L.U.C Perpetual T: Extremely clear perpetual calendar display
The function of the perpetual calendar is not only technical, but also related to ergonomics. Full date display, taking into account different days of the month and leap year cycles, these are the challenges that L.U.C 02.15-L movements are constantly facing. The multiple displays on the dark dial overcome these challenges and ensure the readability of the dial at night. First of all, L.U.C Perpetual T displays the date through a large double window. The 9 o’clock position is the day of the week display, and it also indicates the day and night change. The display at 3 o’clock combines the month with the year and the leap year. However, ergonomic research is not limited to the clarity of the dial. Equipped with a Quattro system with four barrels, the L.U.C Perpetual T watch has a power reserve of up to 9 days, without having to worry about forgetting to adjust the time or date. To avoid overcrowding the dial, the power reserve display is set on the case back and is clearly visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

The tourbillon frame of the L.U.C Perpetual T watch sits at 6 o’clock below the dial and is suspended from a steel bridge. The surface of the bridge is polished, which is comparable to a mirror effect. The non-stop tourbillon can continuously offset the gravity. Every L.U.C Perpetual T watch is certified by the COSC Swiss Official Observatory. Chopard regularly sends the brand’s tourbillon watches to Locle to participate in international competitions. Among them, the L.U.C Perpetual T tourbillon watch has achieved good results, which is evidenced by the Chronometer mark.

Refined aesthetic design
The L.U.C Perpetual T dial is crafted from solid gold, and the dial is decorated with a hand-finished Newseau pattern. The delicate ornamentation extends from the large date window to the three-dimensional Roman numerals. The slate gray perpetual calendar display plate is also decorated with a Newsuo pattern to distinguish functions, highlighting the contrast effect. In terms of parts, it also echoes the subtle aesthetics of this watch. The entire L.U.C 02.15-L movement is hand-finished, with mechanical beauty. The main splint is rounded and polished, the screws are polished, the bridge is chamfered and decorated with vertical Geneva ripples, the gems are set in a gold sleeve, and the parts are carefully polished and polished by exquisite handcraft. The high-quality craftsmanship and design contained in the L.U.C Perpetual T watch is a mark of honor that embodies the most distinguished Swiss watch-the imprint of Geneva. The 43 mm diameter case with delicate lugs makes the watch more elegant and elegant, while also providing excellent wearing comfort. The black alligator strap is hand-stitched with a crocodile leather lining, adding elegance to this craftsman’s watch.
