Introducing Chopard Updates The L.U.C Perpetual Twin
As a piece of what might have been Chopard’s Baselworld 2020 declarations, the brand has dispatched two new cycles of their L.U.C Perpetual Twin . Close by the current steel/silver dial form, the L.U.C Perpetual Twin would now be able to be had in steel with a blue dial or 18k rose gold with a ruthenium dim dial. The L.U.C line addresses a portion of Chopard’s most intricate watchmaking, and from both a worth and a completing viewpoint, the COSC-ensured execution of the L.U.C Perpetual Twin makes for an extremely engaging and present day QP offering.
I saw this 43mm wide QP face to face at Baselworld 2016 when it was dispatched. L.U.C models consistently hang out in my memory since they offer an extremely undeniable degree of completing when compared against others at their value point and are regularly a delight to photo (particularly in large scale). For these new forms, the configuration stays very Chopard, with a practically energetic blue dial and a more exemplary rose gold/dark dial choice. Both come on coordinated ties as found in the photographs and both have show casebacks offering a perspective on the dazzling development within.
Powered by the L.U.C 96.22-L, similar to the first model, these Perpetual Twins are COSC-ensured and tick at 4 Hz while offering a double opening enormous date show, a full QP show, and standard time. With 65 hours of force save upheld by two barrels, the 99.22-L has a 22-karat miniature rotor that truly completes a fairly flawless movement.
Pricing begins at $24,700 for the steel (in either the current silver dial or the new blue dial). As a rich and significant option in contrast to other “passage level” steel QPs from extravagance brands – this is really relative, I am mindful – like the JLC Master Ultra Thin Perpetual ($19,600) or the Glashütte Original Senator Excellent Perpetual Calendar ($22,300), the L.U.C Perpetual Twin merits a look (and rose gold never hurt anyone).
