We're not sure if you are given to wondering about young overachievers. We certainly are. Sometimes, we’d look at that 25-year old multi-hyphenate entrepreneur or millionaire athlete in amazement and think to ourselves: “What did we ever get up to at that age?”

By the same token, we imagine that many watch companies, both new and old, must be casting glances at Chopard L.U.C and in awe of what the company has achieved in just 25 years – mere embryonic years in the context of a centuries-old business.

In the short time since its inception, Chopard L.U.C has premiered 11 in-house movements, several of which feature groundbreaking innovations, and rolled out numerous ultra-sophisticated models, among which include the L.U.C Full Strike, the world’s first-minute repeater using sapphire crystal gongs that won the top prize at the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

At the same time, the entity also earned its stripes as a full-fledged Manufacture, having expanded to include a research and development department (Chopard Technologies) and a separate manufacturing factory to produce industrial movements (Fleurier Ebauches). In fact, if one didn’t know any better, he would’ve assumed Chopard L.U.C to be one of the grand traditional Swiss watchmaking houses with hundreds of years of history.
