CHOPARD – L.U.C TIME TRAVELER ONE
AN IDEAL TIMEPIECE FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVELLERS
The first watch in the L.U.C collection to integrate a world time complication, this timepiece reads like an exclusive invitation to travel.
The figure behind the acronym L.U.C is none other than Louis-Ulysse Chopard, founder of the celebrated watchmaker and jeweller that still bears his name. To pay him tribute, the sophisticated timepieces in this eponymous range all feature complications in the finest Swiss watchmaking tradition. Chopard introduces the L.U.C Time Traveler One, rounding out the collection with the addition of world time. A superb selection for the avid international traveller, this timepiece shows all time zones at a glance.
Distinctive dauphine hands sweeping the dial indicate local time and the date is discreetly displayed at its centre, operated by the crown located at 2 o’clock. The rotating 24-hour ring boasts a day/night indicator in sync with the city disk displaying the 24 major time zones across the globe. Using the crown at 4 o’clock, simply set it to the local time and forget it!
This watch is powered by a COSC-certified self-winding movement with a 60-hour power reserve.
Vaunting a 42mm case in stainless steel, rose gold or precious platinum, the L.U.C Time Traveler One is the perfect companion for gentlemen travellers.
Prices: £10,540 (stainless steel) – £18,530 (rose gold) – £28,990 (platinum) chopard.com
