Maurice Lacroix released the first Aikon watches in 2016. This series is the direct descendant of the Calypso collection from the late 1990s. Six polished bezel rider tabs and an integrated bracelet or strap characterize every Aikon watch. The resulting timepieces feel very sporty and bear a striking resemblance to all-time classics like the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus.

The Aikon is the largest collection in Maurice Lacroix’s catalog. It contains men’s, women’s, and unisex watches in various sizes; three-hand watches, chronographs, and the Aikon Venturer diving watch series; and quartz and automatic timepieces. The dials come in black, silver, blue, or anthracite, many of which feature a sunburst pattern or guilloché engraving.

Maurice Lacroix’s designers decided against a dial for the Aikon Automatic Skeleton. As a result, the wearer has an unobstructed view of the intricately skeletonized in-house caliber ML234. Sapphire crystal on the front and back means you can watch the movement at work from above and below. Other top Aikon models feature bronze cases, a black PVD coating, or a camouflage aesthetic.

The Aikon Automatic Skeleton changes hands for about 4,800 USD. If you’re interested in an automatic chronograph, you should plan on spending around 2,300 USD. Quartz chronographs sell for roughly 1,100 USD. Three-hand watches with a quartz caliber demand some 980 USD. On the other hand, their automatic counterparts cost anywhere from 1,400 to 1,700 USD. The Aikon Venturer diving watch is water resistant to 300 m (30 bar, 656 ft) and requires an investment of just over 2,100 USD.

Aikon Automatic Mercury with a Time Memory Module

The Aikon Automatic Mercury boasts a truly extraordinary complication. Its in-house caliber, the ML225, comes with Maurice Lacroix’s patented time memory module. This small mechanism allows the hands to swing freely. However, they automatically return to their normal position and display the current time when held upright.

Expect to pay around 6,500 USD for this exceptional timepiece.

Pontos

The Pontos collection is made up of sporty dress watches. Introduced in 1999, these timepieces feature timeless and elegant sunburst dials in your choice of black, anthracite, blue, or silvery white.

The collection has exclusively featured three-hand watches and chronographs since 2016. Prior to that, Maurice Lacroix also produced Pontos watches with a GMT function. Each Pontos houses an automatic ETA caliber. Three-hand watches use the caliber ML143, which is based on the ETA 2836-2, while chronographs get their power from a slightly modified version of the Valjoux 7750.

Prices for Pontos watches depend on their year of production and condition. For example, you can purchase a well-maintained Pontos GMT for as little as 610 USD. More recent three-hand watches with a day-date display cost between 1,300 and 1,700 USD. The price range for chronographs is similarly broad. While mint-condition models from recent years demand around 2,400 USD, pre-owned pieces from the early 2000s often sell for less than 890 USD.

Pontos S

Maurice Lacroix ceased production of the Pontos S in 2016. This professional diving watch is suited to saturated diving thanks to its depth rating of 600 m (60 bar, 1,969 ft) and automatic helium escape valve. One of the Pontos S’ defining features is its internal diving bezel, which is operated via an additional crown at 2 o’clock. Luminous material coats the hands, numerals, and indices so that you can always tell the time, even in the dark. Based on the Sellita SW200, the automatic caliber ML115 ticks away inside the 43-mm case. Plan to spend between 1,300 and 1,600 USD on one of these diving watches.

You’ll also find the Pontos S with a chronograph function. These timepieces come with the same internal diving bezel; however, they are only water-resistant to 200 m (20 bar, 656 ft) and lack a helium escape valve. Their power comes from either the ETA 7750 or the identical Sellita SW500. Standard editions have a stainless steel case and cost about 1,900 USD. For about 110 USD more, you can get your hands on the special FC Barcelona edition. It features the Catalan club’s crest on its dial, case sides, and stainless steel case back.

The Pontos S Extreme is another interesting alternative. It’s made of Maurice Lacroix’s proprietary Powerlite alloy, a mixture of aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, and ceramic. This material is extremely light and robust and is easy to produce in different colors. For example, Pontos S Extreme models are available with a black, titanium gray, blue, or green case. Prices for these chronographs sit around 2,100 USD.
