L.U.C XPS Presentation Box

Now this is something you don’t often see!  The bold color selections in these interpretations of the Chopard L.U.C XPS are champagne, cognac and burgundy (dials + matching straps) — offered as a trio in a special presentation box, they might remind you of something you’d find in a fine wine cellar — could this be the perfect set for the connoisseur of fine watches and fine spirits?!

As for me, Chopard’s L.U.C XPS is far and away one of the most desirous dress watches.  At 39.5mm by 7.13mm thin, the watch is supremely elegant, understated and thin on the wrist.  Though for me it is a bit unfortunate that these pieces are, as I understand, being sold as a 3-box set.  I say this because I would rather be able to have my pick of just one of these pieces (do I really need three L.U.C XPS watches??).   Got an email from Chopard informing me know that the pieces are available as a set (with the special box), or for individual purchase — price in any color is $16,780 (same price as the standard L.U.C XPS).
