Maurice Lacroix and Its Own Beach Volleyball Giants

Maurice Lacroix is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer. It was founded in 1975 and rapidly became a great achievement. Maurice Lacroix has produced all watch cases in-house since 1989 when it procured the case company Queloz. The Masterpiece, Les Mecaniques, Pontos, Eliros, Miros, Masterpiece Le Chronograph, and Les Classiques are all noteworthy watches of the brand.

Maurice Lacroix is known to be in partnership with energetic and successful young athletes. Among them are Ditaji Kambundji, Alexandra Trusova, and Hannah Lucy Williams who are great in the field of hurdling, skating, and track and field. Today, let us talk about the ML crews who are considered giants in the field of beach volleyball: Joana Heidrich & Anouk Vergé-Dépré, and Anders Mol & Christian Sørum.

Joana Heidrich & Anouk Vergé-Dépré

Beach volleyball duo Joana Heidrich and Anouk Vergé-Dépré have joined the Maurice Lacroix Crew. The Swiss duo took gold at the European Championships in 2020 and look set to have even more achievements in the future. One look at their chiseled bodies reveals how devoted these two elite athletes are to their masterpiece. According to Stéphane Waser, Maurice Lacroix Managing Director, Joana, and Anouk are extremely focused. They are devoted to their game and pushed to achieve success. These characteristics are shared by the brand and, no doubt, the numerous users of Maurice Lacroix watches. The brand chose Joana and Anouk for the ML Crew for that great reason.

Joana mentions two specific criteria for preferring Maurice Lacroix as their official watch brand. They like the concept of being affiliated with a brand that is dedicated to producing affordable and high-quality watches that are great for everyday use. They feature traditional Swiss workmanship as well as multiple enhancements and specifics.

ML timepieces for them are extremely elegant. Furthermore, they have a fondness for the brand when they join ML Crew members on their journey where they are able to share both positive and negative experiences. Anouk brings that on the way to your objective, you will have many successes, as well as problems and challenges to surmount. In the end, it is the story, not the aim, that is important.

AIKON Automatic 42mm Black

The first favorite ML watch of the duo is the AIKON Automatic 42mm ref AI6008-PVB01-330-1. The AIKON Automatic is the AIKON set’s heart and soul. This piece takes on new significance when dressed in black. The timepiece’s sandblasted treatment is not hidden by the power of its black PVD.

Its matt finish encompasses the watch case, screw-down crown, and bezel with the AIKON’s signature six arms. Its water resistance to 200 meters has not been compromised. The AIKON Automatic Black’s Clou de Paris dial introduces a new way of interacting with light. The anthracite hands and polished applied hour markers, which are encased in black Super-LumiNova, gleam with a specific vibrancy, which is the same color as the rest of the watch.

AIKON Automatic 42mm

Their next favorite is the AIKON Automatic 42mm ref AI6008-SS002-331-1. AIKON Automatic timepieces are descended from the Calypso by Maurice Lacroix. This steel watch was one of the brand’s legendary designs in the 80s and 90s, and it bore the same design codes as the AIKON, such as a strap marked with an applique M logo, a six-arm bezel surrounding a flat sapphire crystal, and an integrated case.

Anders Mol and Christian Sørum

Maurice Lacroix is extremely pleased to welcome beach volleyball players Anders Mol and Christian Sørum from team Beach Volley Vikings to the brand’s crew. The two Norwegian athletes have recently joined a lot of skilled and dedicated individuals from all around the world.

Anders Mol and Christian Sørum appear to have Volleyball in their DNA, almost as if they were conceived in the sand. With mom and dad who are trainers, athletes, and have even competed in the Olympics, it was only instinctual that the Volley Vikings team’s founders would have the same passion and vocation in life. 

These two Volley giants, whose combined height is nearly 13 feet as Anders Mol is nearly 6’7″ and Christian Sørumis 6’4″, have made an impression on circuits around the globe with stellar performances. They garnered two bronze medals, one silver medal, and seven gold medals in 2019 alone. These kinds of results have propelled this duo to the status of existing title contenders, a championship they will have to safeguard as part of an already packed schedule around the globe. Maurice Lacroix will always be nearby to cheer on these athletes.

AIKON Automatic 42mm

The first favorite ML watch of the two is the AIKON Automatic 42mm ref AI6008-SS002-331-1. The model comes in a stainless steel case and bracelet, anthracite sun-brushed Clous de Paris dial, and 20atm water resistance. It is powered by an automatic ML115 and includes hours, minutes, seconds, a date at 3 o’clock, and 38 hours of power reserve.

ELIROS Chronograph 40mm

The two are also fond of the ELIROS Chronograph 40mm ref EL1098-PVP01-210-1. The dial of the Eliros Chronograph is hand-brushed grey while the surface treatment of the dial gives each watch a one-of-a-kind image. Whereas the Date has an elegant appearance, the Chronograph has a noticeably sporty appearance. A high-precision quartz movement is at the core of this prototype, making it ideal for quantifying elapsed time when seconds really count. This chronograph model, like its sister, the Eliros Date, is 40mm in diameter and features 4N PVD coating on the hands, case, and indexes.

PONTOS Chronograph 43mm

Last on their list is the PONTOS Chronograph 43mm ref PT6388-SS001-331-1. Because of the volume of information on the dial of a chronograph, it can have seemed daunting. The Pontos Chronograph 43mm Chronograph communicates with the wearer in a user-friendly manner, in keeping with the collection’s credibility for succinct interaction.

What’s More?

For more than three decades, accomplished watchmakers have produced mechanical watches with high accuracy and greatness in their watchmaking amenities. When it comes to fine finishing work and the installation of sometimes relatively tiny movement parts, the watchmaker’s expert hand and deep understanding passed down from one watchmaker generation to the next are still in fierce competition. With this, you can tell that Maurice Lacroix watches are ideal for athletes all over the world.
