This approach stems from the determination of Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, a passionate devotee of fine watchmaking who devotes great importance to the independent certification of chronometric precision and has chosen to make the latter one of the fundamental principles of L.U.C.
The BM13 calibre is anti-magnetic upto 1,500 gauss (that's 25 times more than the average timepiece can withstand), has a five-day power reserve, a chronometric precision between -4/+6 seconds per day and is incredibly low maintenance -- it doesn't require maintenance for at least five years.
