 Happy Sport

 

Timeless and playful as ever, Happy Sport has transformed perpetual reinvention into an expression of supreme elegance. This talisman watch with its 30 mm ov’-al or round case mirrors the joie de vivre embedded in the genes of dancing diamonds. Beating steadily like a secret luxury beneath the dial in white textured mother-of-pearl – a material Chopard has placed at the heart of its creations – is a self-winding movement developed and crafted by the Maison, Calibre 01.09-C. Four new variations have been added to the collection. The first sets sapphires twirling in a whole new way on the Happy Sport Oval dial. The second clothes its case and hour-markers in sparkling diamonds. Finally, Chopard offers two new versions of its 30 mm diameter round model with a glowing exterior combining 18-carat rose gold and stainless steel.

Happy Sport Oval

Chopard revives the first bracelet of its iconic watch

 

For the timeless, playful Happy Sport watch, perpetual self-reinvention is an expression of supreme elegance. With inimitable panache, it provides a fascinating material embodiment of successive eras, treating them as playgrounds for its ever-creative spirit. The feather-light, perfectly adjusted proportions of its impeccable and distinctive oval shape are now rendered even more feminine by pairing them with the original “galet” bracelet[1] adorning the very first watch in this iconic collection, back in 1993. It once again testifies to the in-house skills cultivated by Chopard and expressed in this talisman watch in stainless steel, 18-carat rose gold or as a two-tone version, the slender elegance of which echoes the gentle easy-going charm embedded at the heart of Happy Sport. Beating steadily inside, like a secret form of luxury, is a self-winding movement developed and crafted by the Maison, the calibre 01.09-C.

 

The first Happy Sport bracelet

 

Joyfully blending genres, steel and diamonds, the eternal and the ephemeral, the very spirit of Happy Sport brings together a vast range of possibilities within an iconic watch. Its new bracelet is the quintessence of this kind of paradox, expressed here in a bracelet made of metal and yet as flexible as knitted mesh. Available in 18-carat rose gold or stainless steel, or as a two-tone 18-carat rose gold and stainless steel option, this exceptional bracelet follows the curves of the wrist, the better to accentuate its slenderness. It pays tribute to the original Happy Sport’s first bracelet, which, in 1993, reinvented the very notions of style, allure and elegance with a watch that was at once sophisticated and sporty. Finely interwoven pebbled links lend the Happy Sport Oval an elegance tinged with vintage charm: a watch in the form of a simple yet precious talisman jewel. The smooth succession of highly polished rounded pebbles composing this bracelet ensure a uniquely supple feel that makes it wonderfully pleasant to wear.

 

The Happy Sport Oval watch comes with a bezel in 18-carat rose gold or stainless steel that is either polished or diamond-set. Its bracelet is entirely crafted in-house by the artisans of the Manufacture Chopard. It testifies to the vertical integration of all the skills and crafts that contribute to the prestige of the Maison’s watch and jewellery divisions. A unique combination of talents that are complementary and also ensure the in-house mastery of each stage involved in fashioning exceptional models – as indeed are all creations emerging from the Chopard workshops.

IMPERIALE Joaillerie Rainbow

Empire of colours

 

IMPERIALE embodies splendour and majesty united in the contemporary lines of timepieces inspired by the great empires of history for modern-day empresses. Graced with light effects and a profusion of colours, the two new creations of this watch collection crafted by Chopard are adorned with the colours of the rainbow expressed through multicoloured sapphires. Introduced in 18-carat rose gold with a white or grey dial and matching strap, these 36-mm IMPERIALE Joaillerie Rainbow watches display the passing hours on soft mother-of-pearl dials. Breathtaking watches to be worn like jewels.

 

Stunning rainbow

Entirely paved with diamonds, the 36-mm 18-carat rose gold case of the IMPERIALE Rainbow Jewellery watch offers a precious backdrop for women’s finest hours. Like a rainbow adorning the horizon with its colourful spectrum, the 18-carat rose gold bezel of this precious timepiece is set with baguette-cut sapphires in shades ranging from orange to violet through yellow, green, blue and indigo. Rigorously selected by the jewellery artisans of the Maison, these precious stones have been meticulously sorted and set so that their colours blend together in a subtle and elegant gradient inspired by the shimmering reflections of sunshine after rain.

 

This chromatic harmony is reflected on the dial: while the Roman numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock mirror the rose gold of the watch case, the intermediate hour-markers are set with colourful baguette-cut sapphires echoing the tones of the bezel. To welcome them, the dial itself is crafted from textured white or Tahitian mother-of-pearl, evoking the soft fluffiness of languorous clouds appearing on the horizon after
