CHOPARD – L.U.C XPS 35mm Esprit de Fleurier

This timepiece is a true treasure that dazzles both inside and out. All the premium materials that adorn it and make its mechanical heart beat are brimming with elegance, starting with the white gold 35mm case wrapped in a diamond bezel which illuminates its shimmering dial. Two silver dauphine-shape hour and minute hands burst from the heart of the blue lavender disc. Two diamonds on each of the eleven hour markers capture the light; number 12, the sole Arabic number, takes pride of place atop the mother-of-pearl surface whilst the small seconds pirouette in a “flinqué” engraved counter at 6 o’ clock. The self-winding calibre powering the L.U.C provides a 65-hour power reserve; look through the caseback and you’ll see the movement’s “fleurisanne” engravings. The age-old artisan engraving technique is typical of Fleurier where Chopard has been based for almost 20 years. Price: 45,000 CHF
