This year, Chopard presents a platinum version of the L.U.C Lunar One. Available in a 100-piece limited series, this new model boasts a deep blue sunray-patterned dial.
First presented in 2005, the L.U.C Lunar One is a perpetual calendar watch with large date and moon-phase display. This high end horology creation showcases the full range of watchmaking skills cultivated at Chopard and encompass the very heart of the L.U.C aesthetic. This classic masculine model, governed by elaborate rules of symmetry and optimal legibility that endow it with a perfectly balanced appearance, is introduced this year in platinum.
Entirely made of 950 platinum, the 43 mm-diameter case is adorned with vertical satin-brushed sides along with a polished bezel and lugs, thereby creating pleasing textured effects that further enhance its visual depth and interest.
