As it opens its newest boutique on Rue du Rhone in Geneva, Chopard unveils the new L.U.C XPS watch in platinum with a stunning midnight blue dial. The ultra-thin watch is created in a limited edition of 25 pieces and complies with the stringent criteria of the “Poincon de Genève” hallmark. The hallmark is hand engraved on the case back of each watch.
Since 1886, the “Poinçon de Genève” has been guaranteeing an exceptional standard of quality by requiring all manufacturers wishing to stamp it on their timepieces to duly finish and perfect all components in such calibres. It thereby ensures a high level of precision, while perpetuating manual watch making skills.
To power this new L.U.C XPS, the watchmakers of Chopard Manufacture have equipped it with the in-house made L.U.C Calibre 96.01-L. This choice has enabled them to achieve the feat of accommodating within an ultra-thin case a self-winding movement fitted with two barrels ensuring a 65-hour power reserve and driving central hour and minute hands along with small seconds at 6:00 and the date at 3:00. The L.U.C XPS Poinçon de Genève is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
