Chopard - L.U.C Time Traveler One

| 2 Comments
The first worldtime watch in the L.U.C collection from Chopard comes in three elegant versions offering a wide choice with regard to colour, appearance and preciousness.

The dial of the L.U.C Time Traveler One is an eye-catcher and operates in concentric layers. A central hand indicates the date, while a surrounding railway track circle serves to read off the hours and minutes of the local time zone – swept over by Dauphine-type hands typical of the watches in the L.U.C collection and adjusted via a crown positioned at 2 o’clock.

  
Moving outwards, a large 24-hour graduated ring operates in coordination with the disc bearing the reference cities symbolising the 24 main time zones. Once they are synchronised with the local time zone via the 4 o’clock crown, no other adjustment is required.

The most precious version appears in a platinum case which frames a subtle blue-tinged grey colour where the worldtime ring is half silver-toned to mark the daytime hours.


The 18-carat rose gold version features a silver-toned dial with the exception of the night-time hours that are shown in deep blue on its 24-hour disc.


Finally, the sportier L.U.C Time Traveler One comes in a stainless steel case matched to a sunburst black dial with contrasting orange accents. The worldtime ring stands out clearly, with a slate grey half indicating the night-time hours, and a silver-toned half showing daytime.


In each of these three versions, the satin-brushed and polished case of the L.U.C Time Traveler One measures 42 mm in diameter, an ideal size to ensure the legibility of the various indications.

The 4 o’clock crown bears a modern stylised globe motif, while its 2 o’clock counterpart is engraved with the L.U.C logo.

The L.U.C Time Traveler One is based on an all-new calibre entirely developed, produced and finished in the Chopard Manufacture workshops in Fleurier. Visible through a transparent case-back, the self-winding Calibre 01.05-L is distinguished by a 6.52 mm thickness and offers a 60-hour power reserve or two and a half days. Beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), the movement is chronometer-certified by the COSC.



Finishes are in line with the highest standards and include decorations such as chamfering and Côtes de Genève applied to the various components.
