Chopard Happy Sport Oval Collection 2018

Introduced in 1993, the now iconic Happy Sport line celebrates 25th anniversary and Chopard is presenting this year an elegant model featuring an oval case that houses a self-winding movement specially developed by the manufacture.

The design of this new Happy Sport features a distinctive oval shape idealised through reinvented proportions. Drawing upon a sense of streamlined elegance conveyed through subtle upstrokes and down strokes, the bezel is slimmer at 12 and 6 o’clock, whilst more generous at 3 and 9 o’clock.

The Happy Sport appears in a version topped by an 18ct rose gold bezel. Its alligator leather straps feature a choice of colours ranging from noble royal blue to ultra-chic deep navy blue. Dancing endlessly across the silver-toned guilloché dial are seven moving diamonds embodying the Happy Sport signature.

An even more precious and exquisitely feminine variation replaces the diamonds on the bezel with pink sapphires, framing seven moving gems (two diamonds, two pink sapphires and three rubies) whirling across a dainty and supremely gentle mother-of-pearl dial. The final touch to this jewellery watch is set by a supremely elegant fuchsia pink alligator leather strap.

Chopard has equipped the Happy Sport Oval with a mechanical self-winding movement: the 09.01-C calibre specially developed for 30 mm ladies’ watch cases.
