L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rabbit
Ref. Number: 161902-5077
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.

L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rabbit


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.
