  • Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.53-L self-winding mechanical movement oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a 58-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology: a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick.
