Description
Proclaimed a “Living National Treasure” by the Japanese authorities, artist Kiichiro Masumura has created this unique dial for Chopard based on the time-honoured lacquering techniques of Urushi and Maki-e. Marrying ancestral craftsmanship with the highest degree of Swiss watchmaking, this majestic work of art portrays the Genbu, a cross between snake and tortoise symbolising the element of water according to Chinese natural science. Magnificently showcased within the understated lines of the ultra-thin L.U.C XP in 18-carat rose gold, this exceptional timepiece is equipped with the mechanical self-winding L.U.C Calibre 96.17-L.

The mechanical self-winding L.U.C Calibre 96.17-L beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz), boasts a 65-hour power reserve thanks to the Twin technology, a Chopard-patented system combining two coaxial barrels and representing a truly remarkable technical feat in light of the extreme slenderness of the 3.3 mm-thick movement.
