Chopard Happy Sport New Models 2018 – 25th Anniversary – Steel/Rose Gold Case with Mother-of-Pearl-Dials

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its iconic Happy Sport watch line, Chopard enriches the collection’s repertoire of stylistic versatility with the strength of a self-winding movement specially developed by the manufacture. It also adds a precious and delicate touch with a pastel-coloured textured mother-of-pearl dial.

In 1993, Chopard Co-President Caroline Scheufele designed the Happy Sports watch based on an original and astounding association between steel and diamonds. In harmony with the spirit of the Happy Diamonds that grace its dial, performing free variations between two sapphire crystals, the Happy Sport soon became a powerful emblem of the Geneva-based Maison and of feminine watchmaking.

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Chopard transports the Happy Sport into a new era. Firstly, Chopard has drawn on its watch-making expertise to endow the Happy Sport with a mechanical self-winding movement, the 09.01-C, exclusively developed for 30 mm ladies’ watch cases.

Further, the new models come with dials made from mother-of-pearl. The silky iridescence of textured mother-of-pearl and the singularity of its naturally occurring wave-like motifs endow each Happy Sport with unique character.

Dressed in a 30-mm case, the new Happy Sport edition is available in four versions: a blue dial with a gem-set steel case; a pink dial with a steel and 18-carat rose gold case; a white dial with an 18-carat rose gold case; and a white dial with a gem-set 18-carat rose gold case.

These dials are enlivened by the mesmerizing presence of five moving diamonds that appear to be whirling above the dial.
