  • Chopard is adding an exceptional item to its precious collection of L.U.C XP Urushi timepieces which each year pays tribute to one of the 12 signs of the zodiac. The ancestral Japanese art of Urushi is being used as inspiration to create a watch marking the start of the traditional Chinese calendar’s Year of the Pig. Regarded as generous, perspicacious and fun-loving, this symbolic animal lends its cheerful face to an exceptionally refined creation driven by an ultra-thin L.U.C movement: Caliber 96.17-L.

  • Entirely developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops and a COSC-certified chronometer, the self-winding mechanical L.U.C 96.17-L movement beats to a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and possesses a power reserve of approximately 65 hours thanks to Twin technology, a system invented by Chopard combining two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable technical achievement in view of the extreme slenderness of the movement at just 3.3 mm of thickness.
