Chopard Unveils Limited-Edition L.U.C GMT One Black

Moving On

While travel has been limited over the last year, you will want to start preparing for life to return to normal, and travel to return to your life.  What better way to prepare than to put a Chopard on your wrist to guide you.  The new Limited Edition L.U.C GMT One Black is a handsome luxury timepiece that can keep your timely schedule on time, as well as your look elegant. The brand has introduced this very contemporary looking timepiece providing a stealth appearance with a very user-friendly functionality.

Part of the 2021 gents’ collection the brand has truly captured the heart of the founder, and the timepiece is part of the epitome of exquisite watchmaking they are known for. These new travel models introduced previously in steel and precious-metal now are designed in cases made of ceramised grade 5 titanium, a material that is used in aerospace, automotive, and medical component manufacturing.  Like a futuristic metal, this is corrosion resistant, exceptionally hard, and is developed in that manner with electroplasma technology, a procedure that oxidizes surface layers of titanium at extreme temperatures.  The timepiece is paired with a gray-black toned dial, and matching strap, really giving it a avant-garde monochromatic look.  Elegant and sleek the timepiece is simply striking and modern with the clean lines, and crisp gray, black and white color scheme.

Gray Is Not Gloomy

All 42mm of this Limited-Edition L.U.C GMT One Black that Chopard has introduced screams exquisite design.  The galvanic gray dial has been rimmed by a clever railway-track minute scale and encircled with a satin-brushed 24 hour ring, and divided into two sectors, keeping with the color scheme, light-gray for daytime hours and black for nighttime hours.  The timepiece features two crowns, one sitting at 2 o’clock allowing adjustment for date and local time, the second at 4 o’clock controlling the second-time zone and indicated by a baton-style arrow tipped hand on the 24 hour scale.

The metallic black Dauphine hour and minute hands, a hallmark feature of the L.U.C watches, are of course coated with Super-LumiNova and showcases the date sitting in the window at 6 o’clock.  The heart of this magnificent timepiece is the in house Caliber L.U.C 01.10-L that sits behind the sapphire exhibition caseback, equipped with the integrated GMT function and features automatic winding, 31 jewels and 28,200 vph frequency, as well as a 60 hour power reserve.  The monochrome timepiece is not at all dull, it has shading and texture that defines it and vertical brushing in anthracite gray creating a finish that just compliments the look.

Performance, Perfection, Priceless

Chopard L.U.C GMT One Black features the typical decorative finishes you expect from the brand, chamferingon all components, cotes de Geneve on the bridges, a hand crafted black and gray strap made of rubber but processed like fabric making it durable, as well as water and sweat resistant.  This limited edition beauty only has 250 pieces produced and commemorates the 25th anniversary of the brand.  When looking for a timepiece that offers performance, perfection and a price that matches, then look no further than this beauty, signed, sealed and delivered.
