Elegant appearance, performance first
Elegance is the exquisiteness and exquisiteness that reaches the pinnacle. It is the full fit and perfect expression of the shape design and internal functions. This meticulous pursuit of the ultimate elegance was applied to the design of the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch, making it an elegant gem that perfectly fits the wrist. This watch was designed and designed by Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, combining Chopard’s top watchmaking skills. It is the same as Chopard’s first L.U.C barrel watch launched in 2001, but it is the only watch with a self-winding movement driven by a micro-oscillator. Its simple and low-profile dial, perfect structural proportions, impeccable case and movement make it an indispensable collection for modern gentlemen with a taste of life.
Four years after the launch of the L.U.C 1963 by Chopard, Chopard is proud to present a brand new watch that inherits the iconic model: the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru, a tribute to the classic pocket watches in the history of the brand. These pocket watches allowed the brand founded by Louis-Julis Chopard in 1860 to establish an international reputation, so this new model has a deeper emotional factor for Chopard. It again uses a white porcelain dial design with black Roman numerals, its rail-shaped scale perfectly complements the design of the center of the dial, and the small seconds dial at six o’clock becomes a small detail of the entire dial and balances The role of the entire dial design. The L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch, created by Chopard’s heritage and craftsmanship over the years, is noble and elegant in its lineage, making it a premium watch.
Carrying the glory of the imprint of Geneva, this Swiss observatory timepiece symbolizes Chopard’s immense respect for the superiority and essence of traditional watchmaking as the Geneva watch family. It is in this spirit that Chopard designs this uniquely shaped watch, which is reminiscent of the use of the Bertrange, Jupille or Tronçais forest. Wooden barrels made of high-quality oak make top wines extraordinary ageing.
Masterpieces of watchmakers
The barrel shape belongs to the traditional case shape, and you must be able to master the production skills of this special shape before you can successfully build it. Between the rectangle and the circle, the shape of the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch is not as rigorous as a rectangular watch, but has the softness and gentleness of a round watch. The maximum width of its case is almost equal to its height, making for a wide and generous dial. Thanks to its extraordinary design, the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch has a purely masculine temperament.
The case and mirror of the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch are convexly rounded. The case is extremely thin, with a maximum thickness of only 7.75 mm, which is almost the same as the ultra-thin shape of the L.U.C XPS watch. Its curved shape fits the wrist perfectly, making it comfortable to wear.
97.01-L movement: unique peerless
The exquisite elegance of the L.U.C Heritage Grand Cru watch is meticulous from the inside out. Its 97.01-L movement, which is only 3.3 mm thick, is the most rare: it is rare to have such a specially shaped movement in a specially shaped case. The movement is processed by the most advanced finishing technology of the Chopard watch factory: chamfering, polishing, round pearl polishing and Geneva corrugated decoration, all comply with the strictest standards of the Geneva mark.
The self-winding movement is driven by an engraved 22K gold miniature oscillating weight. It is driven by Chopard’s patented Twin® technology, which is stacked on top of two barrels. The combination of the two ensures a power reserve of 65 hours. Sufficient and regular power allows the 97.01-L movement to operate with the precision of the Swiss Observatory timepiece. In accordance with the request of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, Chopard’s co-president, each 97.01-L. Movement carried on LUC Heritage Grand Cru watches has been certified by the Swiss Official Observatory (COSC) .
