Chopard L.U.C Quattro Limited Edition For 2018

The L.U.C Quattro is one of the major watches in the L.U.C collection from Chopard launched in 1996 and representing the brand’s top line. The new L.U.C Quattro is designed for the contemporary gentleman, with the modern spirit of its redesigned dials and new straps, and its “Poinçon de Genève” certification, limited to 50 pieces.

The new Chopard L.U.C Quattro stay true to the design codes the brand created in 1996 but now adds some modern touches, a slightly more casual style and some coloured accents, features the signature L.U.C Quattro 6 o’clock subdial, containing both small seconds and a pointer-type date indication. Its graduations have been refined and simplified. At 12 o’clock sits the nine-day power-reserve display also emblematic of the L.U.C Quattro, shaped like a fan unfurled over a 180° angle. The minute circle is punctuated by two large 3 and 9 o’clock Arabic numerals, and by blued applied hour-markers.

The case, even though containing a 9-day power reserve movement, has slender proportions even though bolder than the original model, with a 43mm diameter but only 8.84mm thick.

The 43mm case of the L.U.C Quattro is crafted from 18-carat rose gold. Its caseband is satin-brushed, its bezel polished and its back hand-engraved. The scrupulous attention required by the “Poinçon de Genève” quality hallmark has been lavished on this model that comes fitted with a strap featuring styling and material making their first appearance in the L.U.C collection. The bracelet is made of woven-effect blue calfskin leather with an alligator leather lining.
