Introducing Chopard LUC XP Urushi Year of the Tiger (Notes & Price)

In contrast to our Western tradition of celebrating New Year’s Day on a set date, the Chinese are celebrating the second new moon day after the winter solstice. In 2022, China’s New Year will fall at 1 of February and the change of 12 Chinese celestial bodyguards. Leaving behind The Year of the Cattle, 2022 celebrates Tiger Year, an animal that in China is revered as the king of all beasts. Since the Year of the Snake in 2013, Chopard celebrated Chinese New Year with beautiful watches dedicated to the zodiac and adorned with ancient Asian Urushi lacquer art. As in previous years, the watch that was chosen to feature the designs was a very thin and elegant 39.50mm LUC XP with 18k gold.

Year of the Tiger

A well-established figure in Chinese art, the tiger is associated with courage, confidence, opportunity and ingenuity. Preserved in the province of Chopard’s Métiers d’Art, the roaring tiger and the beauty of the back of the song are made by hand using Russian lacquer. Lacquer is sourced from Chinese lacquer wood, and the details of the dial are illuminated by a spray of gold dust (Make-e). Once again, 88 Tiger Year dials have been given the opportunity to master the lacquer paintings of Minori Koizumi century-old Yamada Heiando Imperial lacquerware workshops.

The case was filmed from 18k ethical rose gold and has 39.5mm inches and a very thin diameter of only 6.80mm. The slightly polished bezel makes for a more open opening to enjoy the beauty, while the edges are adorned with a standing satin brush. To match the beautiful gold bag, Dauphine hour and minute hands are made.

The reduction in charges is possible due to the thinness of the 3.30mm LUC 96.17-L, which is observed through the display. Made in-house, the caliber has a round ring made of 22k gold. The weight of the gold rotor ensures that the two well-kept barrels (Chopard Twin technology) provide a 65-hour storage capacity. The ornaments also include the Côtes de Genève on the bridges and round loops on the starting plate.
