As a 2003 debut, this model ranked among the earliest and most impressive of the Louis-Ulysse Chopard flagship models that redefined the standing and image of Chopard within the luxury watch hierarchy. The dial of this LUC Regulateur is true to its name; hours, (central) minutes, and seconds are displayed on separate dials in the fashion of the "mother clocks" or "regulators" used for reference in traditional watchmaking workshops. The exotic combination of deep "rayon" guilloche (originating at the power reserve gauge), regulator dials, and multiple complication displays places this Chopard among the most avant garde of Geneva Seal recipients. Indeed, the Chopard LUC caliber 1.98.37089 is blessed with the hallowed Geneva Seal - and more. As a true COSC-certified Swiss Chronometer movement, the 1.98.3789 is both precise and beautiful. Its four mainspring barrels consist of two stacked assemblies (2X2) that provide an advertised eight days of autonomy between windings... and an actual power reserve of 9 days before the movement stops. Hacking seconds provides the ability to synch this comely chronometer to a reference clock, and the date window provides a further measure of convenience. With a classical "Calatrava" -style gold case, the Chopard LUC Regulateur wears with traditional elegance and compact ease. While highly complicated, the total thickness of barely 11mm means that the Chopard Regulateur is compatible with formal attire and tight dress cuffs. Naturally, a high-quality alligator leather strap and deployant clasp are added to the ergonomic equation.
