Baselworld 2012: Rounding out the 2012 Chopard collection is the exemplary Chopard L.U.C Lunar One watch. First launched in 2006 but now redesigned with a new aesthetic, the L.U.C Lunar One features a 43mm rose gold case housing a L.U.C. 96.13-L caliber with a perpetual calendar and orbital moon-phase display. In addition to the “Dauphine” style hands, the hours are now displayed as Roman numerals, framed by a railtrack graduation of a black transferred type similar to the three subdials indicating the small seconds, month and day of the week. The movement has a beautifully decoratd micro-rotor, is COSC rated and also meets criteria to obtain the Geneva Seal. It drives the hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock, a perpetual calendar with large twin-aperture date display at 12 o’clock, days of the week and 24-hour indication at 9 o’clock, as well as months and leap years at 3 o’clock.
