Offering this CUSTOMIZED WATCH – REGULATEUR that features a BLACK enameled steel DIAL with FRIGATE, GOLD PLATED CASE and QUALITY ENGRAVED original pocket watch mechanism with the THREE FINGER BRIDGE, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. It was made by the WANDOLEC ART STUDIO based on “L.U.C. – CHOPARD movement that dates to ca 1890’s.

 

This timepiece features a handsome BLACK enameled STEEL dial is in excellent condition, absolutely no chips of abuse. It is featuring a 60 minute checkered inner track border, gold enamel five minute Arabic numerals with individual gold cartouches for each number, gold steel Breguet-style minute hand and TWO separate dials: a recessed sub-seconds dial with “sweep” gold steel seconds hand and 60 second outer chapter with gold Arabic numerals and sub-hour dial with “sweep” gold steel hours hand and gold Arabic numbering.

The new dial has been professionally updated, and now is in excellent condition. The dial is signed L.U.C. above the sub-seconds dial and further signed REGULATEUR. Also there is decorated with the GOLD FRIGATE at the center of the dial.

 

It is a registered design model that features a three piece GOLD PLATED case that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. GOLD PLATED case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this excellent movement. The lugs are in great condition while Pumpkin-style winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The case is decorated with the HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING.

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a spotless and high QUALITY ENGRAVED, manual wind gold plated lever escapement movement with the BLUE STEEL SCREWS, THREE FINGER BRIDGE, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. The movement that is stamped trademark CHOPARD symbolthe HIVE with BEES with signed L.U.C.

 

The new GOLD & BLACK dial and the ORIGINAL movement are decorated with HIGH QUALITY MARINE ENGRAVING with the FRIGATE and are made in the same style.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the Original movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch and has been in addition updated and engraved by the craftsman. Each part of the mechanism, each millimeter it is decorated by a magnificent magic ornament. Some of the wearable parts on the movement might be replaced, and custom made to fit, since it is close to impossible to find original parts. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

 

This is a “NAIL SET” watch so you don’t pull the crown out to set the time. Instead, you press the little button near the crown IN and then move the crown to set the hands, releasing the button once you’re finished. It’s easy, so don’t worry about getting the hang of it!

 

It is fitted on a new Handmade of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO 22mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with gold steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it.
