Chopard L.U.C All-in-One – Platinum and Rose Gold Limited Editions

Chopard presents two versions – in platinum and rose gold – of the exclusive and ultra-complicated L.U.C All-in-One watch that was originally introduced in 2010 in white gold edition to mark the company’s 150th anniversary.

The L.U.C All-in-One watch encompasses 14 indications on its two faces, including perpetual calendar and astronomical functions, as well as a tourbillon. Entirely crafted in the Chopard Haute Horlogerie workshops, this tourbillon watch with perpetual calendar and astronomical indications comes in two 10-piece limited series: 10 in platinum and 10 in 18-carat rose gold.

Platinum version of the L.U.C All-in-One watch features an elegant hand-guilloché dial in a grey-blue colour and rose gold model comes with an eye-catching hand-guilloché dial in a verdigris colour obtained by galvanic treatment.

Combining extreme complexity with the assured and distinctive elegance of the L.U.C collection, these timepieces bear the prestigious Poinçon de Genève stamp certifying Chopard’s exclusive craftsmanship and in-house manufacturing capabilities.

Designed for contemporary gentlemen, sure of their taste and fascinated by exceptional mechanisms, the L.U.C All-in-One is a symbol of Fine Watchmaking for the Maison Chopard. This grand complication watch subtly proclaims its horological sophistication on both sides and throughout the entire seven days of its exceptional power reserve.

The L.U.C All-in-One is equipped with L.U.C Calibre 05.01-L. With its 516 components, this movement comprises the largest number of complications ever offered within a single L.U.C watch. Its 14 indications spread between its twin faces sum up the broad range of skills mastered by Chopard Manufacture. Equipped with four barrels, this mechanical hand wound caliber can deliver seven days of exceptional power reserve.

The L.U.C All-in-One is graced with exceptional finishing throughout. The 46 mm case with its polished and satin-brushed surfaces is extremely ergonomic and thus makes a perfect fit on the wrist. All the case-back inscriptions are hand-engraved.

The dial is a solid gold plate with a guilloché motif radiating out from the large date at 12 o’clock. It is then coloured in grey blue to match platinum, and in verdigris for a bold combination with 18-carat rose gold. Even more meticulous concern for detail has been lavished on the 516 movement components, hand-crafted in accordance with the noblest traditional techniques.

The ergonomic and horological quality of the L.U.C All-in-One is also apparent in the legibility of its numerous complications. Each sector, indicator and gauge is perfectly sized. All clearly and generously display their respective information on exceptionally finely crafted dials. On the front side, the perpetual calendar with large date display appears through large apertures and subdials, alongside a magnificently wrought tourbillon.

On the back, the equation of time, power reserve and sunrise and sunset times frame the orbital moon-phase indication. The L.U.C. All-in-One is fitted with a brown or blue alligator leather strap complete with alligator lining.
