With new dials and a case with revised details, the L.U.C XPS collection is growing discreetly, in its most refined version to date. It owes its modesty to the finishing touches and the sense of detail specific to L.U.C. Multiple variations of material and colour make the new L.U.C XPS a collection where everyone will find the piece to decorate their wrist in line with their style. In its 18-carat rose gold version with a 40 mm diameter, the L.U.C XPS sports an elegant satin-brushed sunburst silver dial. With a COSC-certified chronometer and an automatic winding movement, the L.U.C 96.12-L benefits from Chopard's Twin technology and provides a comfortable power reserve of 65 hours. It is wound by a 22-carat gold micro-rotor and its thickness is just 7.2 mm, ideal for wearing under a cuff. This genuine high watchmaking piece is for contemporary gentlemen who love exceptional objects.

A blend of heritage and modernity

In the midst of the 1990s, when traditional watchmaking was striving to recover from the sweeping influence of the quartz crisis, Chopard Co-President, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele created a workshop responsible for developing the first in-house calibre to pay tribute to the legacy of the Maison's founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Named L.U.C 96.01-L, the automatic micro-rotor movement, versatile and unrivalled at the time, marked the birth of Chopard Manufacture and the L.U.C. luxury watch collection.
