Chopard celebrates it’s 150th anniversary this year. The Geneva-based watch- and jewellery house is doing so by introducing the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon, a high-end model which demonstrates the mechanical expertise of Chopard, and combines it with the automotive passion of the marque.
The result is a high-end watch that breaks with traditional watch design principles. The Engine One is powered by an exceptional “motor”, proprietary L.U.C Calibre 1TRM. Machined like an engine block and mounted on silent-blocks, the mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement was completely in-house designed, developed and produced .
This L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon model houses a proprietary mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement, L.U.C Calibre 1TRM. In much the same way as a car engine, this movement is mounted on silent blocks – that absorb shocks – and held by three lever arms inserted into the case middle.
Like the most coveted sports cars, the titanium L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon is issued in a limited edition of 150 pieces. The watch is a beautiful and original piece, and a serious consideration for petrolheaded collectors. In the Netherlands, the price is set at € 53.030,-
