The Chopard L.U.C Regulator is a special watch which features two separated indications for the hours and the minuted. It also comes with a GMT function, a date, a small second-sub dial and a power reserve indicator.Side of Chopard L.U.C Regulator watch The sun-burst silver dial comes has no less than 6 indications: on the central axis we can find the minutes, with a large hand and a minute-track around the dial, at 3 comes the indication of the hours, at 4:30 is the date window, at 6 sits the small-second, at 9 is the the 24-hour second time-zone that can be adjusted independently with a pusher at 8 and, finally, at 12 we can find the power-reserve gauge. All the indications are however easily recognizable and the legibility remains pleasant. The dial is certainly loaded but has a clean, elegant look.Side of Chopard L.U.C Regulator watch 03
The Chopard L.U.C Regulator comes in a large 43mm case – 2mm or 3mm would have been welcome – but the thickness is still reasonable at 9.8mm. The case is made of 18k rose gold, alternating with polished surfaces and vertically brushed surfaces on the case bands. The Chopard L.U.C Regulator comes on a alligator strap stitched by hand, with a 18 rose gold pin-buckle.

Together with its complicated display, it also features a very long 216 hours power-reserve, due to the Quattro technology, meaning 4 barrels. Even with such a power, the calibre L.U.C 98.02-L has contained proportions – 30.4mm x 4.90mm. This movement is also precise, as it comes with a C.O.S.C chronometer certification.

The finish of this movement is also impressive, as it is stamped with the Geneva Hallmark, the assurance that all the pieces are finished with the highest level of details. The main-plate is circular-grained and the bridges are decorated with Geneva stripes and chamfered by hand, with polished beveled angles. Because of the 4 barrel, the movement doesn’t show a lot from its technicality but its details remains very pleasant.
