Chopard L.U.C Lunar One

Orbitting around the earth, the moon has a powerful allure and is full of beauty, legend, myth and romance. On the L.U.C Lunar One, the phases of the moon are precisely reproduced. Its perpetual calendar with orbital moon phases clearly indicates the date, day, months and leap years and has an additional 24-hour scale. The "night stars" orbits around the small second axis on a subdial conveying all the poetry of the starry canopy of space. It houses a L.U.C calibre 96 QP, chronometer-certified by the COSC and bearing the "Poincon de Geneve" quality hallmark.
