Note that the sunray texture ratdiates not from the center, but from the Blue Dial Chopard L.U.C Lunar One Watch Replica logo. Introduced in 2005, the Lunar One gets a fresh dial design and a platinum case this year. No surprise here, but the watch looks beautiful and is yet another object of lust for all but 100 people who will get to call one of these their own.
The Lunar One’s alternating brushed and polished platinum case measures a very full 43mm wide, and squeezing this watch in a case any smaller would be nearly impossible.
Inspired by watchmaker and founding father Chopard L.U.C Lunar One Watch Replica , the L.U.C collection bearing his initials has been home to arguably some of Chopard’s finest contemporary work. Well, that collection just got a new flagship wth the Geneva Seal-certified L.U.C Lunar One – a dashing perpetual calendar watch with a moon phase indicator, cased in platinum.
The subdials do appear to me to be squeezing the numerals around them. It gives me the same feeling as when I’m unfortunate enough to have the middle seat on a plane, packed between two people too wide for their own seats.
The fact that the Chopard L.U.C Watch Replica is 11.47mm thick will likely keep it from appearing too big on the wrist for those who might be inclined towards a smaller case. The feeling of these subdials being a little “bloated” definitely makes the idea of the watch being even one millimeter narrower seem like a balloon-popping proposition.
The new dial Chopard Watch Replica introduces applied Roman numerals, a trio of subdials at 3, 6, and 9 for the moon phase and calendar complications, along with the “big date” aperture, which carries through from earlier variants. But even in all that activity, the deep blue sunray dial is probably the best possible canvas to contrast all the polished elements and indicators delineating the information on each register.
