Chopard and the power of four
If two is company and three is a crowd then, surely, four is a party - and Chopard's new L.U.C Quattro is certainly something to celebrate about.
At Baselworld 2019, the addition of Quattro to Chopard's popular L.U.C line of ultra-luxury watches, gives a somewhat more sporty feel to the brand's more 'dressy' watch collection.
The design of the new Quattro has similar traits to last year's debute into the L.U.C range including a brushed-satin finished dial, but this year adds a splash of colour making it bolder presence on the wrist.
At its heart is a grey-green vertical satin-brushed dial punctuated by rhodium-plated hour-markers and Arabic numerals. L.U.C Quattro is issued in a 50-piece limited series, fitted with an impeccably chic matt brown double-sided alligator leather strap.
Beating inside the L.U.C Quattro is one of the original Chopard Manufacture movements: Calibre 98.01-L, distinguished by the patented Chopard Quattro Technology. Its two pairs of stacked barrels endow this certified chronometer with a maximum 216-hour power reserve, while taking up remarkably little space given that it measures just 3.7 mm thick – which in turn gives the watch an incomparably slim and elegant profile.
The 18-carat white gold L.U.C Quattro case measures 43 mm in diameter. Its middle is satin-brushed, its bezel polished and its back finely hand-engraved. All the scrupulous attention required by the ‘Poinçon de Genève’ quality hallmark has been lavished on this model featuring a subdial displaying both small seconds and the date.
