With the new Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Replica, Chopard pays homage to the first replica watch created for the L.U.C collection: the original L.U.C 1860 launched in 1996 as the first timepiece produced by the Chopard Manufacture.
Like its forebear, the L.U.C XPS 1860 is distinguished by its respect for replica watchmaking traditions and for chronometry, the two key elements that Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele was determined to incorporate within the L.U.C collection. The year 1860 in the name refers to the date when Louis-Ulysse Chopard created the Brand.
The two Chopard replica watches share the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) Calibre 96.01-L, the first in-house movement created by Chopard Manufacture 20 years ago. Automatically wound by a 22-carat gold micro-rotor, it is endowed with two barrels (Twin technology) to ensure a 65-hour power reserve, remarkable for an ultra-thin replica watch.
The new L.U.C XPS 1860 has a diameter of 40 mm with short, ergonomic lugs to ensure a perfect fit on most wrists. With a total thickness of just 7.2 mm, the new L.U.C model can be classified as an ultra-thin timepiece.
The elegant gold dial, with small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, features a central part with a hand-guilloché motif radiating out from the logo at 12 o’clock. A rare feature for an ultra-thin replica watch, the date is positioned at 6 ‘clock.
Like all L.U.C replica watches with a seconds indication, the L.U.C XPS 1860 is chronometer-certified by the COSC. The Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark certifies the quality of its construction and finishing.
The latest, masculine and typical Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Twin replica watch, in steel, therefore, is both an end in itself, and a means by which the company hopes to get out the message that there’s more out there at the high end than the usual suspects.
Well, if you want a design that’s as classic in features and execution as the perpetual calendar itself, the slightly idiosyncratic design of the Perpetual Twin will probably not ultimately appeal to you enough to make you seriously consider owning one.
The fancy Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Twin replica watch’s dial and case have a very definite Art Deco feel – especially the hands, which, with their setbacks just past where the lume begins, look like stylized skyscrapers. The oversized, mirror-polished Roman numerals, large date display, choice of fonts, and black-and-white color scheme all further underscore the Deco influence on the design of the Perpetual Twin.
The design’s distinctive, without falling afoul of the trap of trying to seem novel for the sake of novelty. It’s always difficult to come up with original and also genuinely tasteful designs in watchmaking, and most watches resort, more or less, to a fairly small repertoire of well-worn visual tropes; this awesome and impressive Chopard mens replica watch has a great, individual design identity that also happens to work very well.
On the wrist, the nica Chopard L.U.C. Perpetual Twin replica watch wears a bit large but I didn’t find the size excessive, probably thanks to the fact that the width/thickness aspect ratio makes the watch wear a bit on the thin side.
It all began in 1860 in the small village of Sonvilier, Switzerland. Here Louis-Ulysse Chopard, a talented young craftsman, established his workshop. By virtue of their precision and reliability, his watches quickly gained a solid reputation among enthusiasts and found buyers as far afield as Eastern Europe, Russia and Scandinavia.In 1921, the founder’s son, Paul Louis Chopard, opened a branch in La Chaux-de-Fonds and then relocated the company headquarters there. In 1937, he moved the firm to Geneva, the capital of Haute Horlogerie, or Fine Watchmaking, thereby bringing it closer to its cosmopolitan clientele. In 1943, Paul Andre Chopard, grandson of Louis-Ulysse, took the helm.
The L.U.C best swiss replica watch Collection is a tribute to watchmaker Louis-Ulysse Chopard. The watchmaker already added the L.U.C Perpetual Chrono to the collection earlier this year, and the Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Replica is the newest addition.
The watch pays tribute to the first L.U.C timepiece, the L.U.C 1860, which debuted 20 years ago. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Chopard Manufacture, which produces the line completely in-house. There are two watches in the Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 replica watch collection. The dial has a hand-guilloche motif within the center and a sub-seconds dial at 6 o’clock. The Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 replica watch is a 250-piece limited edition.
Happy Sport by Chopard Replica Watches has become a very large collection and it is one of the brand’s most popular watches. Chopard’s determination to reinforce its horological positioning is shown by recent developments in the Happy Sport range, which from its launch in 1993 acquired its first 36 mm models with mechanical movements in 2013. This year, at Baselworld Happy Sport was presented in a smaller 30 mm format, again with automatic movements, in a number of different variants to suit the owner’s personal style and tastes. There are five mobile diamonds between the two sapphire glass layers above the dial.
The new replica Happy Sport 30mm Automatic can be obtained having a polished steel or gemstone-set situation. Five floating diamonds whirl about its silver-well toned dial having a spiral guilloche center pattern. The crown, also made from steel, is placed having a blue azure, as the steel bracelet or alligator leather strap enhances the singularly elegant benefit of this model.
The movement is not made by Chopard Replica: its characteristics (20 mm diameter, 3.6 mm thickness, 28,800 vph, 40 hours power reserve) suggest that it is the ETA 2000-1. If this sounds like correct, it’s interesting the Chopard designers made the decision to not make use of the date that is incorporated included in this movement. Steel and diamonds: a daring and modern alliance that brings about a constantly reinvented icon – the Happy Sport. It now returns towards the scene having a smaller sized, elegant dial having a self-winding movement, an accomplishment on a pleasing and technical level.
