  • Fully developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard High Watchmaking workshops, this COSC-certified chronometer, the self-winding L.U.C 96.01-L mechanical movement, is the first calibre developed by the Chopard Manufacture in 1996. It oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and offers a 65-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology, a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable technical achievement in light of the extreme slenderness of its 3.3 mm-thick movement. With the Seal of Geneva, this movement is wound by a micro-rotor in 22K gold.
