Chopard Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie

The Happy Sport joins the world of Haute Horlogerie with the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie model housing an L.U.C 02.16-L movement produced by the Chopard Manufacture. Combining the playful freedom of Happy Diamonds with the modern nature of the Happy Sport Joaillerie model, the Happy Sport Tourbillon embodies the skilled perfection of the Haute Joaillerie workshops with the technical virtuosity of Haute Horlogerie.

Available in 18-carat white or rose gold, the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie stems from the most delicate gem-setting techniques such as the snow setting that entirely carpets the dial with a flurry of diamonds. The Tourbillon Bridge is also gem-set, as is the bezel embellished with the refined touch of 36 trapeze-cut diamonds.

The crown features baguette-cut diamonds and a briolette-cut diamond. The 7 famous moving diamonds are spinning between two sapphire crystals. Their infinite freedom of movement reaffirms the joyful spirit of the Happy Sport watch.

The tourbillon movement is firmly propelled into the modern age by the Happy Sport attitude. It thus acquires its new stature as a contemporary kinetic work of art. This tourbillon movement was especially designed to match the style of the Happy Sport cases and this 42 mm diameter makes this the largest model in the collection.

Endowed with a 9-day power reserve corresponding to 216 hours of autonomy, the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie bears the imprint of excellence: that of the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark, a prestigious certification that notably distinguishes the quality of its finishing and the meticulous care lavished by the artisans on every single part of the movement.
