Admire Chopard L.U.C Triple Certification Tourbillon Watch

Sep 26, 2011
Chopard is proud to introduce its new L.U.C Triple Certification Tourbillon watch. It is the first timepiece in the world, which comes with three most prestigious certifications of Swiss watchmaking - COSC, Poincon de Geneve and Fleurier Quality Foundation.


A top achievement for the brand, each certification issued is governed by certain criteria. The first body mainly estimates the movement precision; the second focuses on aesthetics and technological details of the finishing, and the third one is aimed at reliability of the model.

The new Chopard watch is executed in a 43mm case, sculptured in 18-carat rose gold. The massive winding crown at 3 oclock is also done in 18-carat rose gold and marked with a "L.U.C" logo. The top of the case is shielded by a high-grade anti-glare sapphire crystal. The model is also equipped with a see-through case-back. The case provides 50-meter water-resistance.

The timepiece comes equipped with a silver-toned grained dial, embossed with a "Poincon-de-Geneve" logo. Completed with rhodium-plated Roman numerals, the face of the new Chopard L.U.C Triple Certification Tourbillon watch ensures central hours and minutes.

The small seconds are allied with a tourbillon mechanism, featured in an opening at 6 oclock. It is counterbalanced by a power reserve indicator at 12 oclock. All the hands on the dial are rhodium-plated.

Breathing life into the functions is a hand-wound L.U.C 02.13-L (L.U.C 1.02QF) tourbillion movement. Its bridges are graced with a Cotes-de-Geneve finish. The caliber is embellished with 33 jewels and beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Integrated within the movement are 4 barrels (quattro technology), which deliver an impressive 216-hour power reserve.

The new Chopard watch is worn on a hand-sewn shiny brown alligator leather strap with a cognac-colored alligator leather lining. It joins to an 18-carat rose gold pin buckle. The issue of the model is limited to 100 pieces.
