Movement

The L.U.C Full Strike Tourbillon model takes its place among the most sophisticated horological complications and the and most innovative luxury watches ever created to date. It follows in the footsteps of Chopard's L.U.C Full Strike minute repeater watches, of which the first ethical rose gold edition was awarded the “Aiguille d'Or” best-in-show award at the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. These Swiss luxury watches feature a unique Chopard-patented system in which the gongs and sapphire crystal form a single entity, which resonates in its entirety to produce the chime. At 6 o'clock beneath the hand indicating the seconds , the watchmakers of Chopard Manufacture have installed the tourbillon of L.U.C Caliber 08.02-L , contributing to the extreme precision of the movement and to obtaining the Chronometer certification issued by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

Technical prodigy

In keeping with Karl-Friedrich Scheufele’s uncompromising vision, the L.U.C Haute Horlogerie collection is enriched with a prodigious new technical feat. Endorsed by virtuoso brothers Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, the acoustic richness of the L.U.C Full Strike Tourbillon watch thus achieves an exceptional level of quality, while its perfect homogeneity makes it an unparalleled tourbillon watch combining a stunning conceptual challenge with supremely accomplished execution.
Tourbillon Watch Dial
Ethical 18-carat rose gold

Fascinating dial openings

Opening to reveal the two complications, the dial with its base plate in ethical 18-carat rose gold features a ruthenium grey-coloured hand-guilloché floral pattern. The first cut-out between 9 and 11 o'clock highlights the two mirror-polished steel hammers whose striking generates the chime. The other, at 6 o'clock, reveals the tourbillon of the L.U.C 08.02-L calibre. A cross-through sapphire crystal tourbillon bridge is a nod to the patented monobloc sapphire technology inherent in the full strike series.

Two majestic complications

Impressive accomplishment

The mechanical hand wound L.U.C 08.02-L calibre powering the L.U.C Full Strike Tourbillon watch is the first example of a Chopard minute repeater being combined with a tourbillon, thus contributing to the movement’s extreme precision. The highly accomplished level of finishing on both case and movement has earned this timepiece the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.
