The new L.U.C XPS Fairmined watch combines watchmaking expertise with an ethical approach. The 250-piece limited edition crafted in Fairmined gold; illustrates the company’s continued commitment to The Journey to Sustainable Luxury and increasing the use of ethical gold in its creations.
The case-back, middle case and bezel of the new L.U.C XPS Fairmined are entirely made of Fairmined gold; a certification guaranteeing that the gold has been responsibly mined and the miners have received fair payment and an overall premium. The L.U.C XPS Fairmined is made in accordance with the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) ethical benchmarking.
The new L.U.C XPS Fairmined is a continuation of The Journey to Sustainable Luxury project that began in 2013 and follows the launch at Baselworld 2014, of the L.U.C Tourbillon QF Fairmined, the world’s first watch made from gold bearing the Fairmined certification.
The L.U.C XPS Fairmined with its pure, restrained design is distinguished by its inherent elegance. Presented in a Fairmined 18-carat rose gold case, its sleek modern lines feature a 39.5 mm diameter and a thickness of just 7.13 mm. The hours and minutes are marked off on a subtle sunburst satin-brushed slate-grey galvanic dial enhanced with gilt Dauphine hands sweeping over slender gilt hour-markers matching the polished rose gold of the case. The L.U.C XPS Fairmined model is worn on a hand-sewn black alligator vegetable tanned leather strap.
To ensure the traceability of the Fairmined gold now used by Chopard, the company has created a segregation process in its workshops in Geneva, ensuring that Fairmined gold is not mixed at any stage with other types of gold. Gold waste is also dealt with separately.
