Description

Maurice La Croix Aikon Chronograph Quartz Black Dial Black Leather Strap Men’s Watch AI1018-PVB01-337-1 RRP £1,190

Limited to just 1000 pieces worldwide, the highly sought after Maurice La Croix Aikon Chronograph AI1018-PVB01-337-1 is as attractive as it is limited. As a bonus, we have included a FREE black leather strap which can be exchanged with the original.

The Case:

The Maurice LaCroix Aikon Chronograph AI1018-PVB01-337-1 features a sharp barrel styled brushed steel case is another classy touch. It measure in at 44mm. Another addition is the 10 minute ‘Claws’ that sit on the bezel, this is an opulent design feature common in luxurious watches such as the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, amongst others. The defined edges of the case work perfectly to create a sporty looking timepiece that is going to bestow your wrist a watch with a unavoidable nightly presence. 

The inclusion of oversized crew down pushers make the size of the watch even more prominent. This a highly sought after feature for collectors interested in chronograph timepieces, notably on the Rolex Daytona. Although the watch’s dimensions and size does make it a relatively heavy model, the tapered angles of the case and integrate lugs provide the wearer with a comfortable fit on their wrist.

The Dial:

One of the most significant visual changes that distinguishes it from the traditional Aikon is the smooth finish on the dial. This finish is known as sun-brushed, giving off the same effect as if the sun was striking the dial. The silver, elegant, applied hour markers are rectangular in shape, which adds a touch of class to the dial, which equally underscores the craftsmanship behind this mode. Likewise, the silver sword hands are made from rhodium, which is a platinum based material renowned for its highly reflective and resistant qualities.

Tasteful dashes of blue form a motif that is present throughout the dial, as well as on the watch’s strap too. Notably, through the seconds hand and the rehaut minute track that runs around the dial. The rehaut also gives the watch a level deepness. Arguably the most definitive feature of the dial is the 3 snailed counter chronograph sub dials that also incorporate the black on blue motif. The Maurice La Croix logo is present besides the 3 o’clock mark, whilst a date window is present above the 6 o’clock mark.

The Strap:

The black carbon-effect leather strap is one of many attractive features of this timepiece that embrace are reflective of the watch’s sporty nature. Perhaps inspired by today’s automotive and motor sport technology, as it already involve high-tech ceramics and carbon fibre composites. Nonetheless, the bracelet only bares a similar weave like appearance, as it is made from stitched leather. The contrasting blue stitching that runs around the outer edge of the strap distinguishes it. So, not only will this watch leather strap add glamour to your wrist, but it also feel comfortable too. Also, it fastens easily using a stainless steel butterfly clasp.

The additional FREE strap retails for a price of £149. In terms of the strap, it is made of a leather material and is attached to the watch by means of pushpins. Measuring at a band width of 24mm the strap is suitable for the original model. At a maximum length of 22cm the strap is suitable for most sizes.

Functions:

The piece features a traditional look: a three-hand display with a chronograph, day-date function and updated movement. The chronograph function is  perfect for measuring a run in the park. The chronograph used on this watch has an accuracy down to a tenth of a second (seen at 12 o’clock) and a measuring capacity of 30 minutes (seen at nine o’clock). Furthermore, the sub-dial seen at 6 o’clock is a small seconds display which again is common amongst classical watches.

This watch has a water resistance of 100 metres, making it suitable for swimming and snorkelling.

Aikon family: 

The Maurice LaCroix Aikon Automatic was first released in 2018, two years after the introduction of the Aikon Quartz line. The Aikon Quartz echoed the design code of the iconic Calypso, which became a definitive piece in Maurice LaCroix’s rise through the ranks of affordable luxury watches in the 1990s. For example, it features an integrated and water resistant case, the six-arm bezel surrounding a flat sapphire crystal and the strap marked with an applied M logo.

In 2016, Maurice LaCroix began producing the quartz AIKON, which is a modern reinterpretation of the iconic Calypso. The quartz Aikon was further developed in 2018, as the AIKON automatic range was released. In 2019, we saw the first formal expansion of the automatic range which came in the from of the Venturer. Finally, in 2020, we saw the family take on a new, more urban and eternal sporty-chic look with the extension of the AIKON Quartz line. 

History: 

Having only been founded in 1975 as part of Desco von Schulthess of Zurich, Maurice LaCroix Watches have enjoyed a rapid ascension to become the pinnacle of Swiss watchmaking. The company’s roots date back to 1889, as it was involved in the silk trade. Prior to the birth of Maurice LaCroix, in 1975, the company had been producing watch components for other vendors. However, due to the increasing popularity of Maurice they had to stop producing components for other companies. The launch of their high-end collection Les Mécaniques in 1990 marked Maurice LaCroix’s expansion. For instance, it now boasts partnerships with FC Barcelona, Red Bull Cliff Diving and Justin Rose. 

They have also picked up scores of awards and patents in the process. Notably, they have enjoyed great success at the RedDot Ceremony over the years. For example, they have received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for several years running, 2019 proved no exception for Maurice LaCroix, with the jury members being won over by the new AIKON Automatic Skeleton. This reward underscores Maurice LaCroix’s commitment to always producing watches inspired by their distinguished innovation, precision and craftsmanship.

Each Maurice LaCroix timepiece is an expert blend of tradition, creative development and cutting-edge technology. Manifesting the maison’s ‘tradition for creating open worked watches, imbued with visual lightness and torsional strength.’

Free Strap Adjustment

It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.

Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.

This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.

Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent

When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!

Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.

How to measure your wrist

You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:

You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.

In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.

Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.

Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally

If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
