Unique in terms of its design, its sound and its natural elegance, the L.U.C Full Strike timepiece is appearing in a new 20-piece limited series featuring a platinum case and a grey-blue dial. It combines the nobility of the L.U.C 08.01-L minute repeater movement with that of a precious metal as well as Haute Horlogerie finishes acknowledged by the ‘Poinçon de Genève’ quality hallmark. With this collector's watch featuring chronometer-certified precision and patented innovations, Chopard Manufacture has created an exceptional minute repeater in which the sapphire crystal and gongs form a single entity, thereby generating a rich, crystal-clear, constant and powerful sound that is unique in the world.
In 2017, Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele was thrilled to receive the “Aiguille d'Or” – the “Best in Show” award at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève – for his L.U.C Full Strike timepiece that had emerged from the Manufacture the year before. Not only was it the first minute repeater in the L.U.C collection, but also a supremely innovative striking watch. By indicating the time through a combination of two notes, C# and F, as well as incorporating numerous world firsts within a complex movement, the L.U.C Full Strike model has continued to assert itself as a powerful link between Haute Horlogerie and musicality.
The glass protecting its dial, along with its gongs providing an audible indication of time, form a single whole. Machined in one piece from a block of sapphire, without any welding, screws or glue, it gives the L.U.C Full Strike watch a unique sound intensity. This as yet unmatched construction is the object of one of the many patents filed by Chopard during the 15,000 hours required to develop L.U.C Calibre 08.01-L.
