Interlacing technical achievements and innovative aesthetic art, Chopard launched the LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist watch. The LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist has an unprecedented winding system called Winding Assistance System. The system is specially designed for this new watch, and it is also the first invention in the world. Unusual movement and four barrels, this new watch naturally wins respect for its high-quality technology and original unique body shape. Chopard enhances the Twist series with a superior complex movement: the tourbillon. Limited edition of 100 LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist watches.
The design of the LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist cleverly reinterprets the essence of tradition-using vertical and horizontal axes. Therefore, it also embodies the concept of Twist, and Chopard Watchmaking Factory has also injected this element into the Tech series-technically showing that Chopard focuses on technology research and development. The LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist thus has the perfect combination of originality and timepiece creativity.
Featuring the unique aluminum frame of Chopard, the tourbillon is elegantly set at 7 o’clock, and the second hand is equipped with a blue steel arrow shape. The delicate appearance of the tourbillon is even more pronounced by the curved bridge on the circular window of the movement. The power reserve is located at 1 o’clock, and the power is displayed in an arc to echo this spectacular structure. The two horizontal wavy lines perfectly match the geometric arrangement, creating an overall soft visual effect. The latter is further highlighted by the Arabic numerals displayed on the upper half of the dial, allowing the tourbillon to leave more space in the lower part, at a glance. Proprietary LUC 4TBST mechanical movement with the authoritative côtes de Genève.
Unique LUC ‘Quattro’ ® technology consists of two sets of stacked barrels. The proprietary LUC 4TBST manual winding movement guarantees a power reserve of up to 9 days. This extreme masterpiece is certified by the highly accurate Swiss COSC Swiss Observatory. The movement is equipped with Chopard’s proprietary variable inertia Variner® balance spring for perfect adjustment. The case is 18mm white gold with a diameter of 42mm and includes a strengthened sapphire crystal on the case back.
The 18K white gold crown is set at 4 o’clock and is equipped with the LUC logo and the ‘winding assist system’ WAS-specially designed for this watch. The LUC logo is depressed on the crown, allowing users to adjust the movement with a small crank handle. Including the crank handle, there are 24 individual components, which are inlaid with gold. The LUC Tourbillon Tech Twist watch in the form of Twist carefully sets the crown at 4 o’clock, so it is comfortable to wear at home. Hand-stitched alligator strap with 18K white gold folding buckle.
