Chopard launches limited edition L.U.C 1937 to celebrate 150 years
June 2011: Celebrating it’s 150th anniversary, Chopard has launched a limited edition of the L.U.C 1937 model – a mechanical tribute to the company’s watchmaking heritage. Two new versions of this steel watch are now being introduced: one with a porcelain-type white dial and the other with a satin-finished silver-toned dial. The core of this collection is the new high-performance L.U.C 1.010 movement.
Both the versions have Dauphine hands personalised for the L.U.C collection in rhodium or black depending on the version. The 42mm steel case has a screw-lock crown at 3 o’clock and water resistance to 50 metres.
The L.U.C 1937 model beats to the rhythm of the L.U.C Calibre 1.010 and its 28,800 vibrations per hour. This mechanical self-winding movement is chronometer-certified by the COSC and has a 60-hour power reserve.
These new versions are fitted with a black alligator leather strap lined with brown alligator leather and secured by a steel pin buckle.
