Chopard L.U.C. Pro One GMT Review

Chopard L.U.C. Pro One GMT Watch Review

  What a gorgeous mens watch, the Chopard L.U.C. Pro One GMT will not disappoint. Paying homage to the founder, L.U.C. comes from the initials of Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Two immediate details that bide for your attention are the orange numerals against the black bezel and the sunburst guilloche pattern in the center of the face. This LUC Pro One GMT has nice large GMT pointer, accented with an orange triangle tip. The indices have a very cool and unique design, I especially like the 12 o’clock markers. The hour and minute hands are bold and strong, mirroring the indices nicely. Chopard is using it’s LUC 96H24 to power this beauty, a 31 jewel engine, C.O.S.C., with an incredible 65 hour power reserve. Pictures do not do the LUC Pro One GMT the justice it deserves, in person it is a pure knock out. The design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, refreshingly original design (not a me too watch), make this a winner in any book. 

Pros - Beautiful original design, craftsmanship, 65 hour power reserve.

Consideration - Finding one to see in person prior to purchasing.
