Maurice de Mauriac’s fabulous watches are ‘Made in Zurich’
Boasting minimal and contemporary designs, reliable ‘workhorse’ Swiss movements, and a seemingly infinite range of customisable features, Maurice de Mauriac’s timepieces have become firm favourites of thousands of discerning watch lovers — all of whom appreciate great design, craftsmanship, and, above all, standing out from a crowd. We particularly like the Fabian Schwaerzler-designed L2 diver in bronze, whose caseback is engraved with a sea lion — Zurich’s coat of arms features the land-based lion, so it’s a novel twist given the watch’s intended use and its birthplace.
While you don’t need a Zurich address to buy one, we would thoroughly recommend a visit to the company’s charming atelier on Tödistrasse 48, where founder Daniel Dreifuss is only too happy to share his vision and expertly help you build your perfect watch, down to the colours of the hands or the tint on the sapphire dial. Alternatively, you can find a selection of Maurice de Mauriac’s watches and interchangeable straps listed in the Classic Driver Market.
