Chopard Introduces New L.U.C Lunar Twin Dual Moon Phase Watch
The new Chopard L.U.C Lunar Twin dual moon phase watch is like a small piece of sky and stars fused into the wrist, poetic. The new L.U.C Lunar Twin watch is a perfect fusion of technology and dream. The self-made high-tech movement is revealed through the poetic moon phase function: the precision is extremely high, and the error between the timing mechanism and the actual moon phase cycle is only one day every 122 years.
The graceful deviation to the 1 o’clock position indicates that the moon phase function of the two hemispheres complements the central hour and minute hands, the small second hand is at 9 o’clock, and the calendar window is at 4 o’clock. This new watch is subtle and subtle, yet it shows the finest craftsmanship of fine watchmaking. It is equipped with a self-made LUC 96.21-L automatic winding movement and uses the Chopard Twin® patented technology-coaxial superimposed dual mainspring, which can provide long A power reserve of 65 hours. This watch is certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC), with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. It can be opened to see the movement of the movement.
Only 1 day error every 122 years
The moon seen on Earth changes with its revolution: it is completely illuminated by the sun (moon moon), completely hidden in darkness (new moon), or only partially illuminated (different moon phases). The two phases of the same moon are a new moon, separated by 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.8 seconds.
To achieve such precision in watch function is very complicated, only the extraordinary craftsmanship of Chopard Watchmaking Factory can accomplish this feat. The L.U.C Lunar Twin dual moon phase watch has an extremely precise structure. Only the roulette of the moon phase display has 135 gears. The precision is extremely high. The error between the timing mechanism and the actual moon phase cycle is only one day every 122 years. Whether in the southern or northern hemisphere, different moon phases can be clearly displayed in a specially-made large window.
The L.U.C Lunar Twin dual moon phase watch adopts the new L.U.C series aesthetic standard, and the 18K white gold case with a diameter of 40 mm is beautiful and charming. The lugs are polished and satin-finished. After redesigning, the lugs will enhance wearing comfort and balance. The crown is engraved with ‘L.U.C’, which is softer and slender but does not affect practicality. This veritable precision instrument has outstanding craftsmanship, and the only exquisite dial shows good visibility: the silver-plated satin-finish sunburst captures the sparkling light, and the rhodium-plated hands combined with the unique “Prince-Concubine” style are carefully designed. The Roman numeral scale is set to the same color.
