Chopard’s first flying tourbillon appears in full gala attire.

In 1998, on the initiative of Caroline Scheufele, co-president and artistic director of Chopard, the Maison became an official partner to the world’s largest film event: the Cannes International Film Festival. Since then, the mythical montée des marches ritual has been accompanied by creations carefully crafted in the Chopard workshops. And because gentlemen are equally keen to shine alongside women as the cameras flash at the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard is presenting a new edition of its first flying tourbillon watch, specially designed to be worn on the red carpet. The L.U.C Flying T Twin Baguette limited edition will be reserved for ten gentlemen who wish to own a timepiece that is as inwardly precious as it is outwardly refined.

Carved from platinum. Adorned with baguette-cut diamonds. Fitted with a black hand-guillochéd solid gold dial featuring the gilded L.U.CHOPARD logo and a sunburst satin-brushed rim. Distinguished by impeccably slim proportions. Highlighting this veritable festival of Haute Horlogerie, it is equipped with an exquisitely crafted self-winding flying tourbillon movement. This 7.2 mm thick ten-piece limited edition watch is the masculine counterpart of Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection, presented at the Cannes Film Festival.

Raising both form and substance to the highest degree of sophistication, this timepiece nonetheless maintains a soberly understated approach entirely in keeping with the subtle codes governing evening wear. Already the acknowledged Red Carpet Jeweller and creator of dazzling jewellery, Chopard also naturally finds its way onto the wrists of actors, directors, producers and gentlemen from around the world.
