Pictorial Review: Chopard L.U.C Mark III Classic (Ref 168500)

This is not my usual Seiko related post, but I wanted to share these gorgeous photos with readers here.

A friend of mine got hold of a Chopard recently and came to a conclusion that in its price bracket , the finishing of the movement is unbeatable. He took some macro shots of his Chopard and shared it with me.

The finishing is typical of Swiss watches, with beveling and Geneva stripes plenty, and is very different from the machined sharpness of the Grand Seiko movements.
