The AIKON Mercury combines an unprecedented and patented “free hand” system that works with natural forces of gravity to read and display time from a double snail-cam mechanism hidden beneath the dial.
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. With the slightest tilt, however, the blue hour and minute hands spin freely, abandoning their chronometric duties. Hold the AIKON Mercury upright, and the hands fall back and give correct time.This is the secret of the AIKON Mercury. Like time, it slips away when you’re not paying attention. Like time, it reasserts itself when you need it. The patented mechanism behind this innovative display took 3 years to develop and perfect in the Manufacture facilities of Maurice Lacroix in Saignelégier.
