Chopard is well-known for its Mille Miglia watches. A brilliant coup for their PR team, but their more classic L.U.C. collection is also pretty impressive. Like this Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer.

Chopards invests quite some money and time in their manufacture and the Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer is a perfect example. It houses the brands ultra-thin in-house micro-rotor movement (L.U.C. 96.01-L), which you can admire when you open the Officer-type case back. A rarity nowadays, but an impressive addition which is totally in line with Chopard’s L.U.C. collection.

The Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer is limited to 100 pieces

The 18-carat white gold Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer has mastered the art of being understated. The Officer-type back is its most ‘out-there’ feature. A feature that originally served to protect pocket watch glasses, as well as a space for engravings. With the transition to wrist watches, this type of case lost its use, yet the artistry remains.

Watch aficionado’s will look past the subtle classic looks and pick up the extensive attention to detail. Like the guilloché honeycomb dial on both Officer-type case and dial. And let’s not forget a COSC certification as well as Poinçon de Genève certification. The Chopard L.U.C XPS 1860 Officer is limited to 100 pieces.
