VISION: MARCH LA.B PHILOSOPHY

March LA.B is a tribute to the timeless elegance of vintage watches. Our self-imposed creative requirement is to design timeless styles that will transmit to future generations, following the example set by the most exceptional watches of the past decades. The Mage–Marhic tandem focuses on that aesthetic concept to reveal outstanding timepieces, which are minimal, elegant and lower-profile with balanced proportions complimentary with the style of today’s urban dandy.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS

In order to underscore the extreme precision of their designs, the creators of French brand, March LA.B has naturally partnered with renowned members of the watch-making industry. After an initial Franco-Swiss manufacturing collaboration, March has shifted its course to claim their «French touch»; aligning the brand with the heritage of traditional French watchmaking. By partnering with prestigious French assemblers and leather goods artisans in the area of Morteau, March LA.B has retained its scrupulous adherence to the principles of local watchmaking culture: technical expertise, reliability, and accuracy.

WATCHMAKER MECHANIC

March LA.B timepieces are assembled by master watchmakers who have perfected the complexities of their craft. Their expertise ensures precise control and technical excellence. All components are constructed, tested and adjusted with painstaking detail in order to ensure the utmost quality. The custom MIYOTA 9015 movement is the heart of the March LA.B automatic collection which have a two years warranty. This perpetual precise and reliable engine is considered by specialists to be the most valuable for its cost.

STRAP WORKMANSHIP

Once assembled, the March LA.B timepieces are perfectly paired with a variety of exotic and genuine leather straps: stingray from Thailand, lizard Tupinambis Merianae from Argentina, alligator from Louisiana, Astra calf leather from France. All straps are handmade using classical techniques which are recognized and praised worldwide by the most respected luxury brands. For the last thirty years, these craftsmen have merged traditional and cutting edge technologies while fashioning straps with artisanal methods. The result of these labors yield leather straps that embody distinction and heritage.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

March LA.B dedicates rigorous attention to a wide range of subtleties, decorations and components that celebrate a strong and unique identity: finely worked crown placed at 4 o’clock, engraved case back, green signature highlight revealed through discreet touches, a bold case treatment with contrasting polished and handbrushed steel, customized dates and locking buckles that reflect the retro spirit of the brand.

MARCH LA.B CRÉATEUR ENGAGÉ

Le temps et la montre structurent la vie. La couleur verte la symbolise. Ce code couleur est récurrent dans les créations de la marque. Le fil vert de MARCH LA.B exprime la volonté d’aider les structures œuvrant pour la prévention du suicide, un fléau social encore trop tabou qui concerne particulièrement les fondateurs de la marque.

Détruisant des milliers de vies - nombre d’adolescents - et familles tous les ans, le suicide a imposé une forme d’omerta, son meilleur allié étant le silence.

En reversant 1% de ses bénéfices à des associations aidant à la prévention du suicide, MARCH LA.B souhaite combattre ce silence qui tue.

Pour nos enfants, nos familles, nos amis et nos prochains…

THE GREEN LINE

March LA.B is socially conscious. Time and the watch structure life. The green color symbolizes life. This color code is recurrent in the brand’s creations.

The March LA.B Green Line expresses the will to assist associations in the work of suicide prevention, a socially taboo affliction that particularly concerns the lives of those involved with the brand. Suicide imposes public denial, and the danger of silence that accompanies it. By donating 1% of its benefits to associations helping suicide prevention, March LA.B wishes to fight this silence that kills. For our children, our families, our friends and our neighbors.
