Baselworld 2013 preview…
This year Chopard will introduce a second model in the LUC “Engine One” collection. Named the Engine One H, this piece is similar to the LUC Engine One tourbillon (2010), except it has been rotated 90 degrees for a horizontal dial presentation. The Engine One is inspired by well, an engine, though it is a watch I find to have a somewhat radical look. At least when I think of the L.U.C watches, which represent the pinnacle of finishing from Chopard. I’m not sure which is more “normal” the new horizontal layout or the original vertically positioned model, probably this one. A conversation piece, that’s for sure.
Chopard L.U.C Engine One H
Limited Edition 100 pieces
44.5mm x 35mm titanium case
Look closely to see the center-set hour/minute hands; at nine of clock is the “Full/Empty” power reserve display; at three oclock is the tourbillon with Chopard’s variable intertia balance wheel
