Basel Preview Chopard L.U.C. Engine One Tourbillon

In a deliberate departure from the traditional principles of horological design, the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon houses an exceptional movement designed and made from A to Z at the Chopard Manufacture, machined like an engine block and mounted on silent blocks. To celebrate the brand’s 150th anniversary, this mechanical titanium thoroughbred has been produced in a limited series of 150.
