L.U.C. Who’s Back

Marking the zenith of its 20th anniversary celebrations, Chopard launches its first minute repeater

To commemorate two decades of timepiece excellence, Chopard have unveiled a new model in its LU.C. collection – the brand’s first ever minute repeater – the L.U.C. Full Strike.


Boasting a plethora of firsts, perhaps the most intriguing aspect here is its transparent crystal gongs, striking the hours, quarters and minutes with remarkable clarity – the sapphire rings within creating a loudspeaker-esque effect likened to the sound “as a silver knife were delicately tapping a Bohemian crystal glass”.


The result of some 17,000 hours of development, Chopard’s own calibre 08.01-L movement, in addition to its aural qualities, addresses many traditional issues found with minute repeaters – a series of security systems, for example, protecting the delicate workings from jarring and potentially detrimental movements.


In a polished 18-carat Fairmined rose gold case at 42.5mm diameter and 11.5mm thick, with satin-brushed caseband, Chopard will produce only 20.
