Watch connoisseurs the world over know that Chopard timepieces set the standard for luxury and refined elegance. Although Chopard luxury watches are available in a vast array of styles that include a wide range of the industry's finest complications, the L.U.C. Classic is most notable for its beautiful aesthetic simplicity.
Available in rose, yellow and white gold, the L.U.C. Classic's case houses an incredibly precise calibre certified by the COSC. The dial, protected by a strong and ultra-clear sapphire crystal, in unencumbered by markings or complications. Solid gold tick marks matching the type of gold of which the case is composed are used to mark the time, rather than numbers.
The only noticeable embellishment is a stately "double tick" sitting at 12 o'clock. In a brilliant display of Chopard's tremendous restraint in designing the L.U.C. Classic, a two-tone face plays light like an instrument, creating just the right amount of eye-catching glimmer. The only dial feature other than the exquisitely tapered gold hour, minute and second hands is the small date window just north of the six o'clock tick mark.
The automatic "L.U.C. Twin" double-barrel 22-karat gold micro-rotor-driven motion provides a nearly three-day power reserve for times when the watch is being admired on the armoire rather than on the wrist. During those times when the watch is on the wrist, it is secured by a hand-stitched black or brown alligator strap with a tastefully-sized gold buckle that matches the gold case. Even the movement of the gold crown is impressive; the timepiece aficionado will no doubt admire its ultra-smooth motion when setting the time. Indeed, Chopard's L.U.C. Classic is a masterpiece of elegance, sophistication and engineering crafted for the discerning watch seeker.
