Precise technology, meticulous appearance and minimalist style. The L.U.C XPS watch with these characteristics is undoubtedly a classic. This year, Chopard is wearing a classic 18K rose gold coat with a silver silk satin dial.
Condensing a self-winding mechanical movement, a dual barrel, and a 65-hour power reserve into an ultra-thin case is a remarkable watchmaking feat. The master watchmakers at Chopard Fleurier watch factory have successfully developed miniature rotors, turning all this into reality. The watch designer also dedicated a perfect design: an ultra-thin case with a long diameter (39.50 mm) and a flat mirror. The mechanical achievements combined with the appearance design gave birth to a handsome and elegant watch with a light and agile appearance, with a perfect balance, and won the ultra-thin watch crown at the 2006 Geneva Watch Awards.
The perfect combination of aesthetics and technology
In order to satisfy many watch lovers who love mechanical beauty, the LUC XPS watch is designed with a transparent sapphire case back. Through it, you can see the exquisite operation of the LUC 96.12-L (LUC 12.96) movement.
