Maurice Lacroix has set itself a clear objective: both through consistent preservation of the long tradition of the Swiss watchmaking art and meeting its standards, as well as creating, with its very own, innovative complications and movement developments, contemporary design and a heightened passion for detail and perfection, extraordinary timepieces. Those who appreciate lasting value derived from the synergy of traditional watchmaking, creative development work and the latest technology, as well as aficionados seeking the extraordinary know not to entrust valuable, irrecoverable time to just any timepiece but rather to a timepiece from Maurice Lacroix.
MAURICE LACROIX MANUFACTURE IN SAIGNELÉGIER Having focussed on developing innovative additional functions for several years and presenting the ML 106 calibre, the first movement to be designed and developed entirely in-house, at the end of 2006 Maurice Lacroix took its place in the exclusive club of Swiss Manufacture brands by producing its own complex movement components for mechanical timepieces. Highly modern workshops were established in Montfaucon in the Jura region, not far from the Maurice Lacroix watch ateliers.
These workshops use the latest CNC technology to produce low-volume individual parts with high added value. Maurice Lacroix is emphasising its creative drive to differentiate its timepieces down to the tiniest detail and its desire to monitor, to the greatest possible extent, the development and manufacture of complex mechanical timepieces.
THE IN-HOUSE MOVEMENTS
or more than 30 years, the precious mechanical timepieces of Maurice Lacroix have been produced with utmost precision and perfection by experienced watchmakers in own watchmaking facilities. Where the fine finishing work and the assembly of sometimes microscopically small movement parts are concerned, the experienced hand of the watchmaker and profound knowledge passed down from one watchmaker generation to the next are still very much in demand.
