Chopard - L.U.C Regulator

| No comment
Chopard reinterprets the regulator watch with a new model, part of the L.U.C Haute Horlogerie collections, that will be showcased at Baselworld 2015.

The new L.U.C Regulator combines Chopard's regulator movement with a carefully designed dial and a new L.U.C case in rose gold which is 43 mm wide and 9.78 mm thick.

Contrary to almost all available regulators, which usually place the hours at noon, those of the L.U.C Regulator appear at 3 o’clock which increases legibility, for example when the watch peeks out beyond a shirt cuff.

The sunburst satin-brushed dial is somehow symmetric with its four cardinal points each occupied by an indication. At noon, the power-reserve indication indicates the autonomy of L.U.C Calibre 98.02-L on a graduated scale while the small seconds beat at 6 o’clock. The fourth indication is a dual-time display appearing at 9 o’clock. This GMT function is controlled by a corrector-pusher recessed into the side of the L.U.C Regulator. The date, the only asymmetric element of the dial, is visible through a small aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock.

The meticulously finished L.U.C Calibre 98.02-L hand wound movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a remarkable 216-hour power reserve, equivalent to 9 days, thanks to the adoption of the exclusive Quattro technology which integrates four barrels despite of the limited thickness - just 4.90 mm - of the movement.

Each L.U.C 98.02-L movement of the L.U.C Regulator must undergo the tests conducted by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) to guarantee its chronometric precision. The watch is thus authorised to bear the inscription "Chronometer" on its dial.

The Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark testifies the fine technical and aesthetic craftsmanship of the watch case and movement, and in particular the high level of finishing on its mechanical parts.

The Chopard L.U.C Regulator has a retail price of Swiss Francs 29,800 / Euro 27,970.
