Extremely perfect ratio
Chopard succeeded in reducing the size of its watch movement after creating the first standard pointer watch in 2006. The case material is also advanced from 18K rose gold classic steel. The installation design of its standard hands is unparalleled. Unlike most of the standard dial design of today’s standard hands, the hour hand of standard hands is not located at the center of the dial, but at 3 o’clock. Therefore, LUC Regulator can easily show time at any time through the wearer’s sleeve. Compared with the avant-garde modern dial style of the 2006 version, the 2015 new LUC Regulator dial display design is more refined and elegant. Its gold-plated minute hand stays in the center of the dial, making the dial reading more clear.
The uniqueness of Chopard’s LUC Regulator is reflected in the symmetrical and balanced dial composition. Different functions are displayed on the central axis of the dial.

The hour hand, minute hand, and second hand are on the dial, so that each watchmaker can clearly see the movement of various parts of the dial. The display principle of this dial is the standard pointer we are familiar with.
