Description

The chic aura exuded by contemporary gentlemen is based on respect for rules, as well as refined transgression of the latter. With its offset small seconds appearing at 7 o’clock, a signature feature of the Twist series within the L.U.C collection, the L.U.C XPS Twist QF in ethically certified “Fairmined” white gold – issued in a 250-piece limited edition – opts for controlled eccentricity and elegant asymmetry. A slim fit on the wrist, rich textures, high-quality production and an ethical dimension: nothing is lacking here, not even a touch of extravagance.

Movement

Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.26-L self-winding mechanical calibre oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a 65-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology: a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels. Bearing the seal of the Fleurier Quality Foundation and certified as a chronometer by the COSC, this represents a particularly remarkable technical feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick.

Design

An original take on Haute Horlogerie

Haute Horlogerie principles are based on symmetry, an aesthetic order to which the eye responds instinctively. L.U.C XPS Twist QF expresses itself in a different way. This ultra-thin luxury watch plays with the subtly offset crown and small seconds, without forgetting the fundamental qualities of the L.U.C. luxury watch collection.
