In 2010, Chopard introduced the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon to celebrate the 150th anniversary as well as the decades of passion it has shared with the world of motorsports, This exceptional model is made in 150 pieces only, which combines the finest elements of the two forms of mechanical expression. From its strong lines to the most subtle details, everything about this powerful timepiece honors the automobile spirit also admirably accentuated by a fine watch movement machined like an engine block.

This L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon equipped the in-house mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement, L.U.C Calibre 1TRM, which beats at a cadence of 28,800 vibrations per hour and boasts a 60-hour power reserve. Chronometer-certified by the COSC.In much the same way as a car engine, this movement is mounted on silent-blocks – that absorb shocks – and held by three lever arms inserted into the case middle.

In keeping with automobile traditions, the reamed engine block bears the Chopard signature; while a circular segment directly fixed to the upper face of the movement carries the power-reserve display at 12 o'clock positioned opposite the tourbillon bridge at 6 o'clock featuring a design that is a first for Chopard. Representing a magnificent mechanical feat of engineering, the L.U.C Engine One Tourbillon is distinguished not only by its high-end motorization but also by the bodywork that endows it with an inimitably sophisticated style.
