At the Basel exhibition in 2018, Chopard re-interpreted the iconic L.U.C series of L.U.C Quattro watches. Equipped with the L.U.C 98.01-L movement, the watch has a power reserve of up to 9 days and is certified by the Swiss Observatory’s Precision Timepiece, it is considered a model of contemporary elegance. Let’s have a look about this Chopard L.U.C Quattro 18 Carat Rose Gold Hand-wound Mechanical 43MM Men’s Limited Edition Wristwatch 161926-5004.
The diameter of this watch’s case is 43 mm and it is crafted in delicate 18K rose gold. The middle layer of the watch is decorated with a satin finish, the bezel is polished, and the bottom of the watch is hand-engraved. Its craftsmanship is rigorously certified by the Geneva Seal.
The watch introduces a new dial with a contemporary design and a minimalist style, its entire dial is finished with a vertical satin-brushed silver face, which is cleverly matched with a contrasting blue pointer. The 6 o’clock position has a sub-dial, following the logo of the L.U.C Quattro watch. This small dial is equipped with a small seconds hand and a date display function indicated by a pointer. Its scale design is more detailed and simplified. At 12 o’clock, the power reserve display is subdivided into nine scales that echo the top and bottom symmetry. With a 180 degree fan design, it is also a unique design of the L.U.C Quattro watch. The minute scales are paired with large Arabic numerals “3” and “9” at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, combining with the blue solid-set time scale very well. The shape of the time scale follows the design of the most distinctive rocket-style sharp-shaped pointer in the L.U.C series, and the pointer is covered with SuperLumiNova luminous coating.
The 18K rose gold crown is decorated with the L.U.C logo.
The watch is paired with a blue hand sewn alligator leather strap (brown alligator leather lining). Its design is unprecedented in the L.U.C series.
The watch is fitted with a pin buckle and the top is engraved with this series’ English letters.
The bottom of the watch is polished. This watch is equipped with a 98.01-L movement, and this mechanism is characterized by the patented Quattro four-barrel box technology. The two sets of double barrels stacked in series can drive the movement continuously for 216 hours, giving the certified chronometer a power reserve of up to 9 days, and the movement with a thickness of only 3.7 mm will not be occupied too much space, perfectly showing the slim features of the LUC Quattro series watches and making elegance.
In a simple and elegant style, this new watch contains subtle detail design with exquisite craftsmanship, creating advanced, sophisticated and unique timepiece masterpieces, it is limited to 51 pieces.
