L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph
Ref. Number: 168556-3002
Behind its classic, elegant appearance, the L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph is a highly technical and sophisticated watch. Its hand-wound chronograph caliber features technically advanced construction and a particularly high level of finishing, which has earned it the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark. This exceptional Swiss watch, meeting the highest standards of Haute Horlogerie, beats to the rhythm of the COSC-certified chronometer caliber 03.07-L. Its roots in the tradition of luxury chronograph watches are the result of a comprehensive approach - aesthetic, technical and historical - but also of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele's personal passion for traditional watchmaking at its purest.

L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph


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.
