Chopard New Collections: Mille Miglia, L.U.C. Perpetual Twin and Happy Sport
Chopard launches new models for 2020 and it marks a step un in design and technicality.
The Chopard story comes with spectacular watches and jewelry and it has the great advantage to include iconic designs that value the most in the luxury industry. The novelties announced for spring, that usually would have been presented at Baselworld – now postponed and in uncertain conditions, reassure the position of Chopard among top brands. Moreover, the quality level of watches continues to reach higher standards.
Mille Miglia GTS Azzurro
The new Mille Miglia collection for 2020 follows the well-established partnership even if the historical race has been postponed for late October. For this year, the special effect is given by the Azzurro dials matched to the blue perforated leather straps with a rubber lining inspired by vintage Dunlop racing tyres. The collection offers the Mille Miglia GTS Azzurro Chrono in a 44 mm diameter steel case limited to 750 pieces and the Mille Miglia GTS Azzurro Power Control in a 43 mm diameter steel and pink gold case limited to 500 pieces. Inside the Chrono there is an automatic movement with a power reserve of 48 hours while for the Power Control Chopard has prepared an in-house automatic calibre – COSC certified – with a power reserve of 60 hours.
L.U.C. Perpetual Twin
The special model was first launched in 2016 to mark 20 years since the founding of Chopard Manufacture. The L.U.C Perpetual Twin is a practical everyday watch that holds inside a real haute horlogerie performance as far as calibre and finishing are concerned. As a unique characteristic, it remains the only chronometer-certified perpetual calendar in stainless steel currently on the market.
For 2020, Chopard presents the model in a new combination between the 43 mm diameter steel case and a blue dial. In the same time, the L.U.C Perpetual Twin is offered for the first time in 18-carat rose gold, with a grey dial.
Inside the case, there is a true work of art in the form of the mechanical automatic calibre L.U.C. 96.22-L which is very thin but in the same time it offers a power reserve of 65 hours thanks to its dual barrels.
Happy Sport Joaillerie
The Happy Sport collection, recognized for its moving diamonds, is now welcoming two jewelry versions, available in white or rose gold 36 mm diameter cases. Besides the diamonds settings, the new special editions hold inside a Chopard manufactured automatic movement with an impressive power reserve of 65 hours. The ultra-thin movement comprises 167 components and it is itself a piece of horological art.
