On the occasion of the

Alpine Eagle Flying Tourbillon 
An innovative flying tourbillon complements the Alpine Eagle collection, the first complicated watch to bear the Geneva Seal

With the Alpine Eagle watch line, Chopard offers a modern, sporty and elegant collection with a clear design and sophisticated mechanics. After a chronograph movement with a flyback function and a high-frequency caliber, the Alpine Eagle line expands the range of complications with a model with a flying tourbillon. With a height of only 3.30 mm, the L.U.C 96.24-L caliber is a typical development of the Chopard manufacture. With its outstanding features, the Alpine Eagle Flying Tourbillon model belongs to the exclusive ranks of those watches with a flying tourbillon that are both chronometer-certified and have been awarded the Geneva Seal. The watch has a 41 mm case with an integrated bracelet made of Lucent Steel A223, an exclusive and extremely resistant alloy with an amazing shine. The model is entirely manufactured in the House workshops. On the textured blue Aletsch dial, an opening at 6 o'clock reveals the delicate and lightweight tourbillon mechanism, which gives the overall look of the creation an elegant and distinctive character.

Alpine Eagle XL Chrono
In Lucent Steel A223 High precision function and dynamic appearance

The sporty, chic Alpine Eagle watch collection is presenting its chronograph with flyback function for the first time on a sporty, modern rubber strap. The Alpine Eagle XL Chrono made of Lucent Steel A223 is available with an aletsch blue or a deep black dial. Like the entire collection, it is inspired by the power of the eagle and the beauty of the Alps. Its chronometer-certified self-winding movement Chopard 03.05-C with flyback function is protected by three patents relating to precision and ease of use.

Happy Sport Chrono
The chic and ultra-feminine chronograph

The Happy Sport, a critically acclaimed icon of women's watchmaking that has come in a variety of bold designs since its inception, reinvents itself in a chronograph version. Sporty by nature and ethical by heart, this bold 40mm watch has everything it takes to seduce. Its seven moving diamonds swirl across an elegant dial set at the heart of a case crafted entirely in 18k ethical rose gold or in two-tone stainless steel and 18k ethical rose gold. The Happy Sport Chrono is powered by a chronometer-certified precision (COSC) chronograph movement that guarantees a 54-hour power reserve. It is accessorized with a blue leather strap which adds to its chic and casual look.

Happy Sport - 33mm
in 18k ethical rose gold - pure joie de vivre in shimmering gold

Curtain up for a dazzling performance: Chopard's iconic watch, the Happy Sport, makes its appearance in a golden robe. Its design was created according to the rules of the golden section, and the 33 millimeter case was made of 18 carat rose gold. This makes the watch the perfect embodiment of trendy sporty-chic style, accented by five dancing diamonds swirling across the gold-plated, satin-finished dial. The 18k ethical rose gold bracelet completes the golden look. The heart of the Happy Sport beats to the rhythm of Chopard's in-house movement 09.01-C, which offers a 42-hour power reserve.

Happy Sport Metiers d'Art
Three limited editions made of ethical gold with diamonds - Dancing diamonds enchant with a view of nature that is worth protecting

Chopard celebrates the love of life with three exceptional timepieces. They are available in a limited edition of only eight pieces each and show three animal species that are worthy of protection. Crafted from ethical gold, sumptuously hand-decorated and set entirely with sparkling gemstones, they demonstrate excellence in jewelery creation and watchmaking excellence. They are equipped with the Chopard caliber 96.23-L, which offers a 65-hour power reserve. Their stone dials are designed with multidimensional inlaid work. These works of art create a fascinating impression of depth. Resembling a miniature ecosystem, the dials represent a poetic, stylized world. This is a testament to the virtuoso skills of the talented artisans in Chopard's workshops. In addition, these Happy Sport models offer a vision - made possible by the most modern, innovative techniques and with a completely new look at the legendary cheerfulness of the Happy Diamonds. With individual shapes that have been redesigned for these three editions, the animals depicted appear like a mobile performing a weightless dance of grace and agility. This gives the dials a liveliness that has never been seen before.

L'Heure du Diamant
Feminine and precious

With L'Heure du Diamant, Chopard masterfully captures the beauty of diamonds. The house is considered an expert in jewelry watches and has staged the seductive clash of modern design with the king of precious stones. Now the collection is expanding with a jewel watch made of ethical gold, set all over with diamonds. The model has a diameter of 26 millimeters and is worn on a link bracelet. Inside is a hand-wound mechanical movement. It acts like a lucky charm and owes its expressive character to the perfect interaction of form and material.

IMPERIAL Flying Tourbillon
Limited edition of eight pieces made of 18 carat ethical white gold - Chopard combines the skills of jewelry and watchmaking in an extraordinary timepiece

The IMPERIALE collection presented in 1994 was expanded for the first time to include a flying tourbillon. The exclusive L.U.C 96.24-C caliber was designed and manufactured entirely by Chopard. It is the only movement of its kind that is both chronometer-certified and bears the Geneva Seal. House craftsmen have crafted the perfect setting for the highly precise IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillon – an 18k ethical white gold case set with diamonds. The aventurine dial is decorated with a lotus flower inlaid with mother-of-pearl. At the heart of this flower is the Flying Tourbillon, which offers an intriguing and moving sight.

The Sound of Eternity
The perfect acoustics of Chopard chiming watches

To mark the 25th anniversary of the L.U.C collection, Chopard is presenting a trio of new chiming watches. These timepieces have undergone a process of adjustment and analysis under the aegis of Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele and led by virtuoso cellist and violinist Gautier and Renaud Capuçon. The two brothers are brilliant musicians who have instilled their sensitivity, nuance and emotion into the acoustic fine-tuning of the L.U.C Strike One, L.U.C Full Strike Sapphire and L.U.C Full Strike Tourbillon models.
