Cheap Replica Chopard L.U.C Full Strike Minute Repeater Replica Hollow Out Watches UK

While it pains me to say this, it is nevertheless true: increasingly tough market situations have forced watch brands to ease back on releasing new super complicated watches. We have become used to seeing a handful of these so-called “halo watch” novelties every single year, but that no longer is the case as R&D budgets are cut and the financial sustainability is questionable for such eye-wateringly expensive projects. Worry not, though, as the all-new Chopard L.U.C Full Strike leather strap watches UK are here and, frankly, it has everything going for it to become any real watch lover’s wet dream. Let’s see how it looks, works, and sounds, hands-on.

First, some context – and I’ll try and keep this as brief as possible. In 2016, Chopard is proudly celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Chopard Manufacture, a highly capable manufacture in Fleurier, Switzerland, that has been producing both some great looking in-house (not-so-)base movements like in the Mille Miglia 2016 XL , as well as even more refined, top grade Chopard L.U.C watches and their wholly in-house calibers.

The Chopard L.U.C Full Strike is the first minute repeater ever made by Chopard, and they say it took them six years to develop it – a commendable effort, because, like so many others, they too totally could have sourced a base minute repeater from one of the numerous suppliers… but they didn’t.
I’ll go out on a limb and say this: over the last few years, Chopard’s high-end, in-house L.U.C division has grown to be one of the most impressive suppliers of beautifully finished, uniquely and thoughtfully engineered and, last but not least, useful-feature-laden timepieces. Yet, Chopard to this day remains sort of an underdog, and while there is no doubt to Chopard L.U.C slowly but surely earning the reputation it deserves, a serious halo-piece like, you know, a kick-ass minute repeater might expedite the process.

Part of Chopard L.U.C’s replica watches UK appeal, in my mind, comes not from them trying to first copy what others have done and being comparably good at the same game. No, instead they more often than not dare to think a bit out of the box, apparently with an approach of “if we are making something in-house and from scratch, we might as well make something new.” Look at the Quattro for one of the thinnest, most elegant and technically impressive long power reserve movements, the new Time Traveler for some (finally!) 21st-century-looking luxury world time watches, or the XPS 1860 for a high-end dress watch with an in-house micro-rotor movement for under $10k. This trend of engineered sensibility is now broken by one insane minute repeater.

This is the first time Chopard fake watches uk has combined these two heavyweight functions – it has a beautiful chronograph in the L.U.C 1963 Chronograph, which we looked at here, and it has perpetual calendars in the form of the L.U.C Lunar One, L.U.C 150 All-In-One and L.U.C Perpetual T (those last two also include a tourbillon), but until now there has been no perpetual cal chrono.

Replica-Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Calendar-ChronographThe base mechanism is built around a flyback chronograph calibre – quite possibly the same as powers the 1963 Chronograph – with an adjusted perpetual calendar module on top. Adjusted why? To ensure the various subdials can be adequately displayed; Chopard’s existing L.U.C chronograph and perpetual calendar watches have very similar 3-6-9 dial layouts, so for this to work, something had to move.

What that gives us is – deep breath – oversized date at 12 o’clock; 30-minute chronograph counter, months display and off-set leap year indicator at 3 o’clock/2 o’clock; moonphase and small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock; chronograph hours, day of the week and day-night indicator at 9 o’clock/10 o’clock and hours, minutes and chronograph seconds in the centre. There’s a railroad track around the outside, punctuated by some arrowhead five-minute markers, roman numerals for the hours, and a really strong radial guilloché emanating from the grande date, all coated with grey ruthenium. It’s a hell of a show.

The most obvious idiosyncrasy of the best copy watches sale is the “Mickey Mouse ears” off-set dials at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock – particularly the way the chronograph hours and minutes continue to run around the edges of the leap year and day-night indicators. It’s kind of fun. The dial also gets a slightly unexpected injection of sportiness with all that red ink – which is also kind of fun. If you look at the other perpetual calendar chronographs out there – most notably of course Patek’s 5270, but also those offered by Cartier, Vacheron Constantin and (yes) Breitling – they eschew this kind of sporty energy in favour of a more traditional ultra-classicism.

Replica-Chopard-LUC-Perpetual-Calendar-Chronograph-3The Replica Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Calendar Chronograph watches comes only in a limited edition of 20 pieces – so few because it’s one of Chopard’s references that uses fairmined gold. It measures 45mm across and stands 15.6mm tall off the wrist. The L.U.C 03.10-L movement, made from nickel silver, meets COSC standards of accuracy, and Poinçon de Genève standards of quality and finishing, and boasts a 60-hour power reserve.
