Dominique-Marie Pibouleau founded MHR Mahara in 1987.  Pibouleau created MHR dials based on pre-World War II aircrafts with the over sized 3, 6, 9, and 12 hour markers.  In addition to the larger numbers, MHR offered various dials colors that became extremely popular especially in Italy, Japan, and the United States.  Some favorite models of the collectors were the MHR Sparviero, MHR Britannia, and MHR Red Devil.  In 2000, Franck Muller Watchland acquired MHR (Mahara Montres Geneva).
