The peony, with its lusciously rounded bloom, has been a long-term inspiration for Chopard’s creativity. Since 2014, it has enjoyed a starring role in the L.U.C XP Esprit de Fleurier Peony series: a collection of breathtaking, limited-edition Fine Watchmaking timepieces celebrating the variety of artistic crafts at the heart of the Maison’s creative approach. For the new edition in ethical 18-carat rose gold limited to 8 pieces, Chopard is adds the art of Grand Feu Enamel to its pool of in-house Métiers d’Art practices. In a design inspired by the antique decorative pocket watches found in the L.U.CEUM, Chopard’s museum in Fleurier, Chopard’s enameling artisan has created a vibrant image of pink peonies blooming against a light green background. Visible through an open case back, the L.U.C 96.23-L mechanical self-winding movement is also beautifully decorated with Fleurisanne, an engraving technique perfectly mastered by a talented in-house artisan.

CHOPARD BOUTIQUE EXCLUSIVITY:
Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.23-L self-winding mechanical movement oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a 65-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology: a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick. The movement is wound by a 22K gold micro-rotor. Engraved by hand using the Fleurisanne engraving technique, this movement demonstrates Chopard's passion for Artistic Crafts.
L.U.C men's watches epitomize the highest standard of Swiss watchmaking. The steps involved in making L.U.C watches are all performed at the Maison’s Geneva and Fleurier workshops. These exceptional timepieces stemming from meticulous workmanship meet the aspirations of the contemporary gentleman.
