Maurice Lacroix has started the year with the presentation of the AIKON Mercury.
Powered by the ML225, a movement developed in-house, the watch contains a patented time memory module on self-winding base.
Its case is made from stainless steel and is 44mm in diameter while the dial features a skeleton design with a sapphire crystal layer with hour markers and a small seconds counter.
At first glance, the Aikon Mercury appears to be a normal watch, with central hours and minutes and small seconds at the six o’clock position.
However, with the slightest tilt, the hour and minute hands spin freely, abandoning their chronometric duties until the Aikon Mercury is back upright when the hands fall back and give the correct time.
Maurice Lacroix put out a video to accompany the release, watch here:
