In launching the Maurice Lacroix brand in 1975, International Trading Desco von Schulthess were hardly breaking new territory. A company of that name founded in Zurich 1889 had already represented famous Swiss brands. In 1961, a watch factory was built in Saignelegier. Initially the Maurice Lacroix brand was used in parallel with its customer’s brands. It is only when external production was given up that success came for Maurice Lacroix. Then, the company focused its production to quartz movement watches and then started the “Masterpiece Collection” which gave a tremendous success to the company. In 2006, came the new chronograph movement ML106 with column wheel measures 36.6mm and is available exclusively from the company.
