Chopard L.U.C Pro One: A Dive Watch For Relaxed Pursuits

The Chopard L.U.C Pro One is a dive watch which places a great priority on elegance and refined detail. In contrast to classic “tool” divers like the Rolex Submariner or the original 1950’s-era Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, the L.U.C Pro One seems designed under the assumption that the deepest descent its owner will likely undergo, is maybe the bottom of the swimming pool.

This is not a detraction, nor is it an assertion that the L.U.C Pro One isn’t capable of fulfilling the role of a real dive timepiece; after all, it is pressure-tested to 300 meters, and has both a protected screw-down crown and a unidirectional rotating bezel – all important requirements for a watch which may serve to save its owners life in a critical underwater situation.

However, most owners of this beautiful Chopard watch will find their mission far less arduous: to simply enjoy some very fine craftsmanship. From its impressively fine case finishing, to the superbly intricate dial with its decorative wave motif, the L.U.C Pro One is a beautiful watch which epitomizes the category of “casual elegance” – the dive capabilities are merely an added attraction, rather like the off-roading prowess possessed by a superbly optioned Range Rover. That Chopard offers the Pro One in 18K gold versions, including particularly lavish diamond-set models further substantiates this point.

Like all Chopard L.U.C. watches, there’s as much beauty on the inside as the exterior, courtesy of a fine manufacture 3.96 Chopard movement with a micro-rotor winding mechanism; while this one may be concealed beneath the nicely decorated solid steel case back, rest assured that finishing is exemplary.
