This Grey Dial Chopard L.U.C. Replica Watch is offered in a 42mm case with glare-proof sapphire crystal & exhibition sapphire case back, a screw down crown amusingly positioned at 4 o’clock, grey dial with applied Roman Numerals on a black alligator strap with steel pin buckle. The Mille Miglia family is the most famous exponent of their gentleman’s collection with a strong focus on sport with an obvious deference to car racing!
That said, sometimes us mere mortals must avert our eyes from Olympus & look for something that hits that aspirational note whilst maybe not hitting our wallets the same! This is where, in our opinion, Chopard L.U.C. Replica Watch have outdone themselves with the Limited Edition “L.U.C. 1937″ model commemorating 150 years since Chopard upped sticks from the Jura Valley & relocated to Geneva. Chopard is a brand world renown for their incredible Jewellery & typically by their Happy Sport collection for women.
However, despite quietly going about its horological business, Chopard’s in-house L.U.C. arm has developed some quite frankly stunning pieces of watch making to firmly make their mark in the world of high horology.
Housed in this remarkable case is the Chopard Manufacture L.U.C. 01.01-L movement, self winding with 60 hours power reserve & independently chronometer certified by C.O.S.C. For what would be classed as one of their entry level pieces carrying a L.U.C. movement, the fact this is Chronometer Certified illustrates just how much Chopard have raised their game.
However, once you get into the details, this is where the watch shows it is more than simply a sum of its parts. To begin with the case has beautifully satinised sides with polished bezel & lugs. Chopard Replica Watch, at times, could have been accused of under-finishing certain pieces but the detailing to this case feels like someones labour of love.
