Chopard has unveiled its new majestic creation - the Ladies Diamond Quattro Tourbillon. The luxurious timepiece unveils the most prestigious watchmaking complication in an exquisite diamond setting.
The 42mm case of the Ladies Diamond Quattro Tourbillon is crafted from white or rose gold. The dial and case of the Chopard ladies' watch sparkles with round brilliant or baguette cut diamonds.
The bezel and winding crown sparkle with 56 baguette diamonds (3.61 carats), while the flanks, lugs, and strap attachments are paved with 309 pave-set round brilliants (3.08 carats).
The dial is completed with blued sword hands and the polished 18K gold Chopard symbol, revealing a superb combination of 103 round brilliants, 49 baguette cuts, and just one ruby.
The Chopard Ladies Diamond Quattro Tourbillon accommodates a manually-wound movement - the in-house Chopard L.U.C 4T Caliber, a masterwork by itself, produced at the manufactory in Fleurier, and assembled in Geneva.
The Chopard movement incorporates unique technical elements, including the "Quattro" system. The system represents two sets of stacked mainspring barrels to provide a 9-day power reserve. The tourbillon cage turns on its axis once a minute, bearing the balance wheel, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The balance wheel uses the proprietary "Variner" inertia blocks to allow perfect fine tuning of the rate.
Each Chopard L.U.C 4T Caliber has won the COSC-chronometer certification, a distinction very few modern tourbillon movements may boast today.
The power reserve indicator is found in the upper part of the dial, featuring a ruby to mark the "low" side of the scale.
A sapphire crystal exhibition case back will fascinate true connoisseurs of watchmaking with a view of the meticulous manual finishing - Cotes de Geneve on the bridges, anglage polish on the parts' edges, and polished and beveled screw and jewel settings. The Chopard L.U.C 4T is crowned with the Geneva Seal hallmark.
The watch is 30-meter water-resistant.
The sophisticated timepiece embraces the wrist with a white or pink alligator leather strap, being fitted with an 18K gold clasp pave-set with diamonds.
The Chopard Ladies Diamond Quattro Tourbillon will be available in a limited edition of 25 pieces.
