Chopard LUC XP Urushi Year of the Dog

Once again Chopard has partnered with Japanese Living National Treasure Master Kiichiro Masumura and Urushi Grand master Minori Koizumi on its annual LUC XP Year of the Dog timepiece, now in its sixth edition. Depicting an Asian Akita, the dial could be mistakenly as painted at first, but is actually rendered using the ancient lacquering urushi and maki-e techniques. Wild orchids and a jewelled dragonfly – considered a good omen and lucky charm – surround the Akita, which protects a mechanism powered by the ultra-thin L.U.C 96.17-L self-winding movement. As with previous editions, the timepiece is limited to only 88 pieces.
