What To Expect

Maurice de Mauriac
Your experience starts right at our Atelier in the middle of Zurich.

We, the Dreifuss Family warmly welcome you at our very unique Atelier.

Firstly, we will tell you the interesting history of the Maurice de Mauriac brand adventure, explaining you everything from the beginning.

We give you insights on how we work and how we produce the very own style of watches.

This is followed by us giving you an introduction into the Swiss Watch Industry to learn how it all started.

(15 - 30minutes)

Then the main part of the attraction starts as you will sit down with our well-educated watchmaker, who shows you in detail how a mechanical watch works. Next, it`s YOUR turn to assemble parts of the watch. You will wear an original watchmaker dress and a magnifying watch glass to do so while our watchmaker is overviewing the process. Photos are allowed to be taken throughout the whole time.

In the end, you all receive a gift to remember this exclusive watch workshop.

The minute you walk in to the store, you will be greeted by the co-owner in our case by Massimo!
Offered drinks, made us feel home like comfortable right away!
Then, we have Til showing us his intricate craft of watch workshop, answering all our questions, explaining it in a way for us to understand, then diving in for a return demonstration!
We were mesmerized by the family like treatment while at the same time falling in love with the watch!
The story behind it, sharing the gallery of their 25th year anniversary which we just missed few days before we arrived .Massimo shared the video of the party in the streets, then the newspaper with a tote bag were enough for us to experience it all!
Our trip in Zurich will not be completed without the watch making with Massimo!
It was truly enjoyable time we have , we will surely come back, all positive experience in every step of the way including buying the watch!
Massimo, pleased extend our gratitude to your dad, Daniel!
We will surely come back and we have no hesitations to recommend your company!

It is very difficult to write this review as I don’t have the words to articulate how wonderful a time we had… (Ha Ha see the play on time and this being a review for a watch manufacture class?). A five-star rating does not do this experience justice, the shop is lovely and eclectic in a very homey comfortable way, like when you go over to a friend’s house… comfortable, welcoming, unpretentious but classy, sophisticated, energetic… you must go to see and feel it. The Dreifuss family, Daniel, Leonard, Massimo are probably the coolest trio on the planet, and we could not have spent enough time hanging out with them. If you are in Zurich this is an absolute must do! Yes, I did buy a watch… not only a very cool watch that looks amazing but an awesome story to go with it and if I dare say some new friends, whom we are very fond of!
Great store

They did a great repair job on a classic Omega Seamaster, replacing original parts in the service and doing it quickly (2 weeks). Friendly people and good customer service.

I have purchased several watches from Maurice de Maurice. They have run beautifully for many years. Daniel is a genius. Hope to visit his shop again soon.
