. Distinguishing features include six polished bezel rider tabs, as well as integrated bracelets and straps. Maurice Lacroix also outfits certain models with sun brushed dials that boast Clous de Paris engraving. Shop Now
