Chopard L.U.C XPS Poinçon de Genève platinum limited edition (Geneva Seal)

Specially made for the its new boutique in Geneva, this Chopard L.U.C XPS is a limited edition of 25 pieces, cased in platinum, with a gorgeous metallic blue dial bearing the Geneva Seal on it.   This watch is somewhat similar to the LUC XPS Poincon de Geneve Poinçon de Genève (Geneva Seal) 125th anniversary edition from 2011 (available direct from Chopard, $19,320); both have the Chopard Cal. 96.01-L.  This gracefully decorated caliber is an ultra-thin automatic with micro-rotor, two barrels, and COSC certification (pictured below).

As I say the blue dial is simply wonderful, with dauphine style hour and minute hands and baton-style hour markers.
