It may seem difficult to believe, given Chopard's vast experience in high horology, but the newest L.U.C Flying T Twin represents the brand's first-ever flying tourbillon (a tourbillon escapement without an upper bridge so it appears to be floating freely in space). It features a self-winding movement developed in-house specifically for this watch. Chronometer certified, Caliber 96.24-L is equipped with a stop-seconds device on the one-minute flying tourbillon for precise time setting. Impressively, the caliber measures just 3.30mm in thickness, enabling ultra an ultra-thin 7.2 mm case. The 190-part movement has two stacked barrels via Chopard's patented Twin Technology, which endow the watch with 65 hours of power reserve. The dial features a sophisticated motif, and a transparent sapphier caseback enables viewing of the finely finished movement, which carries the Hallmark of Geneva certification.

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.
