CHOPARD @ L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon in Rose Gold

CHOPARD L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon is now available in 18-carat rose gold. Equipped with the L.U.C 04.01-L tourbillon movement machined like an engine block and mounted on anti-vibration pads, the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon Rose Gold pays refined and elegant homage to the field of motor sports. Since 2010, the various versions of the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon have distinguished themselves by their powerful character and modern lines. The new variation in 18-carat rose gold lends an aura of elegant refinement to a decidedly sporty watch, perfectly rounding out the series of mechanical thoroughbreds that pay vibrant tribute to the world of car racing and performance. Fitted with a chestnut brown hand-sewn alligator leather strap enhanced by four reinforced inserts evoking the seats of classic racing cars, it features an 18-carat rose gold case that is water-resistant to 50 metres. Its gently curving screw-in lugs are streamlined like car wings, and these aerodynamic elements guarantee excellent comfort on the wrist and enhance the unique presence of this sleekly elegant 35.4 x 44.4 mm case. Also inspired by the automobile world, the dial is a study in transparency. The Arabic numerals and hour-markers are engraved beneath the glareproofed sapphire crystal and then tinted in blue – a colour also featured on the power-reserve indicator and the movement screws. This deep shade creates a striking contrast with the rhodiumed black parts of the mechanical movement and judiciously emphasises both the sporty and elegant nature of this resolutely unclassifiable model representing a cross between traditional Fine Watchmaking and a concept-watch approach.
