    In a freshly restyled AIKON case, Maurice Lacroix has fitted a new manufacture, openworked, automatic caliber of unique design. Openwork timepieces are an integral part of Maurice Lacroix's history and watchmaking culture. Several successive generations of its watches have featured this graphic and horological principle. In the spirit of contemporary creation, Maurice Lacroix has made AIKON Automatic Skeleton the sum of many new features. In a wide AIKON case, reshaped in order to house this new type of movement, Maurice Lacroix gives the manufacture ML234 caliber its maiden voyage. It is openworked according to a whole new pattern, designed purposefully for this timepiece. And as its affordable watchmaking brand guidelines command, always offering an outstanding quality/finishings/price ratio.
