Red Carpet Ready: Chopard’s L.U.C Timepiece Collection
Chopard is presenting a new interpretation of its exceptional L.U.C timepiece collection, especially designed to be worn on the red carpet: the L.U.C XPS Azur in 18-carat ethical white gold.
This intrinsically exclusive new L.U.C model is issued in a ten-piece limited edition and adorned with a dial whose azure hue is inspired by the intense blue of the Mediterranean sea. It is dotted with luxury wooden runabouts that are reminiscent yachts anchored in the bay of Cannes and moored to the pontoons of La Croisette ahead of the red carpet ceremony.
Coloured with elegant simplicity, the L.U.C XPS watch, famed within the L.U.C collection for its pared-down, modern design, now appears in azure blue. Its slim 40 mm-diameter 18-carat ethical white gold case frames an azure blue dial graced with a hand-guilloché radiating motif reflecting the exceptional expertise cultivated by Chopard. The sunburst rim is lit up by baguette-cut hour-markers, swept over by Dauphine-type hands.
Endowed with the aesthetic codes of the L.U.C collection, this timepiece also features perfectly proportioned lines and houses an in-house manufactured ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement. Equipped with a 22-carat micro-rotor and two barrels using Chopard Twin technology, it ensures approximately 65 hours of operating autonomy, the L.U.C 96.01-L movement measures 3.3 mm thick and displays remarkable precision, certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute.
Its artisanal finishing, visible through the exhibition case-back, testifies to the extreme degree of craftsmanship distinguishing Haute Horlogerie creations bearing the ‘Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark, which meticulously bridges that chamfered and adorned with Côtes de Genève, along with a chamfered and circular-grained mainplate. Admirably expressing style and fine craftsmanship, this unique model radiates a prestigious aura on the red carpet at the Cannes Festival. To learn more, visit www.chopard.com.
