Ateliers deMonaco receives Master seal from Swiss authorities

The journey to establish a brand in the highest segments of watch making has several milestones along the way. And there is no other country more strict when it comes to protecting quality and reputation of the watch industry than Switzerland. So, the fact that a Monaco based brand received the “Poiçon de Maître” today from the Swiss authorities is another exciting milestone in our journey to establish a new haute-de-gamme watch brand. Importantly, it makes us even more convinced that our unwavering commitment to the highest quality will be the foundation of long term success.


The seal that is deposited will be the abbreviation of our brand – dMc – captured in the Monaco Diamond armour.


And as we are very proud of the seal, all our 18K gold watches will have our own and recognized Master seal from now on!

Once the first will be stamped, we will let you know & show!

Ateliers deMonaco recognized during GTE 2012



The Geneva Time exhibition is held from 15 – 20 January in the Espace Hippomène in Geneve, the watch exhibition dedicated to those few and independent craftsmen that still master the art of making time.


Highlight of the show so far was the recognition that our QP-EZ-Adjust was voted among the best 3 watches during the GTE Superwatch awards. “The QP is our own in-house developed and patented Perpetual Calendar with EaZy adjust system – with one simple push on the crown you can change the function between time – date – day – week- month and year, and if you have found the mode you want to change, simply turn the crown and adjust. This innovation will make something very cumbersome, very manageable for even the most technically challenged – EZ!” as stated by a proud Pim Koeslag, Master watchmaker at Ateliers deMonaco

“It is exciting to see that true innovation and simplification is brought into the world of high end complications again, and this new Perpetual calendar is among the best in years” as stated by a jury member.

A good start of the year!
