Replica Buyers Guide Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed Black Watch for Valentine’s Day


By Harlan Chapman-Green

For those of you romantics who are wondering what to get your other half, maybe this time you should consider a cool new timepiece from what is perhaps the most romantic of all the jewellery companies: Chopard. Since 1988 Chopard has been responsible for timing one of the most prestigious motor racing events known a the Mille Miglia. The cars are sophisticated, and so the watches should be as well, luckily, the new watch does not disappoint.

Back in 2015 Chopard brought us the ultra sporty Mille Miglia GTS collection of watches, which came along with huge 12 and 6 O’clock markers (coated with Superluminova), deep black dials and a thin bezel. Now Chopard has come back with the all black version, stealthy, sleek and sexy in a way, the new GTS Automatic Speed Black watch. The Mille Miglia is a legendary racing event from the past, on par with the Indy 500 in the USA and the events held at Brooklands Motor Circuit during the first half of the 20th century. Although the last official Mille Miglia endurance race was held in 1957 those who heard about it revived it in a way in the late seventies as the Mille Miglia Storica for cars made before 1957. The historic races still follow the same route from Brescia to Rome and then back to Brescia to finish.

Chopard has equipped these watches with manufacture movements since 2015, beautifully decorated movements to go with Chopard’s sponsorship of what has been described as the “world’s most beautiful race” by Enzo Ferrari. The new GTS Automatic Speed Black combines the pizazz and glamour of the Mille Miglia races with the stealth looks and hardcore design of the black DLC coated stainless steel case. Like the other Mille Miglia GTS watches this one features the same narrow aluminium graduated bezel insert.

Perhaps my favourite detail is the Mille Miglia logo which surrounds the date window like a picture frame. Dotted around the watch are accents in the colour ‘Rosso Corsa’, that colour of red that Italian sports cars are known for, these are particularly prevalent on the dagger shaped hands which have also been given the Superluminova treatment. Even the sapphire on the back of the case has been given a dark tint to go with the black treatment of the case. Inside this watch is the automatic calibre Chopard 01.01-M which has been fully designed and produced in-house by Chopard themselves. It has been endowed with a strong 60 hours of power reserve and has been  certified to chronometer standards by COSC. The movement beats at 4Hz and also carries 31 jewels and is a slim 4.95mm overall, just under half the watch’s total 11.43mm total thickness.

The Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Automatic Speed Black is perhaps best examined when you take the strap into consideration as well. Offered for this watch is a black rubber strap with grooves cut into it which evoke the tread patterns on Dunlop tyres used by the cars in the Mille Miglia. There’s also a black bead blasted and DLC coated clasp to the watch with the Chopard logo etched into a crescent shape. This makes it also more faithful to old motoring related signs of the past which would curve their writing rather than have it on a flat plane, it shows that for Chopard the clasp is clearly not an afterthought.

The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac was probably designed with a Chinese client in mind. But even as a Chinese myself, I can’t help but think they likely took the Chinese styling cues too far. As for me, I think Chopard should have stopped at the engravings about the situation and abandon the dial simple. But hey, what do I know? I am convinced there is a market for marginally over-the-top unique pieces in this way. A staple of this Chopard L.U.C collection, the Chopard L.U.C Lunar One perpetual calendar, has become an underdog hero for luxury watch collectors since the model’s introduction over a decade ago. Today, I review a newer limited edition version of the L.U.C Lunar One (reference 161927-9001) in a 950 platinum case using a trendy blue dial. It’s a very Chopard solution, showcasing a lot of what the manufacturer works best, and in a cost that, comparatively speaking, is very decent.A couple of decades back, I seen Chopard’s manufacture center in Fleurier where they create L.U.C set watches. While all Chopard watches are technically speaking luxury products, the L.U.C set is where collectors actually put their focus given the moves. Many L.U.C watches are more conventional in their style, but with a healthy dose of (tasteful) masculinity depending on the proportions, sizes, and robust presence of the watches overall.Each L.U.C motion is produced in-house by Chopard, also contains finishing (decoration into the metallic components) which in my view rivals those which are regarded as the very best in the business. A good look at the in-house made quality L.U.C 96.13-L automated movement through the back of the case reveals careful focus, beautiful classic lines, superb surface treatments, and also a focus on practical usefulness that we watch lovers find in timepieces we actually wear.

These are limited to 1000 pieces only at the current time, so if you like it you can head straight over to Chopard’s website and buy direct today! The price is 6800 €. For more info, please visit chopard.com

Low Price Replica Chopard L.U.C Time Traveler One World Time Watch Hands-On


By Harlan Chapman-Green

You may remember some time ago we presented you with a hands-on of the brand new L.U.C Chopard GMT One watch, perhaps my favourite release of this year alongside the new Type XXI from Breguet (that’s big praise in my head at least). If you paid attention to some of the photos you may have noticed that the GMT One wasn’t actually the only watch there. The group shots allowed us to give a sneak peek of the watch we present to you today, the Time Traveller One. It is perhaps a little embarrassing that I swooned over the GMT quite a bit, but don’t panic because there is an upside to this new collection L.U.C Chopard which will be revealed in time.

20161013_155856

I couldn’t wait. Perhaps the best part of the collection is that the case on the Time Traveller One watch has the same footprint as the GMT watch and the mass on the wrist is pretty similar too for the gold versions. Even the crowns are in the same places as well, where one controls the movement and the hands of the watch while the other moves the city ring around one step. This is a good method of ensuring control of expenditures and more importantly keeping a design unity of the watches within the range and any future models. The twin crown design would allow them to make a twin timezone watch that differs from the GMT, or they could put their knowledge to the test and design an alarm watch that still uses the two crowns made of 18K white gold.

In terms of the actual world time complication itself, it does pretty much what you’d ask of it. The hands advance smoothly and the cities are nice and legible around the outside of the dial. When you actually advance the ring itself you’ll notice there’s a little bit of give in the mechanism and the click from the ring when it slots into the next position isn’t as precise as some other watches I’ve experienced in the past. Nevertheless, it was definitely a good idea to keep the uniformity and simplicity with a crown operated system rather than opting for a pusher mechanism which would make the watch appear asymmetrical, overcomplicated to work on and frankly too fiddly for something that’s supposed to be used on the fly. Isn’t it just nice to have something there to play with that doesn’t interrupt the movement? Even if you never explicitly use the time zone feature, you can always have a bit of fun moving it around whenever you find yourself a little lost on how to stay entertained, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

luc-1-5

The movement inside the watch doesn’t disappoint, either, the L.U.C 01.05L calibre features the same basic construction as the L.U.C 01.10L movement found in the GMT One watch, with the added complication of the world timer function. That means you’ll still get 60 hours from the barrels at 4Hz and, more importantly, the COSC chronometer rating. The decoration on the watch will definitely inspire those who are fans of minimalism, if you’re expecting ivy motifs or some such you’ll be mistaken. The rotor swings freely but doesn’t appear to have a wobble to it, showing the care and attention that has gone into it. Perhaps it would be nice to see a gold rotor on the gold watches and a platinum one on the white metal watches, but in the end, it’s not that big of a deal and the movement does look charming anyway.

luc-1-6

At this point, I would like to step back from the watch for a minute and talk a bit about the Chopard website. It’s from there you can do more than just flick through all of the pretty pictures in the catalogue (there are a lot, believe me, I checked). You can also buy from them, but not just any watch that anyone else can get. If you know your wrist size then Chopard will happily change the strap dimensions for you too, if you’re unsure there’s also a size guide to help you out. I did notice if you change the E-Shop from UK settings to USA you have to request to purchase the Time Traveller One, not something the UK website has.
luc-1-8

Allow me to highlight Chopard on still another element of the watch, which is the ring. L.U.C watches typically use one of the highest quality straps I know of, and in addition to being attractive, they are very sensible. For instance, a number of leather straps (calf, alligator, or otherwise) tend to be inflexible and uncomfortable to wear. Bending readily over your wrist, so you can find a comfortable fit straight away, which isn’t something I will say for so many high-end watches on the market. Attached to the alligator strap is a matching platinum folding deployant buckle. “Platinum perpetual calendar view” is about all you have to state in front of most watch fans in order to get them excited. Budget prepared, I would say most folks would be interested in having a product like this, which is both practical to wear and full of esteemed bragging rights. For me personally, complicated dress watches evoke the image of someone who is at precisely the exact same time classic and intellectual. This is the thinking man’s formal view (or the guy who regularly forgets what month and day it’s — and who also does not have an electronic calendar apparatus).So long as you’re open to the simple fact that a perpetual calendar’s usefulness and value are largely psychological, then you are in the right mental state to start enjoying a perpetual calendar view. I say all this given that most individuals are going to utilize their wristwatch as a quick reference to this date, rather than as their only, reliable calendar apparatus. So with this said, when interested in a perpetual calendar, I suggest seeking one that is otherwise comfortable, a fantastic monetary value, and comfy to wear. In a sense, the endless calendar complication needs to be a welcome addition (as opposed to some detractor) in an otherwise suitable daily wristwatch. Is the Chopard L.U.C Lunar One just this type of watch? I’d argue, most surely.

20161013_155910-1

The sad thing is that there will always be a downside, luckily it’s not the actual watch itself that has any kind of mechanical faults or anything like that, they were perfect when we tested them out. It’s more to do with the fact there is no steel version so it’s going to get a little pricy here. The platinum watch is $35,200, if you’re a fan of warmer metals and wanted 18K rose gold instead you’ll find it’s only (he says only) $22,500. You do get the same flawless strap as well with alligator leather on both sides for comfort and durability. I wish there was a little bit of decoration on the movement, if I had to ask for something. Particularly on the platinum time traveller, while continuity in a collection is key it’s nice to know that someone has spent some extra time pouring over each bit in the watch to make it super special, just for you. For more info, please visit chopard.com

Low Price Replica WristReview’s Top 5 Watches from Chopard


By Harlan Chapman-Green

One of the best things about being a watch blog editor is that we get to see so many different creations coming from companies all around the globe. From America to Japan and everywhere in between, watchmaking is experiencing a renaissance of sorts where people from all walks of life are making their dreams a reality. However, it’s fair to say the most inventive and exciting still come from Europe with Switzerland at the heart of the industry. At the centre of that is Geneva which is turf for some of the biggest groups in the industry, but one independent that’s always garnered our interest is Chopard, which is known for presenting slightly quirky and definitely left-field alternatives to some of the more ‘mundane’ timepieces. So, to show our recognition for them we’ve decided to choose our Top 5 watches and display them in our specialised order.

5. L.U.Chopard GMT One

Late last year (October 2016, to be precise) I embarked on a trip from university in Bristol all the way to big shiny London where a Jaguar XJ LWB awaited to whisk me away to Phillips to meet with Chopard. This was one of the two collections we came to see in the metal, the other being the GMT Time Traveller. Out of the two, the GMT One was my favourite, it’s a sleek dressy watch with a wonderful balance of sportiness thrown in there too. The twin crowns make for a more unusual appearance and the strap and buckle match the robustness you’d expect from this watch. The black dial version in steel works beautifully as a fine line between casual, dress and sports watches. Oh, we also like automatic movement visible through the back.

Chopard gets high marks for an attractive moon phase signal display, which eschews the normal style of this “M-shaped” window for a single that appears a bit more natural using a round window. A disk underneath moves in order to replicate the appearance of the present moon in the sky, which is surrounded by the theme of small stars (that Chopard asserts are visually representative of actual starts in the Northern Hemisphere). More so, the moon phase indicator window itself revolves round its own axis at the sub-dial. It is not a functional element in my understanding but does really assist the dial stay fresh and interesting. The moon phase layout component is intentionally noticeable and highlighted on these timepieces, whose name once more is “Lunar One. “Even though some of the dial complications can be adjusted via the crown, the L.U.C Lunar One instance includes four inset pushers onto it which can help to rapidly correct the calendar and moon phase advice if you leave the watch unworn for a while. I do also realize that the watch is an automatic, but given the quantity of complications here which may be a pain to adjust, it might have been nice to either have a power reserve indicator on the dial, or a pusher (like A. Lange & Söhne has on some versions) that allows you to progress all of the date information by one day at a time.I’m traditionally not a really major fan of platinum for a watch case material, however also the precious metal has been growing on me. Seeing this watch from afar, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was 18k white silver or gold rather than platinum. Although it’s true that the colour and finishing of platinum, steel, and 18k white gold are somewhat different, most individuals don’t really know the difference. More so, platinum is a heavy metal in weight, and also susceptible to scratching easily. So why then is this valuable metal much more precious than gold? My understanding is that it comes down to rarity given that platinum (when compared with gold) is much harder to find.

4. Chopard Superfast Split Seconds

One of the best things about this company in particular is that their demand isn’t massively high. that’s not to say they don’t have customers and aren’t liked by the community, but demand for Chopard’s watches isn’t as great as other companies in this price sector, but for those who are into their watches that presents benefits, enter the Superfast Split Seconds. A relatively inexpensive split seconds (rattrapante) chronograph in a sporty steel case. The automatic winding chronograph watch makes use of red for the components related to the chronograph such as sub-dials for the chronograph and the pusher unusually located at 8 O’clock. We like how the watch is understated about the complications it makes use of, it’s one you’d have to ask about to find out in full.

3. L.U.Chopard Perpetual Chronograph

Of course, one shouldn’t mistake the fact that a company makes affordable watches as being a company that cannot produce expensive and complicated ones too. Entire the Perpetual Chronograph, unveiled at Baselworld in 2016 this stunner packs in some of the most complicated and exquisite complications there are, specifically the chronograph and the perpetual calendar. Making use of five subdials and two date windows overall, the Perpetual Chronograph is a model which shows exemplary skill in watchmaking. Couple this with the fully visible moonphase at 6 O’clock and the twin date windows just under the logo and it’s easy to see why this one claims spot number three. Also, we really really love the sunburst guilloché on the dial, like, really really love it.

2. L.U.Chopard XPS Fairmined

It’s all well and good with all these different companies claiming to offer a different product for a lower price. We see them all the time, watches made out of wood for example, or independent watchmakers who fuss over every little detail but perhaps miss the big picture. The big picture is how we practically source materials we use all the time which is where, once again, Chopard steps in. The gold used in this watch is accredited to be Fairmined, this means that everyone involved in the production process from the choosing of the dig site to find the gold ore to the gold arriving at Chopard ready to be used. This could be big for us in ten years time if the whole industry gets on board with it. About this watch, we love the circular engraving of the dial, the sleek case and the decoration of the automatic winding chronometer grade movement. I take it back, this and the GMT One are my favourite watches from Chopard.

1. L.U.Chopard Triple Certification Tourbillon

Talking about revolutions in the watch industry, in at number 1 spot on our list is probably the most exemplary of them all. Don’t for a minute think that we don’t love the Full Strike watch as well, but a watch which can claim to be the only one with three separate hallmarks for quality? This tourbillon watch bears certification from COSC for its accuracy, like a Rolex has. It also bears the Seal of Geneva for its construction and finishing techniques like a Vacheron Constantin. Then it adds in a certificate from the Foundation Qualité Fleurier in as well, this is an extremely hard certificate to achieve as is demonstrate by the fact that only Chopard, Bovet, Parmigiani and Manufacture Vaucher have attained it. Having this watch shows that Chopard really means business when it comes to complications and high standards, all 224 components are squeezed into the 43mm case with spectacular fashion.

Maybe the market shouldn’t overlook Chopard? Maybe they should? After all, those ‘in the know’ about the company can enjoy the products without all the flimflam associated with other companies, either way, keep an eye on Chopard at this year’s Baselworld. For more info, please visit chopard.com

Replica At Best Price Pre-Baselworld 2017: Chopard L.U.C Lunar One Watch (Live Pics)


By Jovan Krstevski

The 12 animals of the Zodiac are engraved chronologically on the situation middle with all the rat positioned on the upper right corner of this watch. Some highlights worth mentioning include the tiger, which is positioned on the crown; and the dragon and snake, which are intertwined between the base lugs of this case. The bezel is hand-engraved with the champlevé technique also and includes a pattern which calls to mind that the grids found on ancient Chinese doorways. Like the case, it’s hand-engraved using a lattice pattern that’s like that of the bezel. The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac is water-resistant to 30m and comes with a black tee alligator strap plus a fitting 18k rose gold pin buckle.The L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac features a number of complications. On the dial at 12 o’clock is a major date display. Below are the perpetual calendar indications. At 3 o’clock, we’ve got the month and leap year signs, and at 9 o’clock we’ve got the afternoon and 24-hour indicators. In the end, at 6 o’clock there is the tourbillon which makes a rotation every minute. This doubles up as the running moments sub-dial. Powering the opinion is the caliber 02.15-L that contains 353 components and Chopard’s Quattro system, so it’s four mainspring barrels along with a power reserve of 216 hours or 9 days. As stated earlier, it includes the ceaseless calendar complication along with a tourbillon mechanism, and it beats at 4Hz. The motion comprises extensive hand-finishing for example beveled bridges, gleaming screws and jewel countersinks, and continues to be given the Geneva Seal. The owner can also rest sure of exceptional timekeeping performance since it’s additionally chronometer-certified by COSC. The motion could be admired through the view’s sapphire display caseback.
The Chopard L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch is a successor to the brand’s first L.U.C XP Tonneau watch that was released in 2001. This latest at Chopard’s deservedly vaunted L.U.C division is called after the distinction offered to the most superior levels of wine produced… Though, how these two distinct fields of fine living resonate we will attempt not only to clarify, but also detect ourselves.Reminiscent and similar to this Chopard L.U.C XP Tonneau watch, the Heritage Grand Cru is an odd piece from Chopard based on case shape alone — more on that in a bit. A glance in its spec sheet gives away an automatic, tonneau-shaped, 3.3mm thick motion wrapped within an 18kt rose gold, tonneau-shaped case that steps just 38.5mm by 38.8mm, coming in at a slender 7.7millimeter thick.The curved middle section of this case is vertical lace brushed while the bezel and area surrounding the display case-back is polished. Beyond the domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal is a white porcelain-type dial with black Roman numerals, with a second track surrounding the center of the dial. At 6 o’clock is the small seconds sub-dial, which can be snailed and contains a gilded seconds hand. The hour and minute hands are dauphine style and are also gilded.It isn’t unusual for gold hands on watches to be polished into a point where it is not even worth inquiring about legibility in higher-light ailments. The gilded, i.e. plated gold palms here are brilliant but are quite legible in the sunlight and at various angles. Set against the glossy, trendy porcelain dial, the dauphine-fusée hour and second hands are properly angular and thoughtfully proportioned to get a tonneau-shaped case. Fusée means rocket in French and also this specific sort of dauphine hands is Chopard’s own — something that I keep to very much enjoy regardless of the case shape and dial design they install it on. Their faceted sides and ideal length give them plenty of quantity — and no opinion could be taken seriously without appropriate palms.
The 12 animals of the Zodiac are engraved chronologically on the situation middle with all the rat positioned at the top right corner of this watch. Some highlights worth mentioning include the tiger, which can be positioned on the crown; and the snake and dragon, which are intertwined between the bottom lugs of this circumstance. The bezel is hand-engraved using the champlevé technique also and includes a pattern that calls to mind the grids found on historical Chinese doorways. Such as the case, it’s hand-engraved using a lattice pattern that is like that of the bezel. The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac is water-resistant to 30m and comes with a black tee alligator strap and a matching 18k rose gold pin buckle.The L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac includes lots of complications. Below are the perpetual calendar signs. At 3 o’clock, we’ve got the month and leap year signs, and at 9 o’clock we’ve got the afternoon and 24-hour indicators. Finally, at 6 o’clock there is the tourbillon that makes a rotation every minute. This doubles up as the running seconds sub-dial. Powering the opinion is your caliber 02.15-L that contains 353 components and Chopard’s Quattro system, which means it has four mainspring barrels along with a power reserve of 216 hours or 9 days. As mentioned before, it features the perpetual calendar complication along with a tourbillon mechanism, and it defeats at 4Hz. The movement comprises extensive hand-finishing such as beveled bridges, polished screws and stone countersinks, and continues to be given the Geneva Seal. The owner may also rest assured of exceptional timekeeping performance since it is also chronometer-certified by COSC. The motion could be admired through the watch’s sapphire display caseback.

If you remember back in 2005, we were all salivating for the much-awaited release of the gorgeous Lunar One by Chopard. So without further ado, this year we will be once again experiencing another refreshed version of the Lunar One. What makes this really special is that its source of inspiration is no other than its founding father Louis-Ulysse Chopard. This is also the reason why it is the flagship of the collection bearing the L.U.C initials, in short, it is arguably one of Chopard’s finest contemporary timepieces. The Geneva Seal-certified L.U.C Lunar One is certainly a sporty perpetual calendar watch with a moon phase indicator in a platinum case. What is more is that there will only be 100 pieces of the Lunar One… that is one heck of a restriction for a truly incredible watch.

Platinum has grown on me due to its psychological value. To begin with, you never truly forget you’re wearing a platinum opinion. Its weight makes it considerably more “old school” as a luxury product when weight helped one measure the worth of something. Thus, compared to a steel watch, you really realize that something different is on your wrist when sporting platinum (and there’s value in being reminded of that). Ironically, these days watchmakers are just as interested in making watches lighter in weight (maybe more curious) than making heavy gold or platinum watches.Platinum is also more discreet than yellow gold, or most other metals of gold. The same argument can be made for white gold. This means that while you as the wearer know you’ve got something precious, that fact is much less obvious for the people viewing the watch for you personally. Wearing it means that you need to have the ability to afford it, but in addition, it means you aren’t yelling that fact to the world. Be aware that while the case is gold, the crown is generated out of 18k white gold. That is likely because platinum is a harder-to-machine material, and also the particulars in the crown likely make it easier to create in gold.

At 43mm the polished platinum case with alternating brushed features seems a bit small for a chronometer particularly its 11.47mm thickness but don’t we all want a smaller complicated watch? Maybe Chopard just wants every space tightened up for a smaller watch but we can all surmise as we like but the designers and engineers sure know their thing and I’m just very glad how this turned out, a work of art timepiece worthy of a royalty. I love the platinum case, its lovely bezel and the subtle lugs and bezel.

The new Lunar One also has new dial design which is now featuring applied Roman numerals. The sub-dials seem a bit squeezed but this is so that readability is enhanced. The moon phase and calendar complications, along with the big date aperture at 12 are nicely designed against a deep blue sunray dial. The polished metals are a fascinating combo of delicious watchmaker’s marvels, I like it. A thing to note here is that the sunray dial radiates from the Chopard logo which is located halfway at the 12 o’clock point, quite a unique approach.

The new dial presents applied Roman numerals, a trio of subdials at 3, 6, and 9 for the moon phase and calendar complications, along with the “big date” aperture, which communicates from earlier versions. But even in all that activity, the deep blue sunray dial is possibly the best possible canvas to comparison all the polished indicators and elements delineating the info on every register. Be aware that the sunray texture ratdiates not from the middle, but by the Chopard emblem. The Lunar One’s alternating brushed and polished platinum case measures an extremely full 43mm wide, and squeezing this watch in a event any smaller will be nearly impossible. The simple fact that the opinion is 11.47mm thick will probably keep it from appearing too large on the wrist for people who may be inclined towards a smaller case.The subdials do appear to me to be squeezing the numerals around them. It gives me the exact same feeling as when I am unfortunate enough to have the middle seat on a plane, packed with two individuals too wide for their own chairs. The sensation of these subdials being a little “bloated” certainly makes the idea of this opinion being even one millimeter narrower seem like a balloon-popping proposition.The Calibre 96.13-L beating within is regarded as Chopard’s crown jewel, barely a small accomplishment at a steady of pretty intriguing calibers at both ends of the complication spectrum. Requiring adjustment only once every 122 years (hypothetically speaking), the perpetual calendar nicely complements the moon phase indicator, but it’s no typical moon phase indicator using a static aperture displaying the current form of the moon. This one is an “astronomical moon phase” complication which orbits the 6:00 enroll in accordance with its proper stage and astronomical positioning in the night skies.

The heart of the new Lunar One is, of course, an in-house Calibre 96.13-L, an L.U.C. crown jewel operating at 28,800 vph and cranking a pretty lengthy power reserve of 65 hours. This is arguably touted as an accomplishment in a stable of pretty interesting calibers at both ends of the complication spectrum. This movement is requiring adjustments once every 122 years, that is certainly the job of your descendants. One of the special signature features of this movement is its astronomical moon phase complication orbiting the sub-dial at 6. The nighttime sky presentation is fascinatingly in realtime, this is indeed a lovely astronomical positioning that is somehow akin to the latest GPS devices, fooled me.

Chopard is a Swiss luxury business focused on watches, jewelry and accessoires. Chopard was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard. The Chopard manufacture in Fleurier generates L.U.C movements that could be found in several Chopard timepieces. Notable Chopard watches for men and Chopard women’s watches comprise the Happy Diamonds, Imperiale, Classic Racing, L.U.C., Classic. Being a luxury focused brand Chopard is both popular for its Chopard men’s watches and the bead watches it creates for women.For the previous few years, Chopard has celebrated the Chinese Rolex by releasing a special edition of the L.U.C XP Urushi watch ever year. This season, as an example, it was the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Rooster, which includes an amazing handmade Rooster on the dial. According to the Lunar calendar, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster. For 2018, Chopard has decided to go 1 step farther and has just released a one-off piece known as the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac.Chopard’s L.U.C set is home to the brand’s most lavish artisanal watches, and also the L.U.C Perpetual T: Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac follows in this tradition. The highlight of this watch has to be the situation. It features a 43mm-wide 18k rose gold case that’s about 15mm thick, and the entire case is hand-engraved with all the 12 Chinese zodiac signs employing the champlevé technique. This means the case is first engraved by hand and then full of material. In the instance of the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T: Nature of the Chinese Zodiac view, the instance is first engraved and then full of black patina to make images in the Chinese Zodiac.

Furthermore, part of the movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback where its dashing Côtes de Genève stripes are proudly displayed. The contrasting circular-grained and beveled movement bridges and a 22k gold micro-rotor are a rarity in automatic perpetual calendars.

The bridges have been adorned with a refined Côtes de Genève pattern and there is beveling and polishing work throughout. Of course, this motion boasts the Poinçon de Genève — also known as the Geneva Seal or Hallmark of Geneva. The Geneva Seal is a more infrequent quality certification, booked only for watches created in the canton of Geneva. Refreshed and rendered more rigorous a few decades ago, the Geneva Seal currently comprises a set criteria regarding not only the aesthetic qualities of the movement, but also that of the instance, as well as testing functionality claims including precision, power book, water resistance, and most of functions.Getting back to something I mentioned in the beginning is that the subject of the ‘Grand Cru’ designation of the watch. The title will eternally remain engraved on the case-back — and will likely induce sales reps and owners to elicit exactly the exact same perplexed and somewhat tortured explanation that a guy with the most distinguished and raised taste in wine would be the guy who wears this timepiece.There actually is a bit more to it than that, it just is not actually hauled about. The only way I can look at this seemingly irrelevant engraving and take it as something meaningful is through contemplating it since the Scheufele family shyly peeking through the thick Chopard curtain for an instant. Over half a century ago the Scheufele family bought Chopard, a dying company with only a few employees abandoned, and built it into one of their most successful and, to date, independent luxury jewelry and watch brands around. Chopard’s watch company — and, more importantly from our perspective, the quality Chopard L.U.C watches — is your brain- and love kid of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, a well-spoken, humble, second-generation member of the Chopard-Scheufele era.

I’d have loved for its movement to have Chopard’s “Quattro” system of four piled mainspring barrels — that provides around eight times of power reserve. I’m not sure if Chopard intends to update its center perpetual calendar movement later on with more power book, but the L.U.C 96.13-L isn’t lacking. It’s two stacked mainspring barrels that offer 65 hours of power reserve. Of course, the movement is also an automatic using a strong 22k gold micro-rotor. Chopard recently published a similar looking watch in the L.U.C Perpetual Chrono (hands-on here at precisely the exact same platinum/blue dial combination). The Perpetual Chrono adds a 12 hour chronograph into the endless calendar pair of complications — even though it is founded on a totally different movement, and unlike the L.U.C Lunar One, which is an automatic, and the Perpetual Chrono is manually wound. If you are dying to get a chronograph/calendar combo, then the choice for you will be obvious — however as a more practical daily wearer, I enjoy the Lunar One a bit more.Not just is the Lunar One free in the sub-dial “ears” (a decorative thing) that aren’t popular with all people about the Perpetual Chrono’s dial, it is also cheaper by about $40,000 (when comparing platinum models). The L.U.C Perpetual Chrono can also be a larger watch coming from a 45mm wide circumstance, versus the Lunar One’s still large (such as a dress watch) 43mm wide size. Speaking of size, the Lunar One is not a small watch, and given the broad lugs, wears large to get a 43mm wide watch. That’s not a bad thing, and that I know of many people who like traditional watches in this particular size. With that said, provided that watch fans are very particular about the sizes they like, if you’re interested in a more modestly-sized apparel watch, then search for perpetual calendar watches elsewhere (there are arguably many).

As if the Geneva Seal is not enough, the Lunar One also bears a COSC-certified chronometer. This only applies to ultra-exclusive independent certification of excellence ensuring topmost quality when it comes to finishing, assembly, movement casing, and adjustment of the watch. At $67,900 it’s all worth it. For more info, please visit chopard.com
