Chopard asked us to explain the fine details of their L.U.C watch collections featuring manufacture movements made in-house; and we begin by taking a hands-on look at the Chopard L.U.C Quattro.
Content from Chopard:
“The L.U.C Quattro of Chopard is powered by one of the biggest successes of Chopard Manufacture – the famous four-barrel L.U.C 98.01-L movement. This elegant and sophisticated reinterpretation adopts the new aesthetic codes of the L.U.C collection and will delight devotees of Haute Horlogerie as well as all those with a taste for distinguished lines.
The hand-wound L.U.C 98.01-L movement is indeed the world’s only movement to have been fitted with four stacked and series-coupled barrels. This patented technology ensures a full nine days of operating autonomy to the L.U.C Quattro and a constant rating regularity that enables it to meet all the requirements of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The L.U.C 98.01-L movement also bears the prestigious Poinçon de Genève hallmark, a guarantee of perfect quality and finishing, and its bridges are adorned with a straight-line Côtes de Genève motif.
The dial of the L.U.C Quattro features new hands inspired by the “dauphine” style already used in the collection, but redesigned to provide a hint of technical refinement and precision reflecting the quality of the L.U.C. movements.
The details of the rose gold and white case have been fine-tuned to create a refined and timeless appearance. Its curves lend a masculine and contemporary touch to the redesigned lugs. Its diameter has been broadened to a generous 43 mm and its finishes are satin-brushed on the case middle and polished on the bezel and the exhibition back. A brown or black hand-sewn alligator strap completes the elegant look of the Chopard L.U.C Quattro.”
