Chopard L.U.C Louis-Ulysse

       Maybe one of the most iconic luxury goods manufacturers in the world, Chopard was created in 1860s by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, a visionary spirit of his time, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, in Sonvilier, and, through the years, the brand started to be associated with sophisticated accessories, jewelry, and superb wristwatches, which combine aesthetical perfection and immaculate precision.

       Recently, in order to celebrate its 150th anniversary, Chopard presented another superb horological creation, the outstanding new Chopard L.U.C Louis-Ulysse – The Tribute watch, which merges supreme elegance and mechanical sophistication. Dedicated to the brand’s founder, the superb timepiece belongs to a limited edition of just 150 pieces, and retains the classic elegance of past century gent’s watch, being a modern interpretation of a revolutionary pocket watch created by Karl Scheufele I, the first one that could be attached to the wrist. First presented at Baselworld 2010, the remarkable Chopard L.U.C Louis-Ulysse – The Tribute watch features the innovative system that helps its owner to transform easily the pocket watch in to a wristwatch, and vice versa.

       The stylish timepiece features a slightly oversized case measuring 49.6 mm in diameter, nicely sculpted in precious 18-karat white gold, and which demonstrates a beautiful combination of brushed and polished surfaces. The watch’s case impresses through its bow and winding crown, located at 12 o’clock position.

       The watch features a stylish white “lacquered ceramic” dial fitted with the brand’s L.U.C Chopard 1860 signature, beneath the 12 o’clock position, and the iconic black Dauphine fusee-like hour and minute hands nicely matched with vivid red accents and black Roman numerals hour markers. Moreover, the dial of the timepiece is shielded by a chambered sapphire crystal.

       At the heart of this sophisticated timepiece beats the COSC-certified L.U.C EHG Pocket Watch movement, a high-precision hand-wound mechanical movement, which oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 beats per hour, conferring the advantage of an 80-hour power reserve. The timepiece confers, asides from central hours and minutes functions, a small second’s display, located at 6 o’clock position.

       Especially created for a true watch enthusiast, the Chopard L.U.C Louis-Ulysse – The Tribute watch reveals astounding attention to the purity of the finest detail; it will be secured to the wrist with a black alligator leather strap and a chain, and it will surely be the thrill of any watch enthusiast. As for the price tag, it has not been announced yet, but we expect it to be exclusive.
