Swiss jewellery house Chopard is dedicating a new exclusive series of its L.U.C XP timepiece to the Chinese Year of the Monkey.

Featuring a striking lacquered dial in the style of traditional Japanese artwork known as Urushi, the limited series was hand-crafted in Japan by a master lacquer artist. It depicts a monkey gathering peaches – a popular scene believed to bring good luck in Chinese iconography.

Behind it, golden valleys compose a warm scene in soft tones that make a perfect match with the rose gold of the case.

Fitted with a black alligator leather strap, the L.U.C XP Urushi “Year of the monkey” also comes in a special presentation box also decorated using Urushi techniques. 

Inside, the timepiece beats with an L.U.C Calibre 96.17-L, an ultra-thin self-winding movement measuring just 3.30 mm thick and equipped with a 22-carat gold micro-rotor.

The calibre is equipped with Twin technology based on two barrels, enabling a highly impressive 65-hour power reserve.

Founded by Louis-Ulysse Chopard in 1860, Chopard has grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury brands.
