Description
The L.U.C 8HF in titanium boasts the L.U.C. Calibre 01.06-L, the world's first chronometer-certified high-frequency movement. Beating at 57,600 vibrations per hour, this means significant improvement in the calibre's precision timekeeping properties, particularly in rate resumption and stability. With an avant-garde design of titanium monobloc lugs and a matt-finished caseback featuring a glass positioned just above the high-frequency escapement, this 100-piece limited-edition experimental series is in a league all its own.

Movement
The L.U.C Calibre 01.06-L is the first ever movement with a high-frequency escapement to be chronometer-certified by the COSC. Beating at a frequency of 8 Hz, meaning 57,600 vibrations per hour, this mechanical movement was conceived, developed and perfected by Chopard Technologies in Fleurier. In addition to ensuring greater reliability, high frequency – which naturally requires more energy – is in this instance associated with a remarkable 60-hour power reserve generated by a single barrel. In terms of materials, the engineers at Chopard Technologies decided to work with silicon for certain escapement components (impulse-pin, lever, escape wheel) and developed a new means of fixing silicon on steel (patent pending).
