When Karl Scheufele, a German watchmaker and nice jeweller, made a decision to purchase the family-owned Chopard firm in the 1960s, little did he know it is going to turn into one of the very luxury watch and nice jewellery manufacturers in the world.
By far the most elegant and minimalist among these Chopard watches, the L.U.C XPS in 18K rose gold case and brown leather strap is perfect for the racing gentleman. And if you’re a man of accuracy, then the chronometer function of this watch will definitely appeal to you.
Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, its mechanical self-winding Calibre 96.12-L is chronometer-certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC), the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. What is more, at only 3.3mm-thick, the movement boasts a 65-hour electricity book. And as they say, there’s nothing sexier in a man than a 40mm watch with a brownish alligator strap that is hand-sewn.
Get it if you want a slim dress watch that packs a punch that is subtle.
