Equally renowned for their high-end jewellery and exclusive timepieces, Swiss manufacturer Chopard has unveiled a line of watches that brings out the best from both worlds.
While the new Haute Joaillerie collection named Precious Chopard consists of meticulously decorated watches as well as matching necklaces and jewellery for women, the line of luxurious and elegant wrist jewellery for men has three watches, named L.U.C GMT One, L.U.C Time Traveler One and L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru.
For gentleman adventurers and sharp dressers
The L.U.C Time Traveler One brings innovation to Chopard, as it is the first L.U.C watch to feature a dual-time complication built into the movement. The watch speaks to gentlemen globetrotters in particular, and its defining complication is as beautiful as it is functional. The watch comes in either steel, 18 carats rose gold or platinum. The steel version has a black dial. On the other hand, the rose gold version offers a contrasting white dial with an elegant deep blue nighttime scale. The most expensive platinum version offers a sublime dark turquoise look. One more reason to love this watch is the new COSC chronometer-certified 01.05-L calibre decorated in Côtes de Genève.
The next watch in the collection is the L.U.C GMT One, and it’s another pioneering timepiece for Chopard, as it’s their first watch with GMT function. The caliber that powers the watch is a self-winding L.U.C 01.10-L with a power reserve of 60 hours. As well as the Time Traveler One, the L.U.C. GMT One is also chronometer-certified by the COSC. The watch is also available in two cases, one being steel and other being 18 carats rose gold. The steel version has a black dial with contrasting grey and yellow detailing. However, the 18k rose gold comes in complementary shades of cream and brown.
L.U.C watches come in steel, rose gold and platinum
Finally, the L.U.C Heritage Gran Cru is the dressiest of the three. It features a tonneau shape sub-dial second-hand and a see-through caseback. Also, its classic look pays homage to Chopard’s pocket watches. This elegant dress watch is powered by a richly decorated 3.3mm calibre 97.01-L, and it is also COSC certified. This self-winding mechanism has a 22-carat gold micro-rotor, and the case comes in 18 carats rose gold only. This watch also bears the prestigious Poinçon de Genève seal reserved for watches that are entirely manufactured in the Genève canton.
