Chopard unveils special box set of three watches

By Chris Boyle

ChopardWatchmaker Chopard has unveiled a series of three watches with colored dials and matching straps. The L.U.C XPS watches come presented in a special box set.

Housing a self-winding movement equipped with two barrels ensuring a 65-hour power reserve inside a thin 7.13 mm case is no easy task. The watchmakers of Chopard achieved just that by means of a clever construction based on a micro-rotor. The in-house designers fashioned the large 39.50 mm-diameter case so as to feature a flat bezel and extremely slender caseband. This two-fold approach resulted in light, dynamic, timeless and supremely balanced lines for a model that won first prize in the ultra-thin watch category of the 2006 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.

To respond to the needs of men fascinated by fine mechanical horology, Chopard has equipped its L.U.C XPS with a sapphire crystal case-back making it possible to admire the L.U.C 96.12-L (L.U.C 12.96) movement and its superb hand-crafted finishes. Epicureans will note the allusion to the splendour of vintage wines in the satin-brushed champagne, cognac or burgundy coloured dials and matching straps of the new L.U.C XPS. This subtle tip of the hat is emphasised by the special presentation box showcasing the series and which is clearly reminiscent of those found in the best cellars. Combining aesthetic refinement and technical perfection, these three new L.U.C models are certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
