Description

Elementary without being basic, devoid of artifice and yet brimming with contrasts, the new L.U.C XP timepiece embodies the purity of design that characterises the L.U.C. collection. Its natural, casual elegance lies in the details. The texture of its dial, the virgin wool of its strap, the brilliance of its hour-markers, along with its slender shape, all reflect the tradition of Savile Row tailors. For the contemporary gentleman, L.U.C XP is like a blue cashmere flannel suit, worn with a Sea Island cotton shirt and an Ancient Madder tie: a modern classic for men of taste.

Movement

Behind the L.U.C’s lively dial is Chopard L.U.C 96.53-L, a high-end, ultra-thin automatic caliber designed and assembled in the Chopard Manufacture workshops in Fleurier. Thanks to the Maison's Twin Technology, whereby two co-axial barrels work in sequence, the movement delivers a 58-hour power reserve. It also features a balance spring with a flat terminal curve, mounted on a balance wheel oscillating at 28,800vph (4hz). The movement’s bridges are beautifully hand-finished with a Côtes de Genève motif. These components, alongside the movement’s tungsten alloy micro-rotor, are visible through a gently tinted sapphire crystal caseback chosen to heighten the sense of offering the wearer a glimpse into a mysterious, endlessly captivating realm.
