This is the Aikon VENTURER 43mm Limited Edition watch.

We saw the release of the Venturer, a more robust diver’s version of the ML Aikon sports watch released earlier this year.

The Limited Edition Venturer is really the same watch albeit with one or two cosmetic enhancements that give the Venturer more of a diving aesthetic than before.

Specifically by way of its new bold orange appliqué hour-markers that adorn its sun-brushed blue dial.

The same orange has been repeated in the stitching of a special, additional blue calf-leather strap that is supplied along with the Venturer LE in a special presentation box.

Basic spec. includes a 43mm Stainless steel case with 300m. Power comes from an ML 115 automatic movement based on a Sellita SW200.

The Aikon Venturer Limited Edition ref. AI6058-SS002-431-1 comes on a Stainless steel multi-link bracelet with a butterfly clasp.

It has an MSRP is 2,490USD and can be pre-ordered from ML, directly.

Thoughts? It’s nice but honestly there is so much out there from more diver-centric brands such as Omega, Oris, Tudor or even Breitling that outshine this. What do you think?
