Chopard L.U.C XP, New Model (Ref. 168592-3001- In Stainless Steel)

With its steel case, a silver-toned vertical satin-brushed Dacron-finish dial with large blued numerals and a blue cashmere strap, the new L.U.C XP model radiates casual elegance and a powerful personality. Equipped with an original ultra-thin self-winding movement – Calibre 96.53-L featuring a tungsten micro-rotor and dual-barrel Twin® technology – entirely developed and produced in the Chopard Manufacture workshops in Fleurier, this timepiece embodies a perfect blend of modernity and reliability.

The pure and contemporary ultra-thin model from Chopard displays a brand-new design. Cleverly combining a stylish vibe with the highest demands of watchmaking expertise, it plays with codes and styles, sending a fresh breeze blowing through Chopard Haute Horlogerie.
The finely vertical satin-brushed silver-toned dial houses slender applied hour-markers. Broad blued numerals swept over by equally blue Dauphine fusée-type hands. The new face of the L.U.C XP is the epitome of graphic restraint.
The 40mm case is made of stainless steel, a sturdy yet easy-wear material. It is fitted with a blue cashmere woven strap lined with brown alligator leather, a first for the L.U.C collection. To provide pleasurably varied options, the L.U.C XP may also be teamed with a blue alligator leather strap.
The L.U.C XP models house a movement comprising two stacked barrels (patented Twin® technology) guaranteeing a 58-hour power reserve. Accommodating such a self-winding movement within an ultra-thin 7.20 mm case is a technical feat made possible by in ingenious micro-rotor construction ensuring greater visibility of the movement. The latter is made of tungsten, a sturdy high-density material enabling enhanced movement winding. Finally, the choice of black engravings, visible through the exhibition case-back, sets the perfect finishing touch to a thoroughly modern and reliable watch.
