WHO THEY ARE An assem­bly work­shop es­tab­lished in Saignelegier, Switzer­land, by its par­ent com­pany, Desco von Schulthess AG, in 1961, to make watch parts for other com­pa­nies. The brand was es­tab­lished in 1975 and be­came a full-fledged man­u­fac­ture in 2006. It pro­duces its com­plex move­ments in-house. CLAIM TO FAME Its ex­per­tise lies in ret­ro­grade dis­plays, moon-phase in­di­ca­tors and chrono­graphs, such as the ML 106 move­ment, Mem­oire 1 and Grande Com­pli­ca­tion (2008). WHAT’S HOT The Mas­ter­piece Squelette, which gives a mod­ern take on tra­di­tional skele­ton­i­sa­tion watches with satin and brushed fin­ish­ing in­stead of over­wrought en­grav­ings on the ML134 hand­wound move­ment. RETAILS AT Mas­ter­piece Time & Jewels, Watches of Switzer­land, Acube Time­less and Fook Hing Trad­ing Co.
