Chopard watches owned the stage at Baselworld
The BaselWorld show is an occasion for all luxury watchmakers as well as high end jewelers to showcase their craft to their clientele with the deepest pockets. These businessmen and women make it a point to grab maximum attention to their respective pavilions. Chopard Watches always give their best at the show. The event of 2013 is no exception to the rule. The L.U.C. Perpetual T from Chopard Watches is fine piece of horology to grace the latest edition of the biggest watch and jewelry show on the planet.
What exactly is so special about this creation from Chopard Watches? The watch does have a rare combination of two of the most perplexing complexities known in watchmaking; a tourbillon and a perpetual calendar. Chopard Watches succeeded in perfectly blending these combinations in to this watch. Again, the L.U.C. Perpetual T has a unique power reserve that can let it run continuously for 9 days at a stretch! Thus, you need not worry about adjusting time and date on every other day or two.
According to Chopard Watches, this is one of the two most complicated watches ever created from their stable!
Chopard watches blended 2 amazing features into this timepiece
Are these complexities affecting the legibility of the L.U.C. Perpetual T? Not at all: the design aesthetics followed by Chopard Watches ensures that the legibility of the dial is not compromised in any way. In fact, the watch has a pleasantly attractive dial. On the dial, the date is displayed in a prominent manner. Chopard Watches chose to blend the day of the week feature as well as the day night feature on to the same sub dial located at 9 O’ clock position. You get to see a similar sharing feature at the sub dial at 3 O’ clock position as well. This sub dial denotes the current month of the year as well as the leap year status of the year.
This is easily one of the most complicated Chopard watches to date
The L.U.C. Perpetual T has a 45mm solid gold dial with silver plating done on it. An interesting design element of the watch is in the placement of the power reserve indicator. In most luxury watches, it’s on the dial. Here, Chopard Watches chose to make it visible through the see through sapphire crystal case back. Thus, the watchmaker is able to improve the legibility of the watch.
Chopard can be really proud about the finesse and finish given to the watch. The fact that Chopard Watches created every part of the watch in their own shop is a really proud accomplishment for the well-known watchmaker.
