Spirotechnique was formed in 1947 to develop the patent for the first AQUA-LUNG regulator invented by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Emile Gagnan. Cousteau was a French Naval Officer in WWII and helped create France’s commando frogman unit. Cousteau was a member of the Boards of La Spirotechnique, U.S. Divers Co., Inc. and their parent company Aqua-Lung International.

Auricoste have created a watch for La Spirotechnique.

Today, La Spirotechnique gave them again all their trust to creat again this mythical watch.

March Lab is a young french watch company that was born from the idea of two friends who define the March Lab watches as « the raw elegance of simplicity ».

The watches are made in Switzerland from the best mouvments available.

The design takes inspiration in the 50’s but when you look at them closer, they are just modern.

We love the AM3 Shelby « 50th Anniversary », a « full black » version of March’s ticker released in homage to the automotive designer and racing driver Carroll Shelby.
