At Baselworld 2018, Chopard reinterpreted the iconic L.U.CQuattro of the L.U.C series. This watch is equipped with the L.U.C98.01-L movement, has a power reserve function of up to 9 days, and is certified by the Swiss Official Observatory Precision Timepiece, which is a model of contemporary elegance. Let’s take a look together.
The watch case has a total diameter of 43 mm and is crafted in exquisite 18K rose gold. The middle layer of the case is delicately modified with satin texture. The bezel is polished and the case back is engraved by hand. Its meticulous carving has obtained the strict Geneva mark certification.
The watch presents a new dial with a very contemporary design and a simple style. The entire dial is polished with a vertical silver satin-finished silver dial, which is subtly matched with the contrasting blue hands. At 6 o’clock, there is a sub-dial, which inherits the signature features of the L.U.CQuattro watch. This small dial is equipped with a small second hand and a date display function indicated by hands. The scale design is more detailed and simplified. At 12 o’clock, the power reserve display is subdivided into 9 scales, which echoes up and down symmetrically with the sub-dial. The power reserve display is also the unique design of the L.U.CQuattro watch, with a 180-degree fan-shaped design. The minute scale circle is equipped with large Arabic numerals ‘3’ and ‘9’ at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, combined with the blue three-dimensional applied hour markers. The shape of the hour markers follows the design of the most distinctive rocket-like pointer of the L.U.C series. The hands are covered with a SuperLumiNova luminous coating.
