Zurich watchmaker, Maurice de Mauriac, has just released new Nato strap colorways (shown on a Chronograph Modern timepiece above). Nato straps look best on sporty timepieces, are extremely comfortable and they are great anytime of the year. And for those of you obsessed with matching your outfits and accessories, they can switched out on the fly if you want a different color to match a different look — no tool required. Available in: 18 mm, 19 mm, 20 mm, 22 mm and 24 mm widths. Check out all the new colors available after the jump.

Maurice de Mauriac has just introduced a 3-hand version of their popular Chronograph Modern. It has applied Arabic numeral hour markers that go from (05 to 60), just like on the chronograph - a distinctive dial design made popular by World War II pilot watches. Functions include hours, minutes, central seconds and day/date at 3 o'clock. Available in 42 mm or 45 mm satin finished stainless steel cases, with flat or domed sapphire crystal (with double anti-glare treatment). Shown with textile strap. The movement is a self-winding chronometer grade ETA 2836-2 that is visible through a clear caseback.
This is the Maurice de Mauriac Zurich Chronograph Modern in a 42 mm x 14 mm satin brushed finish titanium case. We previously reviewed a 45 mm diameter black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) case variant here. The majority of Maurice de Mauriac timepieces come with beautiful satin brushed cases which are - both harder to finish than a typical brushed finish and easier to scratch. Nevertheless, I highly recommend the satin finish as it looks great even with scratches.

During my last trip to Switzerland, I visited my favorite Zurich watch boutique, Maurice de Mauriac. Founded by Daniel Dreifuss over a decade ago, Maurice de Mauriac is a watchmaker, which operates out of a combined atelier (assembly workshop) and retail store. This unconventional format, offers customers a unique bespoke purchase experience.
