Maurice Lacroix is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in the Canton of Jura and headquartered in Zurich. Since 1989, when Maurice Lacroix bought the Queloz case manufacture, all watch casings are made on-site. The "Masterpiece Le Chronographe," equipped by the ML106 movement, was released by Maurice Lacroix in 2006. They have released a number of manufacturing movements since then, including an automated movement in 2011. The size of the watches has increased as a result of the change to manufacturing movements, and they now have a more "modern" or "industrial" appearance.
