Description

L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru
Ref. Number: 162296-5001
Chopard enriches its range with a barrel-shaped chronometer in 18k rose gold, designed like an exceptional wine, leaning on the best of Chopard watch-making expertise. Ultra-thin, gracefully curved and displaying rare elegance, the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru is one of few tonneau-shaped watches to have an automatic winding movement of the same shape, the L.U.C 97.01-L. It is a reference to the pocket watches created by Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Just as a grand cru wine is classified and certified, the excellent craftsmanship is anointed with the Geneva Seal and its chronometer-grade precision by the COSC. Fitted with Chopard's Twin technology, it offers a comfortable 65 hours of autonomy. Unique in many ways, the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru is for the distinguished man who collects great wines and exceptional watches: a true modern-day epicurean, the contemporary Chopard gentleman.

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.
