Maurice the watch-whisperer invites: There aren’t many people who know the souls of things, …and even fewer can make these souls perceptible and tangible to others. Maurice can. If you also desire to belong to this chosen group, then you have to come to Maurice. “à Maurice”, from Maurice de Mauriac, is a meeting place for people who want to feel and to experience the soul of mechanical watches.
To find the souls of mechanical watches, you don’t necessarily have to open them up. Instead, if you simply open yourself, then you can hear, touch, and feel this soul. Daniel Dreifuss and his sons are able to create this intimate atmosphere.
In order to ensure that no one leaves without having acquired a profound knowledge “à Maurice”, the watchmaker, who day in and day out works on and together with the souls of the mechanical watches, is also present.
Friends of watches, families, employees, customers and everyone who wants to sharpen their awareness for the intangible values—those who avoid superficiality and desire to become more contemplative, more attentive—will love Maurice.
At the end of this journey there always lies a deeper, more profound realisation. And the same holds for Maurice that holds for whispering: It isn’t exactly clear why, but one’s view of things—and, of course, of mechanical watches—undergoes a change.
We eagerly await to share such moments with you.
