A Closer Look at the Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer Dive

Maurice Lacroix announces the pending release of its newest creation in a modern dive watch that has yet to make its formal introduction to the world. The Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer Dive Watch is slated to make its debut at Baselworld 2019, but we’re privileged to have a sneak peak at their addition to the Aikon line of sports watches. It will be a welcome addition we’re sure with the Pontos S. Diver going by the wayside. It’s a gap that has needed to be filled and the new creation is deserving of a closer look.

The case of the Aikon Venturer

We begin with the case which is made of stainless steel material, similar to the three hand Aikon, but this iteration features a case that is 43 mm in diameter and it offers 300 meters of water resistance. The case is made in a shape that is slightly rectangular with lugs that curve downwards. The bezel is a unidirectional rotating type that is thick in its height with serrated edges. The bezel sits atop an insert of ceramic with a dive scale that is finished with a large luminous pip placed at the 12 o’clock position. The watch is made more rugged through the addition of two screwed on guards. This works nicely as a balance with the sleek and angular case to give it a bit of symmetry. case back is nicely engraved with a few of the specifications and is also made of stainless steel material.

The dial

The dial represents a bigger departure from the predecessor with a new smooth sun ray finish that is lovely when there is an interplay of light and darkness, It’s a vibrant blue color which is reminiscent of the ocean depths. The hour markers are applied and circular in their shape with rectangular cuts. the sword hands of the watch are long and bear luminous paint. There is a unique mixture of curves and lines which are aesthetically pleasant.

The movement

The new Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer Dive Watch is powered with a movement called the Sellita SW200, otherwise known in Maurice Lacroix circles as the Caliber ML115. It is a three hand movement that beats at 4 Hz with a three hand date function along with hours and minutes. The power reserve is 40 hours.

The strap

The Aikon Venturer Dive fastens to the wrist with an integrated rubber strap that is suitable for water excursions, but the design of the lugs also make it amenable to the use of an available five link bracelet which also attaches easily. One of the cool features of the watch is its interchangeable strap system so if you want to make it sportier, go with the rubber, but the metal will definitely turn it into a dressier accessory for the wrist.

Pricing and availability

The Maurice Lacroix Aikon Venturer Dive watch is an important new edition for the brand because it will carry forth their signature sports watch line. Although it bears the DNA of the Aikon automatic it definitely has a personality that is all its own. When deciding which luxury sports watch to choose, the new Maurice Lacroix version offers perhaps a more affordable version alongside its higher priced competitors. The retail price of the Aikon Adventurer will begin at $1,890 for the version featuring a rubber strap. If you prefer to update to the metal bracelet the price goes up another $100 to a mere $1,990. We’re told that there will also be a special package available which will include the rubber strap and the metal bracelet along with the watch in one convenient set for the price of $2,190.

Final thoughts

When compared to the $1,750 asked for the standard Aikon, the cost isn’t radically more, keeping it at an affordable range and availability for a higher percentage of the public. W’eve not yet heard about when the watch is going to be made available for sale to the public. This will only serve to build the anticipation for the new diver that is perhaps just a little overdue. At any rate, we’re waiting to hear more abut when it will be offered through local retailers.
