Louis Ulysse founded the company in 1860. It was the start of “LUC”. His strategy was precision and quality. The turning point of the company is 1963 when he meets Karl Scheufele of Pforzheim who wants to continue the watch activity. It was the beginning of the prosperity for LUC. Since 1996, Chopard makes its own caliber including the 1.96 with mini-motor, the LUC Quattro with four mainsprings barrels, the LUC tourbillon and in 2006 the company own column-wheel chronograph. At the same time, Chopard develops the luxury Fleurier quality seal in conjunction with other companies.
