Chopard presents masterpieces to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the brand’s iconic work
For 20 years, Chopard’s Happy Sport watch has been favored by ladies for its bold, modern and novel design. To celebrate this important moment, the brand has added a new Happy Sport watch to this iconic collection. This unique piece is a real work of art, which contains the jewellery and watchmaking skills that Chopard has cultivated over the years.
1993In 1993, Caroline Schaefer created one of Chopard’s iconic works, the Happy Sport watch. Since then, the brand has re-interpreted it from time to time, sometimes even adding a bit of humor, but its elegance has always remained the same. It has also appeared in many charming faces, including Happy Beach, La Vie en Rose, Happy Spirit, Mystery Pink.
的 Perfect manifestation of superb craftsmanship in two major areas of Chopard
Diamonds dance freely in the space a few millimeters above the watch’s delicate dial. Today, to celebrate this magical moment, Chopard unveiled an extraordinary Happy Sport watch. This masterpiece features an 18K white gold case set with 958 square-cut diamonds and 1,978 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total weight of 65 carats. This watch, called Happy Sport Diamantissimo, is driven by the L.U.C 96.17-L movement produced by Chopard Manufacture, which combines the essence of Chopard’s technology in two major areas: fine jewelry and fine watchmaking.
This jewellery watch is a masterpiece of the brand. The various artisans and professionals involved in the production have meticulously invested no less than 4,500 hours of work, and the gem setting process has taken 1,700 hours. Its dial, case, and bracelet links are modified with stealth setting technology, which is an extremely difficult technique to master. Every diamond has to be cut and adjusted perfectly to form a seamless, densely packed surface with no gaps and no claws. The visual effects produced by this technique are extremely powerful. Diamonds do not need any support from gold, but simply juxtaposed together to make a deep impression.
