For the 125th anniversary of the Geneva Seal (Poinçon de Genève), the famous watchmaking manufacturing standard, Swiss watchmaker Chopard has released a commemorative L.U.C XPS timepiece, limited to 125 models (about $18,500). The watch is fitted with Chopard’s first L.U.C self-winding movement, which, despite being developed at the brand’s Fleurier manufacture (the brand also has facilities in Geneva), was originally designed to fulfill the exacting standards of the Seal. With two barrels and a 65-hour power reserve, it has been certified by Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) for accuracy. (800.246.7273, www.chopard.com)
