Maurice de Mauriac has once again pushed the boundaries of traditional watchmaking with a clever new piece that looks like a cross between a ships porthole and a flying saucer. Their latest piece, the Pillow Watch, emerges as a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation, blending architectural beauty with solid functionality.

For fans of titanium the Pillow Watch offers two choices. The watch is available in both titanium and DLC-coated titanium, it presents a perfect balance of diamond-hard durability and featherlight comfort. This combination ensures that the Pillow Watch stands as an ideal companion for those who move through life with a dynamic pace.

In an ode to the connoisseurs of time who appreciate the warmth and evolving beauty of metals, Maurice de Mauriac introduces the bronze version of the Pillow Watch. Unlike its titanium counterparts, the bronze variant promises to weave the passage of time into its very essence, developing a unique patina that reflects the personal journey of its wearer. It’s more than a watch; it’s a piece of art that ages with grace.

The collaboration with Basel designer Fabian Schwaerzler has resulted in a dial that is both profound and visually captivating. Adorned with luminous Superluminova blocks, the dial transcends the realm of brutalism and steps confidently into modernity. This thoughtful design ensures that the Pillow Watch is not only a tool for measuring time but also a beacon in the darkness, guiding its wearer through the hours with clarity and elegance.

With the Pillow Watch, Maurice de Mauriac doesn’t merely introduce a new shape into its collection. It unveils a vision that marries the softness of rounded contours with the raw, unfiltered beauty of brutalism. This watch is a declaration of the brand’s ability to evolve, to embrace the future while staying rooted in the craftsmanship that has defined its past.

The Pillow Watch is more than a timepiece; it’s a journey through time and space, a fusion of the enduring and the ephemeral. It invites wearers to explore the depth of their own stories, mirrored in the evolving patina of bronze or the steadfastness of titanium. In the world of Maurice de Mauriac, time is not just measured; it’s celebrated, contemplated, and, most importantly, worn with undeniable style.
