Made of gold, mother-of-pearl and coloured lacquer, it conveys both agricultural symbolism and the more subtle imagery of the Emperor.The case is entirely sculpted from a block of 18-carat rose gold sourced from an ethical supply chain pioneered by Chopard. Featuring an elegant and refined ornamentation, the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox is also an ultra-thin timepeace measuring a mere 6.80 mm thick. This slimness is enabled by the use of the 3.30 mm thick L.U.C 96.17-L in house calibre.
Despite this extremely diminutive size, the piece allows automatic winding via a micro-rotor. This small ethical 22-carat gold off-centre oscillating weight incorporated into the calibre boasts high inertia enabling it to wind the two barrels efficiently. The latter are stacked in accordance with the Chopard Twin Technology and are capable of storing the energy necessary for the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Ox to offer a total 65-hour power reserve.
Allow yourself some luxury this Chinese New Year. A real treasure to own.
