Alpine Eagle Flying Tourbillon




Another brand that is working with its own recycled steel (called Lucent Steel), Chopard is releasing several new models this year made of the hypo-allergenic alloy. In fact, Lucent Steel A223 is made with 70% recycled steel. This 41mm Alpine Eagle Flying Tourbillon watch is powered by the L.U.C. 96.24-L mechanical movement with tourbillon escapement that compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity on the watch when the wrist is in certain positions.

Complications prove no hindrance to Chopard, but rather characterize its craftsmanship as the brand has sought to perfect watchmaking since its establishment in 1996. Its flying tourbillon movement has been awarded a patent due to the meticulous precision that it possesses; the mechanism functioning to automatically bring the second hand to a halt when the crown is pulled out for time-setting.This improved accuracy achieved in the very smallest fragment of time is just one example of Chopard's fixation with precision. Evidenced by its array of exceptional watches, collections such as the Métiers d'art, epitomize the finest of horological craftsmanship and artistry. Personified by layered fragments, the plants, birds and polar bears found on these timepieces pay tribute to the beauty of nature.The Poinçon de Genève collection further infuses longstanding, independent standards of watchmaking into contemporary design to guarantee quality, and the limited-edition L.U.C Full Strike Sapphire watch unveiled by Chopard in 2022 equally flaunts excellence through modern design. Boasting a sapphire case and bridge to the minute repeater, this watch not only ticks with timely melody but is complexly composed of a 533-part movement.
