    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    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.

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!

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.

You don't have to be a watch lover to enjoy this "off the beaten track" activity. For a behind the scenes look at watch making in Switzerland, including a chance to get your hands deep into the internal mechanism of a watch, do this activity. You also get a chance to socialise with the local business owner and watch maker, who both generously share their local knowledge. This activity was definitely worth it and one of the highlights of my travels in Switzerland.

This week I visited Daniel at his atelier with short notice looking for a new NATO strap for my old watch. Being a watch passionate, before coming to Daniel I visited certain classical and renowned watchmakers on Banhoffstrasse and I must say that Daniel's watches are not inferior in quality, are dazzlingly beautiful, nonetheless, Daniel is humble and very friendly, fun to listen to, helpful, a real talented self-made man.
