Workshop

You've never assembled a watch yourself, have you? But now you can: We run watchmaking courses in our workshop for interested parties (aged 12 and over). You can take apart and assemble a Unitas pocket watch movement under expert supervision.

In Detail

A family member will tell you about the history of the watchmaking industry and that of our Maurice de Mauriac watch manufactory. You will then be placed in the skilled hands of our watchmakers, who will first explain what makes a mechanical watch and why it ticks. Then it's "hands on" - with watchmaker's clothing and a magnifying glass, you'll go straight to the open UNITAS watch movement. This is 10 times larger than a conventional movement. The watchmaker disassembles the pocket watch movement and explains each part to you. But you have to be careful, because afterwards you have to put it back together again.

Families, friends and teams take the opportunity to enjoy a shared experience that not only brings the mechanical watch to life, but is also useful as a team-building exercise, as you reassemble a complete movement together and it ticks at the end.

Workshop
+ Watch

Watchmaking course II builds on the knowledge gained in watchmaking course I. In the continuation course, you will assemble your own Maurice De Mauriac watch in around two hours under the guidance of professionals. You can choose from various versions of the Icon L1 design. The watchmakers will engrave a personalised engraving on the rotor, for example your initials, making the watch an unmistakably unique piece, especially with this experience. The course costs as much as the L1 you choose plus 150.00 per hour.

Sunday is Family Day ❤️ for us it’s everyday and now it can be for you too…

You can get a Nato strap for your watch to match your Lanyard and key ring - or vice versa. It’s not only extremely cool, but also a pendant in the broader sense. This is because the watch remains firmly attached to the arm even if a bar should give up its function. In the exciting times between spring and summer, this is certainly a valuable idea.

You can also simply find our lanyards and key holders extremely beautiful. They already have many fans. You may also want to become a follower of these pendats.

I had a special wish and the Mauriacs made it possible. That is the quality of small but demanding companies.
Something of the most interesting in Zurich!
