A spectacular premiere
With the new L.U.C Flying T Twin, Chopard is unveiling its first calibre equipped with a flying tourbillon. Both technically and aesthetically sophisticated, this timepiece is distinguished by many refined features, such as a gold dial embellished by hand with two beautiful guilloché patterns, harmonious proportions, an ultra-thin case measuring a mere 7.2 mm in height and crafted from ethically certified “Fairmined” rose gold, and the “Poinçon de Genève” quality hallmark as well as a C.O.S.C. certificate for proven and tested precision.
The flying tourbillon is highlighted through a large diameter aperture at 6 o’clock providing a view right into the movement. Due to the absence of an upper bridge, the physical and visual lightness of the “whirlwind” is used to create a sense of transparency and depth.
Self-winding Calibre 96.24-L, just 3.30 mm thick, offers a 65-hour power reserve – supplied by two stacked barrels according to Chopard’s patented Twin technology – and is equipped with a 22-karat gold winding rotor. Only 50 pieces will be produced.
