With the new L.U.C Flying T Twin timepiece, Chopard presents a new watch equipped with its flying tourbillon movement. As technical as it is aesthetically pleasing, it is also distinguished by its remarkable appearance: a blue dial in hand-guilloché gold, impeccable proportions and an ultra-thin case in ethical 18-carat white gold make this an exceptional addition to the L.U.C. collection. This extremely refined 50-piece limited series designed for contemporary gentlemen who are connoisseurs of fine watchmaking bears the 'Poinçon de Genève' quality hallmark and is chronometer-certified by the COSC.

L.U.C Flying T Twin

Identity

A blend of heritage and modernity

In the midst of the 1990s, when traditional watchmaking was striving to recover from the sweeping influence of the quartz crisis, Chopard Co-President, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele created a workshop responsible for developing the first in-house calibre to pay tribute to the legacy of the Maison's founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Named L.U.C 96.01-L, the automatic micro-rotor movement, versatile and unrivalled at the time, marked the birth of Chopard Manufacture and the L.U.C. luxury watch collection.
