CHOPARD L.U.C XP URUSHI YEAR OF THE DOG

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

The el­e­gance, the re­fine­ment and the tech­ni­cal na­ture of the ul­tra-thin L.U.C XP Urushi watch have made it a cult model. Each year, Chopard draws in­spi­ra­tion from the reper­toire of Chi­nese astrol­ogy to of­fer a fresh in­ter­pre­ta­tion of its Urushi dial, an an­ces­tral Ja­panese tech­nique. 2018 marks the cel­e­bra­tion of the Year of the Dog. Its iconog­ra­phy, its uni­ver­sal sym­bol­ism and its mytho­log­i­cal strength are show­cased in an ex­cep­tional L.U.C watch is­sued in an 88-piece lim­ited se­ries: The L.U.C XP Urushi –Year of the dog. This mas­ter­piece of fine crafts­man­ship be­gan with an en­counter be­tween two per­spec­tives, that of the Urushi mas­ter and of the mas­ter-watch­maker at Chopard Man­u­fac­ture in Fleurier. The deft hands dec­o­rat­ing the dial of the L.U.C XP Urushi, just like those ca­pa­ble of de­vel­op­ing and pro­duc­ing the L.U.C 96.17-L cal­i­bre, per­pet­u­ate time-hon­oured skills bear­ing au­then­tic tes­ti­mony to their re­spec­tive cul­tures. To­gether, they cel­e­brate the Year of the Dog, the 11th sign of the Chi­nese zo­diac, for a year ded­i­cated to gen­eros­ity and loy­alty.
