1990' Chopard 'Tank' Large Mechanical Movement - Ref. 2112 1
An fine and elegant Chopard 'Tank'
WHY IS THIS WATCH SPECIAL
The 'Tank' model has become one of the most iconic and elegant watch design since its launch about 100 years ago. The example we have here features a large solid 18k yellow gold case with a hand wound mechanical movement, making it an ideal dress watch.
Louis-Ulysse Chopard, the son of a farmer from Sonvilier, quickly conquered Switzerland and the world at the age of 24. The artisan watchmaker created works of art with innovative designs, which early on helped him export to such illustrious places like the court of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. Qualities like precision and reliability were very sought-after characteristics in watches, dating all the way back to the 19th century. With unique chronometers and pocket watches, Louis-Ulysse Chopard aimed to fulfill and exceed these "desires".
Chopard is one of the last family-run watchmaking and jewelry company. Karl-Friedrich, who managed the men's collections, developed sports watches during the 1980s and the Chopard Manufacture in Fleurier, which produces the L.U.C movements since the 1990s.
