L.U.C FULL STRIKE

42.5 MM, MANUAL, CERTIFIED FAIRMINED ETHICAL WHITE GOLD

Ref. Number:
161947-1001
  • For the second time, Chopard launches a minute repeater watch. The L.U.C Full Strike now appears in a new set of colours with a case in “Fairmined” certified non rhodium-plated 18-carat white gold, framing a silver-coloured dial. This exceptional timepiece chimes the hours, quarters and minutes on transparent crystal gongs. These sapphire rings are an integral part of the watch glass, which creates a perfect loudspeaker faithfully to diffuse the chimes of the hammers striking the sapphire. The sapphire rings create a flawless crystal-clear sound, with an open worked dial and bearing the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.

  • Entirely developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 08.01-L calibre is the first manually wound minute repeater movement in the world to feature a striking system whose gongs and sapphire crystal form a single monobloc. It boasts two barrels: one for the hour, which guarantees the watch a 60-hour power reserve, and the other for the striking mechanism, which enables it to sound the longest time indication, 12:59, twelve times. In addition to bearing the Poinçon de Genève and holding COSC certification as a Chronometer, this movement enabled the development of a unique on-demand striking system, as well as four patents.
