First let me begin with the fantastic customer service. I couldn't travel across the ocean to go visit the their workshop and Atelier (It will be on my to do list for sure). Leonard responded quickly to all my inquiries and he provided very beneficial advices. Leonard was very professional and friendly. I felt very confident throughout the process of purchasing my dream watch.

Now lets talk about the watch. WOW. Amazing work. You can tell that every single details is meticulously thought, everything is perfectly balance. The mechanical movement is flawless. I really love that each watch has its own story. The Red Sapphire Crystal is truly giving a soul to the watch.

I’m sincerely happy and grateful to be part of the MDM family. I can only recommend without any hesitation to anyone that desire an awesome friendly and professional customer service that will accompany you during your adventure of finding your dream watch.

Thank you very much Maurice De Mauriac.

Though a fan of watches I walked into Maurice de Mauriac without knowing much of anything about the company, it having slipped my radar until arriving in Zurich. But I promptly fell in love--with the brothers Leo and Massimo who are brilliant, fun and embody watchmaking (precision; symbolism; aesthetics; references; family) in the best sense; with the design ethos and language; with the watches as physical objects; with the process of choosing case materials; dial colors; complications; straps--customizing the watch to my own specs. I bought two pieces as I couldn't choose between them, and as gifts Massimo and Leo gave me a discount on the two, a lesson in watchmaking with their horologist Sean who taught me how to disassemble and assemble a movement; a key chain and straps. Between getting to know Leo and Massimo, getting to spec my own watches and learning how to work with them, this was easily the most meaningful experience of my life with watches. And I haven't taken my L2 off since I bought it. It's brilliant. Thank you Massimo, Leo, Sean and Totor the watch Dog for an amazing experience I will always remember, and for the beautiful watches.

Extraordinary experience to learn first hand how a Swiss watch is made. I had not appreciated the complexity and craftsmanship in my watch until this moment.

Best place to buy a perfect watch with great design. The fist one I bought in 2003, the secont one in 2004, the 3. one in 2008, the other 2 sometime ago ... the last one just now. I love them all. Timeless great design. I visit the store regularly to check new watches, to drink an expresso, chatting about watches ... Once I had a problem with one watch. I gave it to to Daniel Dreyfuss, the founder, he gave me an expresso, after 15 minutes the watch repaired and he only asked "another coffee?". No costs for maintenaince after having the watch abut 8 years. I love this brand.

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!

From Carissa &Family!

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.

We love the watch industry; older vintage watches - usually heritage stories, Father - son, Grandfather - Grandson, it is for us a joy and a responsibility to fulfill the great work, that the next generation still can use the icons of the family tree. We love people, we love tradition - we love our heritage of swiss watchmaking.

We attended Maurice de Mauriacs watch workshop as a club. In the first part Daniel told us about his Career. He has a lot of great stories to tell! In the second part we startet to work on the watches with two professional watchmakers. What a unique and exciting experience!

Many thanks to Daniel and his team for the great evening. I fully recommand Maurice de Mauriac!

The chaps at Maurice de Mauriac are true watch enthusiasts and run a unique shop with completely the opposite atmosphere to Bahnhofstrasse. Also probably the largest selection of straps ever.
