Chopard L.U.C. 2017
It’s consistently a treat to visit Chopard when we are visiting BaselWorld. Regardless of their prosperity and status in the business they figured out how to remain modest and cordial. This year Chopard showed us six new watches and every one of them were astonishing. Truly, I could envision myself wearing all of them for an alternate explanation. Thus I did if just a short time before the watches discovered their approaches to the following table to entrance different writers sitting there.
I think we went in reverse this year during the introductions. I saw the most costly and complicated watch first. The L.U.C. Unending Chrono for instance, a 45mm hand-wound platinum great complication made for the fans. The development ticking inside is the in-house created L.U.C. 03.10-L with COSC affirmation and 60 hours of force hold. It is a flyback chronograph with moon stage and unending schedule complications. The watch is supernatural, particularly the orbital moon stage show at 6 o’clock. The Chopard L.U.C. Never-ending Chrono watch is restricted to just 20 pieces with a sticker price of more than 100,000 CHF.
If one excessively decent platinum watch wasn’t sufficient for you, here is the second. The leader of the L.U.C. collection is the Lunar One, so they delivered a platinum adaptation of that, restricted to 100 pieces. The Lunar One is controlled by the in-house Chopard calibre L.U.C. 96.13-L development. It has a miniature rotor, a force hold of 65 hours and chronometer certification. Moreover, the watch likewise has the ‘Poinçon-de-Genève’ accreditation, for extraordinary craftsmanship. The Chopard L.U.C. Lunar One is a masterpiece surely. Côte-de-Genève enhanced scaffolds, galvanic blue sunburst glossy silk brushed dial with a showcase case back to see the miniature rotor. Price tag is roughly 66.000 CHF.
Stepping away from platinum super complications we saw a couple of time just watches. The one that stood apart for me the most was the Chopard L.U.C. XPS 1860 Officer (28.000 CHF). To give you the fundamental subtleties; white gold, 40mm, hand-made guilloché dial and a super meager development. The watch is magnificent, sits perfectly on the wrist. The bee colony guilloché theme from the dial is likewise enhancing the situation back. In any case, press the crown and the official sort back busts open uncovering the wizardry; the L.U.C. 86.01-L programmed development with 65 hours of force save. Much the same as the watches over, the Chopard L.U.C. XPS 1860 Officer likewise bears both chronometer and ‘Poinçon-de-Genève’ affirmations and it is restricted to 100 pieces.
Last yet not least, the L.U.C. XP. A 40mm watch in a treated steel case with a completely in-house programmed development, the L.U.C. 96.53-L. The watch is a particularly looking watch, with its blue Arabic numerals at 3-6-9 and 12 on a silver dial with Dacron wrapping up. The L.U.C. XP, similar to the next L.U.C. watches, comes with the chronometer certification and with a blue cashmere (indeed, you read it right) texture tie with crocodile lining. A watch that is an ideal fit for the youthful crowd or tenderfoot enthusiasts. Retail cost will be roughly 8000 CHF.
We saw the new Mille Miglia Classic XL 90th Anniversary Limited Edition, a delightful 18K gold watch with white dial. Chopard delivered the model to praise the commemoration of the incredible race with which they have been accomplices for quite a while now. They likewise came out with the most recent Mille Miglia 2017 Race Edition (6,700 CHF). The watch likewise commemorates the birthday of the Mille Miglia. To wrap things up, we got the opportunity to take a stab at the L.U.C. XPS Twist QF Fairmined (approx. 18,000 EUR). A refreshed fun loving adaptation of the exemplary XPS, here the crown is at 4 o’clock and the sub second dial is at 7 o’clock. The case is Fairmined gold and the watch additionally has QF (Qualité Fleurier) certificate. Dazzling piece and if the standard XPS is excessively straightforward for you the XPS Twist QF Fairmined is your watch.
