This fantastic new timepiece is distinguished by its hand-guilloché gold dial, superb proportions and an ultra-thin case, in ethically certified “Fairmined” rose gold. It is limited to just 50 pieces. Inside its slim 40 mm diameter case is a new caliber, developed specifically for this timepiece and rounding off the range of complications featured in L.U.C models. It is regulated by a flying tourbillon as well as being automatic, a twin first for Chopard. This chronometer-certified movement also features a stop-seconds device, which is extremely rare on a tourbillon.

The flying tourbillon is highlighted through an aperture at 6 o’clock. A snailed motif appears around the chapter ring, while the central medallion is adorned with a honeycomb motif introduced in the 2017 L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer edition. The ruthenium grey dial strikes a contrast with the rose gold hands and hour markers.

Caliber 96.24-L is just 3.30 mm thick, the same size as the first Chopard Manufacture movement, Caliber 96.01-L, from which it has evolved. Its diameter, its 65-hour power reserve and its automatic winding via a 22K gold winding rotor are all in place. The movement has no date, in order to preserve the purity of the design and leave space for the tourbillon.

CHOPARD FLYING T TWIN BAGUETTE

Post the launch of the L.U.C Flying T Twin, the manufacture has further enhanced the watch to an exclusive limited offering, in platinum and diamonds. The L.U.C Flying T Twin Baguette timepiece represents all the suave elegance of a gentleman on the red carpet, and the exclusivity of the Cannes Film Festival, with only 10 pieces to be produced.
