History of Maurice Lacroix
Maurice Lacroix was founded in the year 1975 and was the parent company of Desco von Schulthess. Desco von Schulthess had been operating in the Swiss watchmaking industry since 1946 and even represented some of the top watchmaking brands in Switzerland. With many years of experience and passion, Desco von Schulthess was inspired to create its collection of luxurious timepieces, the Maurice Lacroix collection. Desco von Schulthess was an internationally operating company founded in Zurich in the year 1889. For some time, Desco von Schulthess continued producing watches for their clients, but in 1980, they decided to focus on their own brand, the Maurice Lacroix collection and stopped producing watches for the other Swiss brands.
Maurice Lacroix Case Manufacture
To achieve the dream of having their own in-house case production, Desco von Schulthess went ahead and bought Queloz S.A., a case making company based in the town of Saignelegier. With the ability to manufacture their cases, Maurice Lacroix stood out among other luxurious watchmaking brands due to their exquisite designs. The Maurice Lacroix watches have been manufactured in state-of-the-art workshops in Saignelegier, which are owned by Desco von Schulthess.
Maurice Lacroix First Collections
In 1990, Desco von Schulthess launched and developed the first Maurice Lacroix's Calypso Collection. The year 1992 proved to be monumental for the Maurice Lacroix brand as Desco von Schulthess launched the first Masterpiece Cinq Aiguilles collection, which was previously known as Les Mecaniques. The Les Mecaniques collection represented very limited models based on the company's heritage and historical movements. The Les Mecaniques collection models are unique and at the top of the list of most sought after preowned Maurice Lacroix watches.
Desco von Schulthess quickly launched the Maurice Lacroix collection, which turned out to be a mega success. With the Masterpiece collections, Maurice Lacroix proved to be committed to the traditional art of watchmaking praised in Switzerland. This helped them attain high standard credibility in making luxurious watches like other well-known Swiss brands. With their success, Maurice Lacroix was quickly expanded to increase its global market coverage. Forty years later, Maurice Lacroix watches can be found in every part of the world.
Maurice Lacroix Brand in the USA
The first Maurice Lacroix store in the United States opened in 1995, and four years later, Desco von Schulthess refurbished their first US Maurice Lacroix case manufacturing company. With this renovation, Desco von Schulthess could deal with the growing demand for Maurice Lacroix watches worldwide. This renovation also gave them a chance to increase their production while improving the quality of their timepieces. Also, in 1999, Maurice Lacroix launched the first Calendrier Retrograde. This antique timepiece can be found at Exquisite Timepieces, with various Maurice Lacroix watch prices for both new and preowned Maurice Lacroix watches for the first Calendrier Retrograde.
