Exquisite L.U.C Tourbillon Esprit de Fleurier Limited Edition Watch by Chopard

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Chopard presents the world the L.U.C Tourbillon Esprit de Fleurier watch limited to only 15 pieces. The new sophisticated timepiece will surely fit perfectly in any passionate watch-lover`s collection.

The watch is a tribute to Louis-Ulysse Chopard, the founder of the famous France watch manufacturer. Honoring the beauty and art, the wonderful Fleurier engraving can be admired through the open dial and sapphire crystal case-back.

Crafted in 18K white gold, the round case of this sophisticated timepiece measures 40.5 mm in diameter and 10.90 in height. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal which is scratch-proofed, cambered and glare-proofed.

The gorgeous dial made of satin-brushed 18K white gold reveals an exquisite combination of finishes and precious materials. In the upper side of the dial there is a dazzling tapestry of fine hand-engraving, while in the lower part of the dial there is one-minute tourbillion at 6 o`clock, plus the seconds counter. The dial comprises gold Roman numerals, hour markers and blued steel hands.

The L.U.C Tourbillon Esprit de Fleurier is powered by the in-house L.U.C. 4TT3NGM Calibre, a hand-wound movement with C.O.S.C chronometer certification. Featuring four-barrel design, this movement includes two sets of two coaxially stacked barrels that function in series providing the right amount of energy and ensuring ideal isochronisms. The mechanism makes possible 216 hours (9days) of continuous operation. The power reserve indicator is placed at 2 o`clock.

Another highlight of this amazing watch is the Variner (Variable Inertia) free-sprung balance with variable inertia weights that is generally featured in high sophisticated timepieces and used only by veritable manufactures, such as Patek Philippe and Rolex.

There are 18K gold bridges and mainplate, also engraved in the Fleurier style, which can be admired either via the sapphire glass case-back or via the skeletonized dial. The watch has 30-meter water-resistance.

The hand-stitched black alligator leather strap with platinum buckle finishes the look of the L.U.C Tourbillon Esprit de Fleurier, a magnificent piece of jewelry that can be admired for hours.
