Driven by the very first skeleton calibre produced by the Chopard Manufacture, the L.U.C XP Skeletec in 18-carat white gold is the ticking expression of watchmaking innovation. Housed in an ultra-thin case, its black openwork dial framed by a bezel of diamonds proudly reveals the mechanical self-winding L.U.C 96.17-S calibre underneath, beating with a frequency of 28,800 v.p.h in a stunning guarantee of precision and reliability. This special edition is limited exclusively to 28 pieces.
Ultra-thin L.U.C Calibre 96.17-S, the first skeletonised movement ever made by Chopard Manufacture, features a blend of technical sophistication and refined elegance. This self-winding calibre beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz), boasts a 65-hour power reserve thanks to the Twin technology, a Chopard-patented system combining two coaxial barrels and representing a truly remarkable technical feat in light of the extreme slenderness of the 3.3 mm-thick movement. Its mainplate adorned with Ctes de Genève on the dial side, as well as its bridges, are meticulously openworked to reveal its inner workings. The latter are rhodium-plated black and create a contrast that cleverly highlights the gilded gear wheels visible both on the dial side and through the back.
