Chopard debuted the Fleurier Manufacture and micro-rotor movement, the Calibre 1.96 in 1996 guided by Karl-Friedrich Schefeule. That milestone launched the beginning to the collection of high-end elegant watches named L.U.C and embraced the expert horological skills of the brand. That introduction laid the foundation for developments that included the Perpetual Twin, the most exquisite perpetual calendar in 2016 on the 20th anniversary of that collection. Now the brand once again provides affordable high quality versions that capture every essence of the original, with added beauty and design. These two new releases the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Twin Watch Updated for 2020 with new steel and gold models offers first, the stainless steel case with a new subtle blue dial, and the second for the first time a pink gold that is presented with a ruthenium grey dial. Spectacular timepieces that are offered at such an amazing price.
Both of the new dials are classic style, but modern touches that the brand has designed. The faceted hour markers replace the Roman numerals seen on the previous models, and the dials are detailed with a sunray satin-brush finish that emphasizes the true beauty. The 43mm case really showcases the clean dial layout, and provides a legible and practical display for the person wearing the watch. The dial layout on the Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Twin Watch Updated For 2020 With New Steel & Gold Models enhances the large date indication and made the three sub-dials highlight the day of the week, the month, and the leap year indication, and finished with the small seconds at 6 o’clock. The entire inner beauty is made visible under the sapphire crystal caseback allowing the in-house automatic calibre L.U.C 96-22-L movement to shine. Designed at 6.00mm thick the movement is complex and provides a 65 hour power reserve.
The Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Twin Watch Updated For 2020 With New Steel & Gold models deliver a subtle elegance at an affordable price and never sacrifice on precision and certified by the COSC, Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres. Finished with impeccable detail and a gorgeous alligator leather strap, both of these watches are excellent for business to casual or formal to fun. Water resistant rating at 30m and truly just wonderful timepieces that fit any lifestyle.
