Chopard presents two new L.U.C Quattro models, beating to the rhythm of one of the greatest success stories of Chopard Manufacture, the four-barrel L.U.C 98.01-L movement launched in 2005. One of these two new elegant and refined interpretations comes with a rose gold case framing a brown dial, while the other is the first of its kind in platinum, with a blue-grey dial.
In 2010, for its 150th anniversary, Chopard had unveiled a new aesthetic for its L.U.C collection with four original timepieces: the L.U.C Louis-Ulysse – The Tribute, Engine One, All In One and 1937 models. Since then, the new creations in the collection have followed in the prestigious footsteps of these forerunners. This year’s crop includes two new variations of the L.U.C Quattro, which is protected by two patents for its four-barrel movement, a world first at the time of its launch in 2005.
