In 2010, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Chopin, the brand launched a limited edition L.U.C 1937 watch, paying tribute to the brand’s long-standing watchmaking heritage. Rooted in the L.U.C 1937 series of Chopin’s classic timeless watchmaking tradition, two new stainless steel watches are now available, one with a white ceramic dial and the other with a silver matte dial. Both models are equipped with the new L.U.C 1.010 caliber with outstanding performance.
Since its establishment in 1860, Chopin has experienced many decisive moments that have played an important role in brand development. 1937 was a crucial year in the history of Chopin. At that time, the founder of the brand, Louis-Ulis-Chopin’s grandson, Paul-André-Chopin, Paul-André Chopard, decided to leave the Jura Valley and leave Louis-Ulis. -The workshop created by Chopin turned to Geneva for brand development. It was in Geneva that Chopin grew and thrived. In commemoration of this important history of the brand, Chopin launched the first L.U.C 1937 watch in 2010, condensing the essence of Chopin’s watchmaking heritage in its purely implicit appearance.
Elegant watch, timeless
Today, Chopin has launched two new classic L.U.C 1937 watches. One of them has a white ceramic dial with black Roman numerals and track-type minute markers. The other is equipped with a silver matte dial with rhodium-plated Roman numerals and a transfer track minute scale. Both models are equipped with L.U.C.’s princess-style hands. Depending on the model, rhodium-plated or black hands are used. The 42-mm diameter stainless steel case has a novel appearance and contours. The screw-down crown at 3 o’clock ensures the watch is water-resistant to 50 meters. The flange of the watch is three-dimensional frosted, the lugs are polished, and the bottom is sapphire crystal.
L.U.C 1.010 movement: precise travel time, excellent performance
The new L.U.C 1937 watch is equipped with the new L.U.C 1.010 self-winding mechanical movement. This movement has been certified by the Swiss Official Observatory COSC, with a vibration frequency of 28’800 times / hour and a power reserve of up to 60 hours. The structure is sturdy and has the following functions: central hours, minutes, seconds display, date window at 6 o’clock. In addition, there is a stop-seconds function to facilitate accurate time adjustment. The performance of the L.U.C 1.010 movement is accurate and reliable, and the size can be adjusted at will. It can be matched with a variety of models to ensure that Chopin watches can be independent and autonomous, so it has also become an important benchmark in the history of L.U.C movements.
The new L.U.C 1937 watch shows the beauty of masculinity, but also reveals exquisite elegance. It uses a hand-stitched black alligator leather strap and a brown alligator leather strap, with a brown alligator leather lining and a pin stainless steel buckle.
