L.U.C XP IL SARTO KITON: THE BEST OF SWISS HAUTE HORLOGERIE AND ITALIAN SPREZZATURA
Known for its elegance imbued with a spirit of purity and simplicity, the ultra-thin L.U.C XP timepiece is stylishly paired with a ‘suit’ made to measure by the artisans of the Kiton Ateliers. The Swiss watchmaker and the Neapolitan couturier both represent family Maisons committed to the same vision of craftsmanship and tradition, these two great names in masculine elegance have combined their know-how in creating the L.U.C XP Il Sarto Kiton watch.
With the L.U.C XP Il Sarto Kiton timepiece, Chopard introduced its first partnership with the Kiton Ateliers, masters of Italian tailoring. This strictly limited edition of 100 ultra-thin watches in beadblasted DLC-coated steel is soberly attired with a houndstooth-patterned dial and a slate-coloured cashmere strap lined with red alligator leather.
A limited edition of 100 ultra-thin pieces in microblasted DLC steel soberly clad in a houndstooth pattern dial with a slate-coloured cashmere strap lined with red alligator leather.
Mechanical excellence is guaranteed by the L.U.C 96.53-L automatic movement, equipped with a tungsten micro rotor and Chopard Twin technology ensuring more than two days of autonomy.
First and foremost, the L.U.C XP Il Sarto Kiton is perfectly proportioned thanks to a 40 mm diameter case that is a mere 7.2 mm thick. This ultra-flat look enables genuine wearer comfort and imposes an aura of simplicity, two imperatives that sum up the philosophy of the L.U.C collection and contribute to its elegance. Thereby echoing Ciro Paone’s motto: “Elegance must be associated with simplicity”.
Entirely developed, produced and assembled in Chopard’s Fine Watchmaking workshops, the L.U.C 96.53-L self-winding mechanical movement oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and has a 58-hour power reserve thanks to Twin technology: a system invented by Chopard that combines two coaxial barrels, a particularly remarkable feat given the movement’s extreme thinness at just 3.3 mm thick.
