The annual event in the film industry-the Cannes Film Festival in France has ended perfectly, but the competition among the watch brands participating in the film festival is still ongoing. For example, we have noticed that CHOPARD launched a model during the film festival. The new LUC XPS Azur limited watch attracts attention.
Chopard launches an L.U.C XPS Azur during the Cannes Film Festival. The white gold case with the brand’s rare blue dial echoes the name of the ocean of watches.
The origin of Chopard’s collaboration with Cannes Film Festival has started in 1998, so at the recent Cannes Film Festival, there are always celebrities wearing Chopard’s jewellery and watches. Although LUC XPS Azur is not the name of the official joint watch, but Chopard still incorporates a few elements related to the festival in the design. In addition, although it is a small three-hand watch with relatively basic functions, it uses a unique and rare brand. The color of the face plate, and the platinum material that is certified by fair mining, and itself adopts a very small number of release strategies, making this watch still attract a lot of attention.
The watch is as elegant and thin as the L.U.C XPS series. The 40mm is a perfect fit for a formal watch, and its precious metal case is not only noble, but the source of the material itself is very reassuring. The water resistance of this watch is not particularly eye-catching at 30 meters, but you don’t need to worry too much about it being unable to touch water in daily wear. LUC XPS Azur’s ‘Azur’ refers to the ocean. This echoes the geographical location of Cannes on the Mediterranean coast. Therefore, Chopard also used the blue faceplate to create a dazzling look for the watch. At first glance, the blue dial of the watch is divided into multiple levels. From the outer periphery to the inner circle are the minute scale ring, the time scale ring, the guilloche decoration, and the small depression slightly near the 6 o’clock direction. The seconds dial, in addition to its rectangular hour markers and hands, are rhodium-plated, with a blue dial and yellow scales, which look refreshing and contrasting when read.
The blue dial with yellow scales and details, and rhodium-plated silver-white hands and hour markers make the watch look simple and refreshing, allowing Sven’s formal watch to have a little more lively personality, not just the traditional serious restrained
LUC XPS Azur is equipped with a series of common LUC 96.01-L movements. This movement is equipped with a 22K gold micro-automatic disk, which allows for both thinness and winding efficiency. At the same time, the movement also has a dual barrel. Stores 65 hours of kinetic energy for the last 3 days of the chain, and if you think this specification is only the basic of high-end watches, then look at the various polishing on the movement such as Geneva ripples, fish scales, and radial patterns on the automatic plate. , Plus the chamfer polishing of the edge of the part, from this small detail, you can see the craftsmanship level of the watch factory. In the direction of the transparent bottom cover near 6 o’clock, you can also directly see the limited number of the watch locally. The number of only ten makes this watch’s collection value very unusual.
The watch is equipped with the L.U.C 96.01-L movement, equipped with a micro-automatic disk to effectively reduce the thickness of the movement. In addition, the movement has passed the Swiss Observatory certification and the Geneva mark, highlighting its excellent workmanship and time quality.
By the way, this watch can be found on the bottom plate and the case of the eagle and key symbol of Geneva. In addition, the word ‘CHRONOMETER’ at 12 o’clock on the face plate also reveals that it has obtained COSC certification accuracy. The mining certification comes in. This is another Chopard triple-authentication watch. It has reached an equally attractive appearance and connotation, and has become a new force in the LUC XPS family.
