Chopard L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru and L.U.C XPS

Marina Milojević | 09.07.17 | 08:56 PM

The house of Chopard has just released the new L.U.C watches: L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru and L.U.C XPS. The first one is an elegant chronometer rendered in 18-carat rose gold, and presented in an ultra-slim, rounded tonneau-shaped case that measures just 38.5mm by 38.8mm, and is 7.7mm thick.

Chopard L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru

This remarkable new creation is inspired by the historical pocket watches created by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, and named after the distinction given to the finest grades of wine. The vintage line of inspiration is visible in its pure white porcelain type dial bearing black Roman numerals, with a minute track surrounding the center. The small seconds indicator, with a gilded seconds hand, appears at 6 o’clock. The date window is positioned at the bottom of the seconds sub-dial.

The reverse side of the case reveals a sapphire window that allows a glimpse into the 97.01-L Calibre movement. This tonneau-shaped automatic caliber is fitted with a 22ct gold micro-rotor and two stacked barrels, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, for a total of 65 hours of power reserve. The movement is assembled of 197 components, and has 29 jewels. It is also decorated with the most advanced finishing performed in the Manufacture: the bevelling, polishing, circular graining and Côtes de Genève meet the high demands of the Poinçon de Genève criteria.

Chopard L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru, reference number 162296-5001, retails for € 21.970.

Chopard L.U.C XPS

Chopard L.U.C XPS has also been unveiled in a new version that represents the evolution of the L.U.C. XPS collection, with new dials and a case featuring finely reworked details. Just like the first L.U.C XP model that was launched back in 2006, the new L.U.C XPS features an ultra-slim case, a movement with automatic winding via a micro-rotor, as well as an exceptionally elegant dial. Ten years after the first L.U.C XP watch, the new L.U.C XPS arrives in a number of variations of materials and colors, purer and more refined than ever.

The classic Dauphine-type hands are replaced by the fusée Dauphine-type hands, while the hour-markers are shaped like raised and facetted arrows.
