Made and assembled entirely at its manufacture in Fleurier, Chopard’s L.U.C collection is the maison’s expression of haute horlogerie at its best. All L.U.C calibres are COSC-certified chronometers while their hand-finishing, however superlative, have to pass the approval of Poincon de Geneve or Qualite Fleurier. Given such strict quality criteria, not to mention their limited production each year, it is no surprise why L.U.C watches are in such high demand. This year’s releases only whets appetite further.
The name says it all – L.U.C All-In-One packs into its 46mm case a 33mm movement that operates a tourbillon and a host of calendar functions including a moonphase. And to fit them all in, there are two faces.
On the case side, you’ll find the tourbillon at ‘6’ with small seconds indication. There are also a perpetual calendar with date (at ‘12’), month and leap year (‘3’), and day of the week with 24-hour indication (‘9’). The solid gold dial is decorated with guilloche motif radiating from the date aperture.
Turn the watch around to discover the rest of the calendar functions including the equation of time, sunrise and sunset set to Geneva time, and an astronomical orbital moonphase, as well as the power reserve (maximum 7 days thanks to four barrels).
The watch is available in two versions, each limited to 10 pieces: platinum with blue dial and 18k rose gold with verdigris dial.
