New Chopard Watches for Baselworld 2008

Mar 17, 2008
Simplicity and elegance are the two words to best characterize the new Chopard creation to join the brand's highly successful L.U.C. Haute Horlogerie line.

The new Chopard L.U.C. XP watch features an extra-flat case that will probably make you think of Vacheron Constantin, the brand most famous for its ultra-flat timepieces. The timepiece telling time in hours and minutes is a true technical marvel as its extra-flat case houses L.U.C. 96HM automatic movement that incorporated two superposed barrels and offers an advantage of a 70-hour power reserve. The manufactory-made precision mechanism with 29 jewels is beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The perfectly balanced 39.50mm case of the new Chopard watch is crafted in 18K pink or white gold. The construction has incorporated anti-reflective sapphire crystal and back. The slate grey dial of the Chopard L.U.C. XP fascinates by its timeless appeal. It is completed with four Arabic numerals, hands and applied hour-markers in 18K gold.

The Chopard L.U.C. XP goes on a brown or black hand-sewn alligator strap enhanced with tone-on-tone stitching and fitted with an18K gold buckle engraved with 'Chopard'.

The new Chopard creation finely demonstrates the grand art of simplicity by Chopard.


The new Chopard Happy Sport Mark II Chrono All Black is a monochrome, powerful and minimalist timekeeping creation. The blacker than night timepiece paralyzes the glance with the diamonds whirling around the black dial, as a distinctive touch of sparkle and light.

The case of the new Chopard Happy Sport Mark II Chrono All Black is crafted in black PVD-coated steel. It has incorporated the rotating bezel. The Chopard watch equipped with a quartz movement provides not only hours and minutes but also the date and chronograph functions. The dial of the watch features three chronograph counters for hours, minutes and seconds positioned at 3, 9 and 6 o'clock respectively. The small date window is found between 4 and 5 o'clock.

The Chopard watch embraces the wrist with a black crocodile strap fitted with a polished blackened steel buckle.

The Chopard designers also created a variation of the ladies' watch with a diamond-paved bezel.

The audacious and dynamic watch, created as the quintessence of ultimate chic, is destined to embellish the wrist of an active, sophisticated woman who highly appreciates original accessories of avant-garde design.
