Description

L.U.C XP Skeletec
Ref. Number: 161984-1001
The L.U.C XP Skeletec is among the world’s thinnest and most perfectly crafted self-winding skeleton watches, and it now takes on new elegance for Chopard Manufacture’s 25th anniversary. Just 7.2-millimeter thick, it has been widely admired since its 2012 launch for its combination of technical superiority and artisanal finesse. In renewing its design, Chopard Manufacture brings fresh elegance to this masterpiece, with an even more open dial to showcase the L.U.C 96.17-S movement, a refined aesthetic, and a case made of ethical 18-carat white gold. Created entirely in-house, with a skeletonization executed by hand at the Maison’s Fleurier workshops, the L.U.C XP Skeletec is one of the most exquisitely understated expressions of Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking mastery.

Identity

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.
