The Chopard L.U.C Lunar Big Date features an 18-carat rose gold case that emits luxury and will attract many watch connoisseurs with its high accuracy of the actual lunar cycle. The Lunar Big Date is an extra ordinary limited edition mode of just 500 timepieces.

The night sky is visible on the dial and the distinct watch wearer can stay in touch with the Moon phase, also this showcasing L.U.C Lunar Big Date as a complex mechanical timepiece by displaying relation between time and the stars. The moon phase is associated here with the hour and minute hands and a large date display is positioned at 12 o’clock and a small seconds indication between 4 and 5 o’clock. The trademarked self-winding L.U.C Calibre 96 LD mechanism is placed in a 42mm 18-carat rose gold case with a silvered guilloché dial elegantly studded with Arabic numerals.

The watch wearer can view the Moon seen from Earth rotate as the hours pass. Its visible side may be completely lit up by the Sun (full Moon),
or entirely descending into the dark (new Moon) or only partially illuminated (various moon phases).

Accuracy in a watch is a daunty and very mechanically complicated task, but the luxury watch manufacturer Chopard has endured and figured it out.
The proof of its success is showcased in L.U.C Lunar Big Date with an almost laser like precision of the 135 tooth gear that rotates the moon-bearing disc.

The moon phases on the Chopard L.U.C Lunar Big Date can be viewed for both Northern and Southern hemispheres through an aperture that makes easy reading. Also the Northern part of the disc features the Big Dipper constellation, while the Southern part displays the Southern Cross.

The Chopard L.U.C Lunar Big Date’s mechanical two stacked co-axial winding mechanism barrels ensures a 65-hour supply of energy to the watches movement and the luxury watch finishes off its elegant looks with a brown or black hand-sewn alligator leather strap with a folding clasp. With only 500 of these exquisite and exclusive timepieces ever made it will truly be a wonderful collective piece for the discerning luxury watch admirer.
