Chopard has rewarded watch aficionados with something truly worth crowing over this New Year. The marque’s L.U.C XP Urushi watch, emblazoned with the image of a rooster, is an apt acknowledgment of the year’s incoming Chinese zodiac sign. These limited edition timepieces were hand-crafted in Japan by an urushi (lacquer) master and are powered by a self-winding 96.17-L movement. The watch also boasts mother-of-pearl marquetry, an 18-carat rose gold case and a black alligator leather strap. This standout piece is sure to grant the wearer with year-round confidence and a true can-do attitude – the characteristic traits of the ever-resilient rooster.
