Upon request
  • It has become an annual tradition for Chopard Manufacture to honor Mexican culture with a timepiece specially dedicated to the Day of the Dead festivities. This year, a one-of-a-kind L.U.C Full Strike minute repeater model appears adorned with Mexican motifs. The L.U.C Full Strike 'Día de los Muertos' is crafted in ethical 18k white gold, with an entirely hand-engraved case topped by a bezel set with baguette-cut sapphires and framing a dial with the iconic Calavera skull symbol. It is also equipped with L.U.C Caliber 08.01-L, through which Chopard Manufacture has been demonstrating its perfect mastery of the minute repeater mechanism since 2016. Its sapphire gongs produce a sound that is unique in the world, boasting a purity and clarity hailed in 2017 by the “Aiguille d'Or” best-in-show prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. The combination of this regal horological complication with such an advanced and original design is a first, embodying a degree of excellence rewarded by the extremely prestigious ‘Poinçon de Genève’ quality hallmark. The L.U.C Full Strike 'Día de los Muertos' thus reveals another facet of the L.U.C collection: a capacity for boldness, for springing surprises and for pushing Haute Horlogerie to new limits.

  • Fully developed, produced and assembled in the Chopard High Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 08.01-L caliber 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 being certified Poinçon de Genève quality and holding a COSC certification as a Chronometer, this movement enabled the development of a unique on-demand striking system, as well as four patents.
