In addition to ensuring greater reliability, high frequency chopard l.u.c 8hf titanium replica watch – which naturally requires more energy – is in this instance associated with a remarkable 60-hour power reserve generated by a single barrel. The latest offering from Chopard Manufacture, the L.U.C 8HF model, is definitely bound for the history books as the exceptional timepiece introducing the new L.U.C 01.06-L, the first ever movement with a high-frequency escapement to be chronometer-certified by the COSC.
In terms of materials, the engineers at chopard l.u.c 8hf replica Technologies decided to work with silicon for certain escapement components (impulse-pin, lever, escape wheel) and developed a new means of fixing silicon on steel (patent pending).
A higher number of vibrations of the balance means less sensitivity to disturbances, and Chopard’s technology breakthrough takes on its full meaning when viewed from this angle. For if the choice of high frequency implies enhanced reliability and consequently increased precision, it is quite logical that a product comprising this added value should be duly recognised by an official certification.
The primary value of high frequency in watchmaking applications lies in a significant improvement in the precision timekeeping properties of a calibre, chopard l.u.c replica particularly in terms of rate resumption and stability. Beating at a frequency of 8 Hz – compared with 4 Hz for ordinary mechanical movements – meaning 57,600 vibrations per hour, this mechanical movement was conceived, developed and perfected by Chopard Technologies in Fleurier.
Entirely in keeping with the futuristic movement housed within, the 42 mm-diameter case of the L.U.C 8HF model is made of titanium. It is water resistant to 30 metres and distinguished by its crown at 4 o’clock, also in titanium and bearing the L.U.C logo. The date appears in a pointer-type display at 5.30, while the red small seconds hand at 6 o’clock travels far more smoothly than on ordinary Chopard Replica Watches thanks to the high-frequency escapement and its 57,600 vibrations per hour. The resolutely avant-garde case features titanium monobloc lugs and caseback with a matt finish. A magnifying glass built into the half-closed case-back is positioned just above the high-frequency escapement, providing a chance to appreciate its finer details.
