Elementary without being basic, devoid of artifice and yet brimming with contrasts, the new L.U.C XP timepiece embodies the purity of design that characterises the L.U.C. collection. Its natural, casual elegance lies in the details. The texture of its dial, the virgin wool of its strap, the brilliance of its hour-markers, along with its slender shape, all reflect the tradition of Savile Row tailors. For the contemporary gentleman, L.U.C XP is like a blue cashmere flannel suit, worn with a Sea Island cotton shirt and an Ancient Madder tie: a modern classic for men of taste.
Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.53-L self-winding mechanical movement oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a 58-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology: a patented Chopard system that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick.
