“Maurice de Mauriac‘s 42mm ‚L2‘ watch is optimised for divers. The DLC-coated stainless steel case is fitted with a helium release valve to protect the internal calibre ETA 28.24-2 power source even at 30 bar below the water‘s surface. The back of this Swiss-made piece is engraved with a sea lion – a fitting adaptation of the city of Zurich‘s mascot, the lion.”

Watch specifications

Special characteristic

L2 in DLC, Helium release valve

During extreme diving situations, helium atoms make their way into the watch. As such, the process of decompression could dislodge the watch crystal. The helium release valve prevents this from occurring by allowing the excess pressure to escape via the valve and due to this, it is possible to dive below 300 meters.

Special characteristic

L2 in DLC, case-back

A watch like a lion, a sea lion. What animal is closely associated with people and is known for its skilful ability to dive to great depths? The sea lion. The backside of the L2 is adorned with this magnificent creature, whose manoeuvrability, elegance and function attuned to life underwater stand for a diving watch blending all of these traits. Given that the lion is the symbol of Zurich, the city that has shaped the evolution of this watch, it seems only appropriate that the sea lion should be the symbol of the Maurice de Mauriac L2. A roar – both below and above water – has been sent out from Maurice de Mauriac throughout the world.

Special characteristic

L2 The darker, the brighter

Super-LumiNova is a brand name under which strontium aluminate–based non-radioactive and non-toxic photoluminescent or afterglow pigments for illuminating markings on watch dials, hands and bezels, etc. in the dark are marketed. This technology offers up to ten times higher brightness than previous zinc sulfide-based materials. When the luminescent pigments were stimulated by daylight or artificial light, they give off the light energy in the dark for several hours. This gives the watch extremely good legibility even in the dark.

Special characteristic

DLC coating

Stainless steel or titanium with a DLC-coating (Diamond-Like-Carbon) stands out via its beautiful grey / black colour. DLC makes stainless steel extremely abrasion and scratch resistant. Moreover, the layer of carbon applied in a state-of-the-art vacuum process is also highly anti-allergenic.
