When it comes to luxury watches, Chopard has some of the finest timepieces in their inventory and a new addition to that collection is the LUC Quattro. The LUC is a line of premium luxury watches by Chopard. This watch is not as dressy as some of the other watches in the collection but it certainly screams of the Chopard luxury promise. The watch has a large 43mm case which is only 8.84mm thin and has white gold and the dial is a beautiful shade of blue. The Quattro in the name refers to the Quattro technology in its movement. The dial also features a power indicator sub-dial and an overlapped sub-dial of calendar and second hand. The watch has a power reserve of 9 days and a water resistance rating of 50 meters. It is surprising how good this large watch looks in formal dressing.

LUC XP Esprit de Fleurier Peony
Chopard is famous for creating watches that break the norm in a way that no one expects. They tend to come up with designs that are unlike anything that you see in typical watches but they manage to do that in the most exquisite manner. This particular watch is a fine example of that and is one of the top luxury watches for women currently in existence. The Peony flower is a highlight of the design and Chopard resurrected the art of paper cutting for this watch. The watch resides in a beautifully engraved 35mm case with an incredibly small depth at just 7.7mm which is astonishing. The watch runs on LUC 96.23-L Calibre movement which is an iteration for this specific watch and also features a petite 22k gold motor that provides a power reserve of 65 hours. It is an incredibly beautiful and accomplished watch in every regard.
