Description

The chic aura exuded by contemporary gentlemen is based on respect for rules, as well as refined transgression of the latter. With its offset small seconds appearing at 7 o’clock, a signature feature of the Twist series within the L.U.C collection, the L.U.C XPS Twist QF in ethically certified “Fairmined” white gold – issued in a 250-piece limited edition – opts for controlled eccentricity and elegant asymmetry. A slim fit on the wrist, rich textures, high-quality production and an ethical dimension: nothing is lacking here, not even a touch of extravagance.

Movement

Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.26-L self-winding mechanical caliber 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. Bearing the seal of the Fleurier Quality Foundation and certified as a chronometer by the COSC, this represents a particularly remarkable technical feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick.

This ultra-thin luxury watch plays with the subtly offset crown and small seconds, without forgetting the fundamental qualities of the L.U.C. luxury watch collection.
