The Chopard L.U.C 1937 replica is in Stainless Steel, with a satin-brushed silver dial with a very nice sunburst pattern. In addition to the satin-brushed dial, in 2011 Chopard also made available a white lacquer dial as well.
Large scale alligator strap that is beautifully lined with rust-brown, small scale alligator. It is both beautiful and supple, but with ample thickness. The buckle is nicely finished and bears the L.U.C mark.
The dial is adorned with Chopard’s now familiar bold Roman numerals, no radial flip, with a somewhat “squished” VI to accommodate the date window just above. Perhaps the most polarizing feature of this (and other) Chopard watches, some dislike the squished VI, and some dislike the presence of a date complication at all. While I stand with those who believe a dial is cleanest without the interruption of a date window, I must admit that I do enjoy the utility of the complication, and I find the presence at 6:00 to be the least obtrusive.
The case is large, beefy in fact, at 42mm, with medium length, thick lugs. It works on this watch. The sides of the case are brushed, the balance polished.Inside the case is the Miyota 9015 Automatic movement.
The finishing is quite nice, I think, particularly given the (relatively) modest price of the 1937 in stainless steel.
