Chopard – LUC Full Strike Tourbillon

At the end of 2016, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the watch factory, Chopard launched the first minute repeater watch belonging to the LUC series. This timepiece won the 17th Geneva watch industry’s highest honor “Golden Needle Award” watchmaking award The competition (GPHG) was held in 2017.

For 2022, their flagship collection is further enriched with the LUC Full Strike Tourbillon, an exclusive creation that adds a tourbillon with sapphire bridges to a monolithic sapphire minute repeater.

The LUC Full Strike tourbillon strikes the hours, quarter hours and minutes on transparent crystal gongs. These sapphire rings are an integral part of the crystal, forming a perfect speaker that faithfully transmits the sound of the hammer striking the sapphire, visible at 10 o’clock.

During striking, the crown is disconnected from the movement, so any time setting that could damage the movement cannot be made. The starter pusher built into the crown is also deactivated at this time, as a second attempt to trigger the mechanism could force the striking mechanism to couple the clutch.

The crown winds the movement in one direction and the striking mechanism in the other, thanks to a differential gear that transmits the force exerted by the hand to the corresponding barrel.

The dual power-reserve indicator at 2 o’clock features two coaxial hands, the first indicating the movement’s power reserve and the other indicating the number of strikes that can be started.Discount replica watches
