Ref. Number: 131944-5005

Description

The peony, with its lusciously rounded bloom, has been a long-term inspiration for Chopard’s creativity. Since 2014, it has enjoyed a starring role in the L.U.C XP Esprit de Fleurier Peony series: a collection of breathtaking, limited-edition Fine Watchmaking timepieces celebrating the variety of artistic crafts at the heart of the Maison’s creative approach. For the new edition in ethical 18-carat rose gold limited to 8 pieces, Chopard is adds the art of Grand Feu Enamel to its pool of in-house Métiers d’Art practices. In a design inspired by the antique decorative pocket watches found in the L.U.CEUM, Chopard’s museum in Fleurier, Chopard’s enameling artisan has created a vibrant image of pink peonies blooming against a light green background. Visible through an open case back, the L.U.C 96.23-L mechanical self-winding movement is also beautifully decorated with Fleurisanne, an engraving technique perfectly mastered by a talented in-house artisan.

Movement

Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.23-L self-winding mechanical movement 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, a particularly remarkable feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick. The movement is wound by a 22K gold micro-rotor. Engraved by hand using the Fleurisanne engraving technique, this movement demonstrates Chopard's passion for Artistic Crafts.

Artistic craft

Grand Feu enamel dial

A decorative technique practiced since the 17th century, Grand Feu enamelling, one of the most prestigious traditional crafts in Swiss watchmaking, is faithfully perpetuated by Chopard and a handful of master artisans.
Using skills passed down through generations by each artist, the enameler needs at least one full week of work to create each dial of one of the eight L.U.C XP Esprit de Fleurier Peony diamond watches for women.
