Description

Since 2013, Chopard has dedicated a luxury watch from its L.U.C. Haute Horlogerie collection to the sign of each Lunar zodiac year. This ethical rose gold watch is based on the L.U.C XP extra-flat watches, with a dial decorated using the Urushi Maki-e technique - a combination of lacquer and gold powder - in a highly symbolic setting, and in a limited series of 88 pieces. This trend is embodied in 2023, the Year of the Rabbit, through an exceptional watch made of ethical 18-carat rose gold: the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rabbit model.

Movement

Entirely developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops and a COSC-certified chronometer, the self-winding mechanical L.U.C 96.17-L movement beats to a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and possesses a power reserve of approximately 65 hours thanks to Twin technology, a system invented by Chopard combining two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable technical achievement in view of the extreme slenderness of the movement at just 3.3 mm of thickness.
