Chopard, the Swiss brand from Fleurier run by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, is well-known for its Mille Miglia and Monaco Historics chronographs. Its L.U.C. collection is devoted to haute horlogerie and features some of the more complicated movements utilised by Chopard.
With a 60-hour power reserve, the 31-jewel caliber LUC 01.06 movement powers an elegant watch with C.O.S.C. certification.
The 42mm-diameter steel/black case and black leather strap carry an air of high-tech motoring about them, yet stay away from the more obvious world of motorsports-related timepieces by eschewing a chronograph function.
