The L.U.C All-in-one is a mechanical beauty! and the first thing i've noticed was how clear all indications are on both sides.
When you get 14 different information on a single timepiece, its design becomes for sure a challenge and i have to say that the Maison Horlogère Chopard easily passed the « test ». Everything is clear and beautifully shown! Very impressive.
In-house calibre/development, all 516 components are treated with a lot of care/respect. Even the origin of the materials (for the case, for instance) is important. Actually, Chopard uses Fairmined Gold. Mme. Caroline & Mr. Karl-Friedrich Scheufele are highly sensitive and involved in fair trades and if you want more details on this specific subject, i definitely recommend this quick read: https://www.chopard.com/intl/fairmined-ethical-gold/
On the front, you’ll find a Perpetual Calendar & Tourbillon. A small seconds hand is placed above the tourbillon cage, in the middle of the bridge (at 6 o’clock). The Big date is perfectly placed below « L.U.C CHOPARD » and also is the starting point of what i would call the « sun » dial decoration.
On the back, a 7 days of Power reserve indication is present at 12 o’clock. Above it, you can see on which city the calibre L.U.C 05.01-L is calibrated. In this case: Geneva. Obviously, its owner chooses the calibration at the appropriate time and you can imagine that it totally changes some indications like the sunrise & sunset, etc…
On the wrist, i find it pretty confortable! I did not feel its thickness. There is some weight which is normal with materials such as Rose Gold but nothing out of the ordinary.
For sure, amongst the best of the best in terms of mechanical complications.
Well done, CHOPARD! I love it.
