Graphic restraint

A finely vertical satin-brushed silver-toned dial. Slender applied hour-markers. Broad blued numerals swept over by equally blue Dauphine fusée-type hands. The new face of the L.U.C XP is the epitome of graphic restraint. The 40 mm case is made of stainless steel, a sturdy yet easy-wear material. It is fitted with a blue cashmere woven strap lined with brown alligator leather, a first for the L.U.C collection. To provide pleasurably varied options, the L.U.C XP may also be teamed with a blue alligator leather strap.

A new design matched by a new movement

The L.U.C XP models house a movement comprising two stacked barrels (patented Twin® technology) guaranteeing a 58-hour power reserve. Accommodating such a self-winding movement within an ultra-thin 7.20 mm case is a technical feat made possible by in ingenious micro-rotor construction ensuring greater visibility of the movement. The latter is made of tungsten, a sturdy high-density material enabling enhanced movement winding. Finally, the choice of black engravings, visible through the exhibition case-back, sets the perfect finishing touch to a thoroughly modern and reliable watch.

Perfectly suited to every occasion, the L.U.C XP flouts Haute Horlogerie conventions and flaunts its own character as a must-have accessory for any masculine wardrobe.
