Chopard L.U.C Chrono One Flyback

A proud member of Chopard Manufacture collection, the L.U.C Chrono One Flyback houses an in-house developed and chronometer-certified L.U.C 11 CF chronograph movement equipped with flyback function.

Crafted in 18-carat white or rose gold, the 42 mm case of L.U.C Chrono One Flyback features an admirable blend of classical elegance and dynamic sportsmanship. Water-resistant to 30 metres, fitted with shaped pushers and a crown bearing the L.U.C logo, it is equipped with a sapphire glass and transparent.

The sunburst charcoal grey dial is a model of clarity, particularly with its two oversized hour and minute counters slightly offset from the crown axis. The slender, partially hollowed hour and minute hands, characteristic of the L.U.C collection, are coated in Superluminova to ensure optimal night-time readability.

Designed, developed and produced by the Chopard Manufacture, L.U.C Calibre 11 CF is an integrated chronograph movement equipped with a column wheel and comprises a flyback function. This calibre is an advanced version of the first Chopard chronograph movement, L.U.C Calibre 10 CF which powered the first Chrono One concept series. The fine-tuned L.U.C Calibre 11 CF is distinguished in particular by three innovative systems. The reset function operates by means of a lever pivoting three supple hammers, thereby ensuring optimal return of the counter hands and also cushioning the reset action (patent pending).

The L.U.C Calibre 11 CF also includes a “small seconds reset” function combined with a movement stop feature for a precise time setting (patent pending). Finally, the self-winding mechanism winds in both directions and comprises a unidirectional gear device (patent pending). This system avoids losses of energy and ensures optimal winding speed via the gold oscillating weight.

This first L.U.C Chrono One Flyback series-produced model comes in a choice of 18-carat rose or white gold. It is also available in a version enhanced by a bezel set with baguette-cut diamonds totalling 2.49 carats. The black or brown alligator leather strap is fitted with a gold folding clasp.
