Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Dragon
By SENATUS Magazine | 3 January 2024

2024 marks a milestone for the L.U.C XP Urushi series. Back in 2013, Chopard launched the very first model of this kind with the Snake edition. With the addition dedicated to the Dragon, Chopard completes a full circle in the Chinese calendar.

For this year's edition, a wonderful wooden case featuring the 12 L.U.C XP Urushi crafted since then will be unveiled in 2024, offering the collectors a chance to admire these masterpieces of craftmanship thus united as a magnificent whole.

The L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Dragon is an artisanal expression of luck and prosperity which marks the Chinese zodiac cycle. This model boasts a 39.5 mm ethical 18-carat rose gold case, while the in-house L.U.C 96.17-L calibre with micro-rotor ensures that a slender profile of just 6.80 mm can be maintained. It mingles technical savoir-faire and artistic flair delivered by Chopard Manufacture. Its dial is a piece of art, skilfully decorated with Urushi lacquer, gold powder and mother-of-pearl inlays.

For the 12th year running in the Chopard Urushi story, the dial has been hand-crafted in Japan by a world-renowned artisan specialising in the Maki-e technique. The Japanese master lacquerer called upon by the Maison has thus created a moody, elegant black dial on which the dragon comes to life. Soaring high above the clouds, it radiates a striking blend of power and grace, with bold statement colours of red and yellow.
