Do you hear what I hear?
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the L.U.C. collection, the L.U.C Full Strike model adds a tourbillon with a sapphire bridge to the monobloc sapphire minute repeater. This 42.5 mm timepiece in ethical 18-carat rose gold is equipped with the new chronometer-certified L.U.C 08.02-L movement. The extremely accomplished level of finishing, both on the movement and the case, has earned it the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark. Its dial, in ruthenium grey-coloured hand-guilloché rose gold, opens to reveal the two complications that make this 20-piece limited edition so sophisticated. Endorsed by virtuoso brothers Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, its acoustic richness achieves an exceptional level of quality, while perfect homogeneity combines a stunning conceptual challenge with a supremely accomplished execution.
Renaud Capuçon is a virtuoso of his time as well as a specialist in acoustics and sound — just like his brother, cellist Gautier Capuçon. Both play instruments that are several hundred years old and which embody perfection and uniqueness that have stood the test of time.

The “Peacock” jewellery watch is an elegant take on the beauty of the magnificent bird with its tail unfurled around the mother-of-pearl dial as if to protect time with a bouquet of bejewelled feathers. The watch is made with ethical 18-carat white gold and titanium set with sapphires (4.7 carats), Paraiba tourmalines (1.67 carats), white, cognac, black and brown diamonds (totalling 1.55 carats), tsavorites (1.04 carats) and luzalites (0.71 carat).

For the eternal optimist, the Happy Sport collection welcomes three new creations in a delightful palette of blue. The model in steel has a 30 mm diameter with a dial in sky blue that makes the perfect backdrop to the whirl of three dancing diamonds. The two other timepieces, with their larger 36 mm diameter, combine stainless steel with details in ethical 18-carat rose gold, while their dials and leather straps are attired in different shades of blue.
Time to soar
The Alpine Eagle Frozen timepiece was inspired by the grace of the eagle and the majesty of the Alps. Made with ethical 18-carat white gold, the 41 mm-diameter case, the bezel and the integrated bracelet are wrapped in diamonds. This jewellery version of the watch for "contemporary eagles" is equipped with the mechanical self-winding Chopard 01.03-C movement (60-hour power reserve). The abundance of diamonds suggests the tiny flakes of frost covering glaciers.
