High Frequency Chopard L.U.C. 8HF watch

The only high frequency watch to receive a COSC certification

Chopard watches have always been renowned for their accuracy and precision, but this time they have outdone themselves!

Chopard L.U.C. 8HF Watch

An amazingly accurate high frequency watch!

Introducing the newest luxury watch in their L.U.C. watches collection, the L.U.C. 8HF. This highly accurate timepiece boasts an incredible 8Hz or 57,600 vibrations per hour escapement. For those of you technical junkies, this new benchmarks nearly doubles the accuracy on an already notorious watch. Luxiatic explains what makes this accurate watch so appealing:

The timepiece doesn’t boast the highest speed on market today, but is the only high frequency mechanical watch that was ever presented the COSC certification, the official Swiss standard keeper of chronometric performance. This is quite a hit for the fabled brand, given the fact that the L.U.C. 8HF bears a retro-styled case.

In terms of mechanics, the Chopard L.U.C. 8HF – Calibre L.U.C. 01.06-L (in-house researched and developed in Chopard workshops) boasts a 42 mm titanium shell that covers the COSC-certified movement. Its most important mechanical parts haven’t been exposed, but the exhibition caseback reveals a general view of the movement.

On the surface, it’s difficult to really appreciate a high frequency watch until you get a glimpse of the smooth-like-butter movement of the small seconds subdial between the 6- and 8 o’clock position. When you see how incredibly fluid this dial moves, then you can really start to appreciate how, in the future, this luxury watch might be held up as a legendary stepping stone to even greater leaps on horological technology.

Now here’s the sticky part: since the Chopard L.U.C. 8HF is only considered an experimental desing, Chopard will only be releasing this watch in a limited edition of 100 units.

If you are the kind of watch collector that enjoys having those watches that are considered “monumental” in the advancement of timepiece design, then you know that you already will have to own this watch. If, on the other hand, you are looking for your next gorgeous watch, then you might have a ton of competition on this one…
