The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T is a timely ode to the Chinese zodiac

One of a kind

The Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T is a timely ode to the Chinese zodiac
Meticulous craftsmanship and historical reverence collide to create the Chopard L.U.C Perpetual T—Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac

Flanking the timekeeper are reliefs of the Chinese zodiac rendered everlasting in precious metal. Twelve creatures are worked by hand into yielding gold and stained for depth with a black patina.

Chopard honours the traditional Chinese arts with an exquisite one-off creation: The L.U.C Perpetual T. Over 200 hours poured into production, the rare beauty boasts of a 18k rose gold case enlivened by painstaking champlevé and traditional Chinese iconography. The L.U.C Calibre 02.15-L adheres aesthetically to the traditions of haute horologie while the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark, a highly prestigious certification in the Swiss watch industry, adorns the back.

Also exuding beauty from within, the watch beats to the rhthym of one of the most prestigious complications. A tourbillon, perpetual calendar, and an over one-week power reserve propels this timepiece to the upper echelons of watchmaking. Only one piece of the L.U.C Perpetual T—Spirit of the Chinese Zodiac has ever been produced. This extremely rare work of art will be the object of an exclusive presentation to Asian Collectors at a private exhibition in Beijing.
