Chopard - L.U.C Lunar One

Chopard L.U.C Lunar One

Available in a 100-piece limited series Chopard’s perpetual calendar model with astronomical moon-phase display appears attired in 950 platinum framing a deep blue sunray-patterned dial.

First presented in 2005, the L.U.C Lunar One has over the years become the stellar model in the Chopard Haute Horlogerie collection. Its special status within the L.U.C collections has led Chopard to offer the L.U.C Lunar One in this exceptional version. It is treated to an unusual interpretation representing a shining mark of distinction: a 100-piece limited series with a case entirely made of 950 platinum. This supremely noble and totally unalterable metal features a dark, neutral grey colour. The 43 mm-diameter case is adorned with vertical satin-brushed sides along with a polished bezel and lugs, thereby creating pleasing textured effects that further enhance its visual depth and interest.

This case makes an impeccable match with the multilevel dials of the L.U.C Lunar One. Its surface is a firmly on-trend royal blue. Its sunray pattern radiates from the L.U.Chopard logo positioned at noon. This signature of the L.U.C collections naturally draws the gaze, appearing in a white shade that stands out against the rest of the dial. The perpetual calendar indications appear on a lower level, surrounded by bevelled rims that effectively highlight them. Their fonts are white so as to ensure perfect readability. The large applied Roman numerals with their own distinctive font are mirror-polished. A deep blue sky, studded with the actual stars of the Northern Hemisphere, also features a depiction of the moon.

L.U.C Lunar One
The calibre 96.13-L is a gem in the crown of Chopard Manufacture. Its perpetual calendar always gives the correct date, whatever the length of the month and including February with its exceptions. It is distinguished by its unique moon-phase display. The latter is not merely a disc rotating beneath the dial, but instead a complex set of components indicating the exact appearance of the moon. This orbital moon imitates the path of the evening star. Skilfully set by the finest Chopard watchmaking artisans, this display boasts astronomical precision, since it will take 122 years to accumulate a one-day time lag compared with the actual moon and only then will it require adjustment.

The L.U.C Lunar One is equipped with a self-winding movement calendars with a micro-rotor. The latter made of solid 22-carat gold is incorporated within the movement thickness which makes it slimmer and allows the owner to admire it through the sapphire crystal glass. Engraved with the historical L.U.C logo and finely guilloché-worked, it epitomises the extremely sophisticated finishing lavished on calibre 96.13-L. With its bevelled bridges adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif, its circular-grained baseplate, its mirror-polished steel parts and its regulator with swan’s neck adjustment, not only does it meet the highest quality standards of Chopard Manufacture, but also bears the prestigious Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark to which Chopard has remained loyal for many years.
