  • The L.U.C 8HF Power Control in ceramic and titanium boasts the chronometer-certified high-frequency L.U.C Calibre 01.09-L. Beating at 57,600 vibrations per hour (8 Hz), this means significant improvement in the calibre's precision timekeeping properties, particularly in rate resumption and stability. Its avant-garde design contrasts black ceramic with touches of red and a DLC-coated titanium bezel, while its case back features a glass positioned just above the high-frequency escapement. This 250-piece limited series is in a league all its own.
