  • Since 2013, Chopard has dedicated a Swiss watch in its L.U.C Haute Horlogerie collection to the sign of each Chinese zodiac year. This luxury watch is designed on the basis of the L.U.C XP ultra-thin model, featuring a dial adorned using the Urushi Maki-e technique – combining lacquering and gold dust – within a highly symbolic stage-setting and systematically produced in an 88-piece limited series. In 2022, the Year of the Tiger, this tradition is embodied in an exceptional watch made from ethical 18-carat rose gold: the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Tiger.
