Chopard first launched its Imperiale collection in 1994 and has now introduced its first-ever flying tourbillon movement into the offering. The L.U.C Calibre 96.24-C is a technical prowess for such a small diameter.
Entirely designed and crafted by Chopard, this exclusive mechanism is one of the only ones on the market bearing both Chronometer-certification and the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.
The artisans of the Maison have crafted a magnificent robe to attire the extreme precision of the Imperiale Flying Tourbillon. Framed by an ethical 18-carat white gold case set with diamonds, the aventurine dial is ‘embroidered’ with a mother-of-pearl marquetry lotus blossom. Nestling within the latter is a flying tourbillon that is both mesmerising and profoundly touching.
On the back of the model, a sapphire crystal reveals the Côtes de Genève motif as well as the diamond-paved platinum micro-rotor.
