The best quality Chopard L.U.C. Lunar One watch replica was first presented in 2005 and the new version, a limited edition of 100, is the first in platinum. The L.U.C Lunar One is Chopard’s flagship complication, featuring a perpetual calendar watch with large date and moon-phase display (both of which are trending at the moment).
Fairmined gold is a project that Chopard continues to invest heavily in, rightly believing that luxury needs to be ethically neutral at least. Meeting the criterion and putting the systems in place to guarantee the production is “clean” is demanding and expensive, which is why only a minority of Chopard’s output qualifies at the moment.
The Lunar One is a complicated Chopard L.U.C. Lunar One copy watch and Chopard’s design does nothing to hide that, but the information is nicely organised with the calendar functions confined to the date windows and the two sub-dials at 9 and 3 – the lower sub-dial being given over to a sky-chart / moon phase (the moon phase follows the position of the moon in the sky), the design being brought together by a royal blue dial with a sunray finish focussed on the “o” of the L.U. Chopard legend.
The standard XPS Twist is no longer in the collection, but the irregular orientation of crown and small-seconds (effectively just rotating the movement 30 degrees within the case) lives on in the L.U.C 8HF Power Control. Super-slim at 7.20mm in height, the XPS Twist has an eccentric layout with its crown at 4 and subsidiary seconds at 7 and, for the Fairmined rose gold edition, brings back the grainy curved sunburst texture that made its debut on the XPS Fairmined limited edition two years ago.
Inside is Chopard’s chronometer grade Calibre 96.09-L and the whole watch is tested to the Qualité Fleurier standard, a process that involves certification from COSC, the Swiss chronometer commission, Chronfiable, which tests for endurance, and the QF Foundation, which runs a series of specially designed tests. It’s the first time a fairmined piece has been submitted for QF certification.
Nevertheless, the brand is steadily increasing its capacity to produce these mens Chopard replica watches and the latest to be produced under the scheme is the L.U.C. XPS Twist.
