Personal Note

L.U.C Chopard are incredibly underrated in my opinion, making some exquisite watches with amazing complications, finishing and most importantly, designs! This becomes even more apparent when you see the original RRP's and then what price they can be had on the secondary market, not far off 50%! I would highly recommend booking an appointment to come and see this incredible watch for yourself in the metal.


The Brand

Le Petit-Fils de L.-U. Chopard & Cie S.A. is more commonly known as Chopard. It was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard in Sonvilier, Switzerland. Local farmers during the hard winters would assemble watches that would be collected by the master watchmaker. Paul-Louis Chopard opened in 1915 a branch in the nearby town of La-Chaux-de-Fonds. Later in 1937, the company was relocated to the heart of Geneva. Karl-Scheufele III, goldsmith and watchmaker owned ESZEHA making jewellery and watches. He was looking for a Swiss supplier and came to Geneva where Chopard was last on his list, they immediately got on and a deal was struck. Germany’s Scheufele family has owned Chopard since 1963. Their clients included Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. The world’s first watch crafted from Fair mined gold was made by Chopard in 2013.
