These exquisite timepieces and jewels by Chopard are what you must add to your collection of high-end accessories.
One of the last family-run, high-end watchmaking and jewellery companies, Maison Chopard is imbued with the aesthetic and creativity of master artisans that have steered the jewellery brand at the helm since its foundation in the 1800s. A legacy handed down by founder, LouisUlysse Chopard to his sons and taken over by German goldsmith and watchmaker, Karl-Scheufele, after that. The Chopard brand is renowned for their benevolent entrepreneurial spirit – ‘ethical luxury’ and ‘creative audacity’. Since the 1980s, Karl’s children Caroline and Karl-Friedrich manage the ladies’ and men’s collections, respectively.
Chopard has introduced the Alpine Eagle XL Chrono to their successful Alpine Eagle collection that was launched in 2019. The Alpine Eagle collection is a modern reinterpretation of the St. Moritz watch, the first horological creation by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, in the late 1970s. The flyback chronograph, a first for the capsule, comes in a new 44mm diameter case and is available in three versions – Lucent Steel A223 with an Aletsch Blue dial, Pitch Black dial and a creation which combines Lucent Steel A223 and ethical rose gold with a Pitch Black dial. Inspired by the power of the eagle and the beauty of the Alps, the collection already boasts 10 pieces in two case sizes – small and large.
Happy Hearts Flowers
Featuring two of Chopard’s iconic symbols, hearts and dancing diamonds, the Happy Hearts Flowers capsule comprises a ring, a pair of earrings, a chain pendant and a bangle bracelet. These jewels have five red, diamond-set or mother-of-pearl hearts arranged like petals around a dancing diamond. Fashioned in 18-carat rose or white gold, these luxe pieces embody the generosity of the brand and the ‘bighearted’ woman wearing them.
L’Heure du Diamant
The L’Heure du Diamant collection is reinvented in this luxurious timepiece featuring a new cushion-shaped dial rimmed with diamonds and the maison’s emblematic tree bark-textured white gold bracelet – also available as a leather strap. The ribbon of diamonds encircling the case lights up the delicate mother-of-pearl dial – itself dotted with 12 diamond hour-markers. Further, it’s fashioned using the entirely hand-crafted goldwork technique, which the Scheufele family developed in the 1960s, and the collection’s emblematic crown setting technique allows the diamonds to shine through.
