Here’s a breakdown of why we feel that the L.U.C 1860 Flying T, Special Revolution, limited to just five pieces, is such an extraordinary watch.
First, the watch is a celebration of L.U.C’s incredible 25-year-long commitment to technical innovation and pure authentic watchmaking.
Second, it is an aesthetic masterpiece that takes one of the most iconic modern watch designs and adds to it a stunning 3.5Hz flying tourbillon.
Third, at 36.5 mm in diameter and 8.2 mm in height, L.U.C 1860 Flying T, Special Revolution is the ultimate expression of an elegant complication.
It is to us the perfect size for a classic dress watch, which also features a complication.
With a world in the throes of vintage watch fever, here is a modern timepiece that wears like a vintage one, but which has none of the disadvantages.
Just to be cheeky, the thought did cross our mind that if Philippe Dufour ever made a tourbillon version of the Simplicity, it would probably end up looking a lot like this.
Fourth, it is the only automatic flying tourbillon that has received both the Geneva Seal as well as COSC certification.
Last but not least, thanks to Chopard L.U.C’s understanding, we have been permitted to price this timepiece at what we consider a tremendous value proposition at USD 121'000.Read More
