I'm a fan of Maurice Lacroix, but their pieces had gotten a little weird for me and the designs I liked were a bit more expensive than I liked. I liked this Aikon Automatic when I first saw it, but figured it would be expensive. To my surprise it came in at $1990 retail and because I bet they have a hard time moving these watches at AD, I got an even better deal. Initial impressions should be taken with a grain of salt, but I'm pleased with my purchase. The bracelet, like all ML bracelets, is great. It has a nice heft to it. The finish is very nice, not AP nice, but nice nonetheless. The dial has a nice layout and spacing. I wish the date window was blue. It's 200M water resistant.

So far so good. Quick and dirty pics below.

Nice looking watch Banned :Beerbang: , I concur about it needing a blue date window.

Really like that watch. I admit I am a ML fan and own several of them.

See? I needed to see that one in real time, and your pictures did the trick.

Spiff City, man. Really sharp; I get the feeling that one is going to be a favorite. Really freakin' well done! Enjoying this one immensely.

That's really great looking- as you said, it is nice to see ML coming back to earth a little bit.

Great looking watch, with elements that remind me of a favourite of mine, the original AP Royal Oak.
Spiffy indeed.
