L.U Chopard Skeletec.

Mar 02, 2023,18:44 PM

Another interesting watch in the current collection, the LUC Skeletec. 40 mm white gold case, 7, 2 mm high. 

I don't know how ot call it. Open worked, skeleton? 

A superb micro rotor movement, the LUC 96-17 S, which is 3, 3 mm high, with a power reserve of 65 hours. Really delicious.

A class profile. 

Modern, class, eye catching. If only it could be a tad smaller.. At 38 mm, it would be totally irresistible. 

I like this brand more and more.

Movement a bit small...

...but I've always liked the LUC hands, and the legibility is better than most skeletons...

I completely agree, Nico. LUC is a brand that deserves much more attention and recognition.

They‘ve been consistently making some very appealing high horology watches. But I think many people associate the Chopard name with jewelry and fashion while overlooking the entirely separate LUC division. I still recall the impressive workmanship, beauty...  

Overall nice

I dislike the use of printed letters on the crystal, front or back

Correct this ref it wouldn't worn

But it could have been a goal in the design phase, or they could have an identifiable logo

Nicely executed. Nice brand indeed!
