With the new L.U.C Flying T Twin Baguette timepiece, Chopard presents a new watch featuring its new flying tourbillon movement.

Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard's Haute Horlogerie workshops and chronometer-certified by the COSC, the L.U.C 96.24-L mechanical self-winding movement is the first automatic flying tourbillon calibre developed by Chopard Manufacture. It beats at a frequency of 25,200 vibrations per hour (3.5 Hz) and has a 65-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology, a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels. The latter represent a particularly remarkable technical feat given the extreme thinness of the movement, which is just 3.3 mm thick. This movement bearing the 'Poinçon de Genève' quality hallmark is wound by means of a 22-carat gold micro-rotor.
L.U.C men's watches epitomize the highest standard of Swiss watchmaking. The steps involved in making L.U.C watches are all performed at the Maison’s Geneva and Fleurier workshops. These exceptional timepieces stemming from meticulous workmanship meet the aspirations of the contemporary gentleman.
