Description

L.U.C 1860 Flying Tourbillon
Ref. Number: 161990-0001
Twenty-five years after the first model in the L.U.C collection, Chopard houses its innovative flying tourbillon Calibre L.U.C 96.24-L in the ultra-thin case of its first L.U.C 1860 watch. In doing so, the Maison preserves the optimal proportions of its historical model with a 36.5 mm diameter and measuring only 8.2 mm thick. The new L.U.C 1860 Flying Tourbillon model is crafted in ethical 18-carat yellow gold and features an elegant hand-guilloché dial in 18-carat yellow gold. The transparent case-back enabling a view of its unique movement is protected by an elegant cover carefully engraved on the inside with a unique beehive motif. Chopard is the only Manufacture whose flying tourbillon watches are both chronometer-certified and bear the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark: the L.U.C 1860 Flying Tourbillon model belongs to this category of rare timepieces. It is issued in an exclusive 10-piece limited series.

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.
