New Chopard Watch - L.U.C Tourbillon Tech Steel Wings

May 13, 2008
The Chopard L.U.C Tourbillon Tech Steel Wings is created for lovers of mechanical complications and aesthetic excellence. The openworked dial reveals the complexity and the meticulous finishing of the sophisticated movement beating at the heart of the timepiece.

The watch greatly appeals due to eye-pleasing color combinations. The stylised hour circle distinctively contrasts with the charcoal grey color of the movement. The technical nature of the watch is emphasized with help of blued steel hands and screws.

The tourbillon at 6 o'clock paralazes attention by its clear visibility. The tourbillon is coupled with the seconds hand. You will notice the index power-reserve indication at 3 o'clock.

As a symbol of the dynamic energy of Chopard Manufacture, the tourbillon bridge shape reminds two outstretched bird wings, so interested viewers may enjoy a sweeping view of the carriage in operation.

The L.U.C Calibre 4TT, a mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement, offers reliability and accuracy of a COSC-certified chronometer. The mechanism incorporates L.U.C 'Quattro' technology that comprizes two sets of two stacked barrels. The technology provides a remarkable power reserve of about 216 hours. The movement is beating at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, being equipped with a variable-inertia Variner balance. The bridges are decorated with 'Cotes de Geneve' pattern and black engravings.

The 40.5 mm-diameter case of the Chopard L.U.C Tourbillon Tech Steel Wings is crafted in 18K rose gold. The case construction features a glare-proofed sapphire crystal, a crown bearing the L.U.C logo, and Transparent case-back. The watch boasts 30-metre water-resistance.

The watch embraces the wrist with a crocodile leather strap equipped with an 18K rose gold folding clasp.

Lovers of jewelry watches will surely appreciate a version of the watch with the bezel paved with baguette-cut diamonds.

The L.U.C Tourbillon Tech Steel Wings in 18K rose gold is available in a limited edition of 100 pieces, while the jewelry version comes in a limited edition of just 25 pieces.
