Joining in on the advance Lunar New Year celebrations, Chopard presents its latest L.U.C XP Urushi reference starring the Chinese zodiac of the year: the dragon.

The L.U.C XP Urushi series first made its debut back in 2013 with a Year of the Snake edition. With the latest unveiling, the series is now complete with all 12 zodiac signs, all of which are adorned with traditional Japanese Maki-e lacquerwork. All examples of this new timepiece showcase a highly detailed dragon motif that takes a minimum of 20 hours to hand-finish by master artisan, Minori Koizumi. To ensure an unobstructed view of the stunning decorative design on the dial, only a set of gilded Dauphine hands and a subtle Chopard logo are incorporated on the watch face.

Boasting a slim profile and elegant proportions, the watch measures a mere 6.8mm in thickness with a case diameter that’s just short of 40mm. Constructed from 18-carat ethical rose gold, the in-house L.U.C 96.17 movement offers a 65-hour power reserve and is viewable through an open caseback.

Revealed as a limited edition of 88 pieces, the L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Dragon timepiece is priced at 26,600 CHF (approximately $31,275 USD). Visit Chopard’s official website for more details.
