Chopard - L.U.C XP Skeletec

| 1 Comment
The latest addition from Chopard to the XP line is the L.U.C XP Skeletec, a watch where the Geneva-based manufacture applies the art of skeletonizing to an ultra thin movement.


The slate-grey sunburst satin-brushed dial forms a ring between the 39.50 mm x 7.13 mm rose gold case and the skeletonised mechanical self-winding movement L.U.C Calibre 96.17-S, introduced in 2012 as the first skeletonised calibre produced by the Chopard Manufacture.


This ultra-thin movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and offers a remarkable 65-hour power reserve thanks to the Twin technology, a Chopard-patented system which combines two coaxial barrels, a technical feat if you consider that the movement is just 3.3 mm thick.


Mainplate and bridges are adorned with Côtes de Genève on the dial side and openworked to reveal the details of the mechanism and its gear wheels.

The dial is completed by rose gold hour-markers and Dauphine hands.


The Chopard L.U.C XP Skeletec (ref. 161936-5003) is a limited edition of 288 numbered pieces and has a price of Euro 19,320. chopard.com
