Following this achievement, Chopard intends to extend this popular aesthetic concept to one of the brand’s flagship models: the L.U.CQuattro watch. Today, the watch presents a new dial with a very contemporary design and simple style. The entire dial is polished with a vertical silver satin-finished silver dial and cleverly contrasted with blue hands.

This small dial is equipped with a small second hand and a date display function indicated by hands. The scale design is more detailed and simplified. At 12 o’clock, the power reserve display is subdivided into 9 scales, which echoes up and down symmetrically with the sub-dial. The power reserve display is also the unique design of the L.U.CQuattro watch, with a 180-degree fan-shaped design. The minute scale circle is equipped with large Arabic numerals ‘3’ and ‘9’ at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, combined with the blue three-dimensional applied hour markers. The shape of the hour markers follows the design of the most distinctive rocket-like pointer of the L.U.C series. The hands are covered with a SuperLumiNova luminous coating.
The case of the L.U.CQuattro watch has a total diameter of 43 mm and is crafted in exquisite 18K rose gold. The middle layer of the case is delicately modified with satin texture.
