There are few things a gent truly needs when he embarks on a sojourn across the globe, and a sophisticated, high-performing travel watch is one of the indispensable essentials that make the list. Enter Chopard with a new L.U.C GMT One manufactured solely for this reason: Intensely practical, extremely cutting-edge and stylishly sleek.
A companion timepiece that captures the sought-after essence that defines a true travel watch, the maison does one better by imbuing its latest creation with a masterfully crafted integrated L.U.C 01.10-L calibre, a new self-winding movement with a 60-hour power reserve that's fabricated in-house at the Chopard Manufacture and chronometre-certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) board. Honed precision housed within a 42mm stainless steel case, this powerful core drives the dual-time function — the first of its kind in the L.U.C series, made to coincide with the Manufacture's 20th anniversary — as well as to flawlessly coordinate between the home and local time displayed on the dial.
Besides its impeccable mechanisms, the maison's expertise extends to the polished exterior, translating time into a stylish motion with a sunburst black dial highlighted by a slate gray arc to display 24 hours where the top half of the watch face bears orange numerals to dictate night and the lower portion in white indexes for daytime. Equipped with a fuss-free usability centred in two crowns, one at 2 o'clock for date and local time adjustment and the other to control the arrow-tipped hand that tracks the second time zone, the inherently distinguished L.U.C GMT One sees the world in perfect order.
The L.U.C GMT One is available at Chopard watch boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
