Le Méridien presents the new AIKON Mercury watch for the new OnlyWatch charity auction. This ingenious work incorporates patented technology. It is clever and timeless, mysterious, and breathtaking … This unique watch is also the first OnlyWatch with a titanium case. It will be auctioned by Christie’s at the Four Seasons Hotel in Berger, Geneva, Switzerland, on November 9th, and the proceeds will be donated to the Monaco Gastric Continents Myopathies.
In 2016, Le Méridien launched the AIKON series of watches. In the 1990s, Le Méridien’s iconic design elements returned in glory and iteratively upgraded for the new millennium. The elegant lines of the AIKON series blend with the sharp, sharp-edged contours, matte and polished finishes alternate. Existing AIKON series models focus on guilloché dials to reveal exquisite elegance, while AIKON series Mercury watches draw on the design highlights of the original series models, equipped with transparent sapphire dials, allowing a deep view of dark hollow components. Since the 1990s, hollowed-out dials have become a design feature of Le Méridien. Now they have been re-interpreted with a striking and fashionable atmosphere. They are incorporated into a circular frosted surface facing the center of the dial combined with a hollow sandblasted decorative bridge.
Le Méridien is renowned for its meticulous design and attention to detail, and the AIKON Mercury is no exception. AIKON’s original bezel and leather strap with the brand’s ‘M’ logo are the classic emblems of this watch series, while the AIKON Mercury watch has lived up to expectations and the appearance has been upgraded again.
Whenever two toffee pointers intersect, the pointer weight instantly surrounds the ‘M’ logo weight of the hour hand, which is both fun and pleasing. This time display effect seems simple, but it requires the Le Méridien R & D team to complete calculations, computer simulations and prototype prototype trials, to ensure that the pointer can not only hover smoothly on the dial, but also accurately position the center of gravity, When the watch is reset from the upright position, the hands can easily move forward. This unique treasure features white Super-LumiNova and blue coated hands to indicate the hours and minutes, while the teeth, cams and strap stitching are also echoed in blue, highlighting the OnlyWatch 2019 Classic color scheme for the watch.
