Chopard Happy Sport has perpetually celebrated free spirited approach of women to conquer the world in which they wish to live while becoming the woman they aspire to be. Thanks to dancing diamonds that are happier when they are free the Happy Sport watch stages a fascinating and perpetually creative show. Its movement with automatic winding connects with women play a starring role, with the dancing diamonds and this constantly recomposed scene.

The new sport chic Chopard Alpine Eagle timepiece collection is a contemporary reinterpretation of the St Moritz, the first watch created in 1980 by Karl Friedrich Scheufele, now copresident of the Chopard house. Personally designed by him, the Alpine Eagle was driven by his passion for the Alps and by the lofty power of the eagle that reigns supreme there. Crafted from an exclusive, ultra resistant, light reflecting metal and set with diamonds, it beats to the rhythm of a Chronometer certified movement. Alpine Eagle is dedicated to the aspiring persons who outperform in their daily lives.

With its pure, stylised silhouette, the Chopard Imperiale watch collection offers a contemporary interpretation of the great symbols of historical empires. The arabesque motifs drawn from the embroidery of the draperies on which monarchs placed their insignia, Roman hour markers and a crown curved like a lotus flower all evoke a glorious heritage, while the shape of the lugs recalls the tradition of ancient columns famed for their perfectly balanced proportions.

Another Happy Sport is the emblem of Chopard’s creativity and boldness. Its playful, free spinning gems, dancing between two sapphire crystals, have captured the imagination since 1993, when Chopard became the first Maison to combine steel and diamonds. Its watchmaking expertise has enabled Chopard to equip the Happy Sport with a mechanical movement featuring an automatic winding mechanism specially developed for feminine cases. As Chopard like to say, little diamonds do great things.
