Chopard - L.U.C Engine One H

| No comment
The design of the new Chopard L.U.C Engine One H is inspired to racing cars.
The 44.5 mm titanium case is characterised by the combination of polished and satin-brushed surfaces, convex and concave curves. The over sized crown is at 12 o'clock. 

Engine-block cylinder heads inspired the grooves engraved on the dial-side bridges. While the hours and minutes are shown by central hands, the power reserve is read off on the left, much like a fuel gauge. The small seconds are fitted on the tourbillon and appear on the right, like a speedometer. 
The in-house movement, or we could say the engine, is the L.U.C 04.02-L hand-wound calibre with a tourbillon regulator. It is positioned Horizontally instead of Vertically and this is what the H of the watch name stands for. It runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a 60-hour power reserve. The finishes of the movement - visible through the sapphire crystal caseback - evoke those typically appearing on engines, while its horizontal layout reflects the design of racing-car cockpits. 
Both the inner and outer sides of the alligator strap with its five rows of over stitching echo the aesthetic of automobile upholstery from the 1960s and 1970s, demonstrating the care that Chopard devotes to each and every finishing detail.

Through aesthetics, functionality and performance, Chopard once affirms its long-established relationship with the field of competitive motor sports.

The Chopard - L.U.C Engine One H (ref. 168560-3001) is a 100-piece limited edition.
