  • Fully developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops, the self-winding mechanical movement L.U.C. 96.29-L is the first movement by Maison Chopard to feature a rotating disk displaying the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. It provides the watch with exceptional timekeeping performances and a comfortable 65-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology, a system patented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable technical achievement in light of the extreme slenderness of its 3.97 mm-thick movement.
