Chopard L.U.C XPS Watch - Dedicated to 125th Anniversary of Poincon de Geneve Quality Hallmark

Nov 11, 2011
To mark the 125th anniversary of the “Poincon de Geneve” quality hallmark, the house of Chopard has launched its new L.U.C XPS limited edition watch.


With its issue restricted just to 125 pieces, the novelty offers an 18-karat rose gold case. It measures 39.50mm in diameter and is 7.13mm thick. The new Chopard watch is equipped with an 18-karat rose gold winding crown with L.U.C logo. On its front side, the case is armed with a glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The same glass is used for its back part. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 30 meters.

The model shows off a brown sunburst satin-brushed dial, struck with “Poincon de Geneve” logo. It is equipped with gold-toned hour-markers, pointed at by central gold-toned Dauphine-type hour and minute hands. A gold-toned baton-type small seconds hand makes its rounds in a counter at 6 o’clock. The display of the new Chopard L.U.C XPS watch also offers a date indication at 3 o’clock.

Driving the functions is a mechanical self-winding L.U.C 96.01-L (L.U.C 1.96) movement, built on 29 jewels and officially certified as a chronometer by the COSC. Its diameter is 27.40mm and its thickness is 3.30mm. The caliber incorporates bridges adorned with Cotes de Geneve pattern as well as 2 barrels, which ensure a 65-hour power reserve. The mechanism runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

Keeping the new Chopard watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a hand-sewn matte brown alligator leather strap. It joins to an 18-carat rose gold pin buckle.
