  • A great classic of the L.U.C collection, the L.U.C XPS timepiece is available in two new interpretations which demonstrate the expertise of the craftsmen of emotions at the Chopard Manufacture, both in terms of High Watchmaking and in the art of gem-setting. Without compromising on its sense of streamlining and simplicity, the L.U.C XPS features an extra-slim case in ethical 18-carat gold with a diameter of 40mm topped with a diamond-set bezel. The sunburst dial, in ruthenium grey for the rose gold version and black for the white gold version, is also adorned with elegant hour-markers set with baguette diamonds. Within the watch, the extra-slim self-winding L.U.C 96.12-L certified chronometer movement offers 65 hours of autonomy with two superimposed barrels thanks to Chopard Twin technology. Based on exquisite hand-crafted finishes, the result is a work of the watchmaking precision, humbleness and refinement that Chopard has never ceased to demonstrate for 25 years through the L.U.C collection.

  • Entirely developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops and a COSC-certified chronometer, the self-winding mechanical L.U.C 96.12-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. This movement is wound by a micro-rotor in 22-carat gold.
