Chopard L.U.C Time Traveler One
By simultaneously keeping track of the time in every zone across the planet, it enables the wearer to keep an eye on what is happening in all four corners of the earth.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Chopard Manufacture, the brand is launching its very first worldtime watch, the L.U.C Time Traveler One. This model is available in three versions, offering pleasing variety with regard to their colour, appearance and preciousness to the gentleman traveller.
Like the earth’s atmosphere, the L.U.C Time Traveler One operates in concentric layers. A discreet central hand indicates the date, while a surrounding railway track circle serves to read off the hours and minutes of the local time zone, swept over by Dauphine-type hands adjusted via a crown positioned at 2 o’clock. Moving a further step outwards, a large 24-hour graduated ring operates in coordination with the disc bearing the reference cities symbolising the 24 main time zones. Once they are synchronised with the local time zone via the 4 o’clock crown, no more adjustment is required. Thus, it is possible to read off the time around the globe with the same hand as local time. This planet-wide vocation is echoed on the 4 o’clock crown bearing a modern stylised globe motif, while its 2 o’clock counterpart bears the L.U.C logo conveying an equally universal appeal.
The stainless steel L.U.C Time Traveler One features a sunburst black dial with contrasting orange accents. This model also comes in an 18-carat rose gold version as well as in a platinum version. In each of these three versions, the case of the L.U.C Time Traveler One measures 42 mm in diameter and 12.09 mm thickness.
The L.U.C Time Traveler One is based on an all-new calibre entirely developed, produced and finished in the Chopard Manufacture workshops in Fleurier. Calibre 01.05-L is distinguished by a 6.52 mm thickness and a functional nature that simplifies its owner’s life. This self-winding movement has a 60-hour power reserve. Chamfering and Côtes de Genève are applied to the various components of this new calibre. This finishing work may be viewed through a transparent case-back revealing the movement. Finally, like all L.U.C watches equipped with a function indicating the seconds, the L.U.C Time Traveler One is chronometer-certified by the COSC.
Movement development, product design, gold smelting, case machining, movement components, traditional hand-crafted decorations, polishing, assembly, adjustment and movement quality control, all watch production operations are performed in-house. The Maison applies them to the making of each watch in the L.U.C collection that pays homage to the company founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard (L.U.C). Firmly attached to pure lines and subtle details, Louis-Ulysse Chopard already knew how to adorn gentlemen with fine pocket-watches. The L.U.C Time Traveler One perpetuates this tradition while enriching it with the worldtime function.
Maison Chopard epitomises the alliance between watchmaking and jewellery. It has always known how to meet the expectations of its day, relying on four essential values: expertise, tradition, innovation and commitment to philanthropy, whilst working hard to pass on knowhow and skills to future generations.Find out more >
