The utilitarian name of the Chopard L.U.C All-in-One fails to do justice to a collection of timepieces of exceptional complexity and artistry and craftsmanship.
The watches have 14 indications on its two faces, including several calendar and astronomical functions, as well as a tourbillon.
The entire collection comes in two limited series of 10 in platinum and 10 in 18-carat rose gold, all bearing the Poinçon de Genève. One has a platinum case framing a grey blue dial, while the face of the other is graced with subtle shades of verdigris.
The company says the watches represent the pinnacle of Chopard’s in-house approach to watch manufacturing and a distillation of its craftsmanship.
The All-in-One first appeared in 2010, Chopard’s 150th anniversary year. The 2018 models house the L.U.C Calibre 05.01-L in 46mm cases with its and satin-brushed surfaces.
The dial is a solid gold plate with a guilloché motif radiating out from the large date at 12 o’clock. It is then colored in grey blue to match platinum, and in verdigris for a bold combination with 18-carat rose gold.
