The Chopard L.U.C 1963 Anniversary Chronometer watch was launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Scheufele family owning the prestigious watch and jewellery company. With the passage of time comes experience. In 1963, the Scheufele family acquired Chopard and have since guided the company to increasing commercial success, producing eye-catching jewellery and some of the finest Chopard L.U.C replica watch in existence.The watches which bear the three initials of Chopard’s founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard, have become a byword for haute horlogerie, fusing technical ingenuity and fine Swiss craftsmanship.
In 2013, Chopard released the L.U.C 1963 Platinum Limited Edition replica watch, a fine looking timepiece created to celebrate the first 50 years of Chopard ownership in the hands of the Scheufele family. The styling is imbued with a traditional air that I find most becoming, hence there was no hesitation on my part when presented with the opportunity to try on this rare watch and appraise its classical form.
‘Purity’ is a word which comes to the fore when appraising the aesthetics of the replica chopard l u c 1963 rose-gold mens watch . There is an elegant refinement to the dial of this watch which effortlessly communicates hours, minutes and seconds with clear diction. Ease of understanding is a given with each element of the dial distilled to the nth degree.
The Chopard L.U.C 1963 Platinum Limited Edition replica watch is one of the larger models in the L.U.C collection, measuring 44mm in diameter with a case height of 11.5mm. However, its scale, when considered in a wider context, could not be described as ‘oversized’ and assumes a tasteful, seemly presence upon the wrist.The selection of platinum for the case material seems unusual for a 50th anniversary watch, with gold being a more obvious choice. However, whilst Chopard do offer a gold version of this Chopard L.U.C 1963 Platinum Limited Edition replica watch, I adore the softly spoken charms of the platinum case. The upper surface of the lugs and bezel are highly polished but the caseband is satin-brushed, reinforcing the self-effacing character of the watch.
The highly polished white gold crown sparkles in contrast to the aforementioned caseband and bears three letters, familiar to those in the know, L.U.C. The lug design includes sharply tapering sections which coax the strap to encircle the wrist.
