Chopard L.U.C Tourbillon Qualité Fleurier Fairmined
As part of its commitment to sustainable and ethical luxury, Chopard, earlier this spring, launched the world’s first timepiece whose caseback, case, and bezel are made of Fairmined gold from South America. This elegant 43mm tourbillon with nine-day power reserve (placed over the 12 o’clock numeral) features alternating satin-brushed and polished surfaces making it the ultimate evening watch. Chopard’s grey dials are some of the most striking in the market — and this one couples a subtle sunburst on the ruthenium dial along with Roman numerals for a decidedly retro 1930s aesthetic. Beyond the use of its patented Quattro technology boasting four stacked and series-coupled barrels, what’s perhaps most striking about the timepiece is the gorgeous bridge cage in which the tourbillon is housed.
