  • Entirely developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard Fine Watchmaking workshops and a COSC-certified chronometer, the self-winding mechanical L.U.C 96.17-L movement beats to a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and possesses a power reserve of approximately 65 hours thanks to Twin technology, a system invented by Chopard combining two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable technical achievement in view of the extreme slenderness of the movement at just 3.3 mm of thickness.
