Chopard celebrates its love of life through this exceptional diamond watch issued in an eight-piece limited edition and honouring three animal species that are well worth preserving. Equipped with Chopard Calibre 96.23-L with its 65-hour power reserve, crafted from ethical gold, magnificently hand-decorated and entirely set with sparkling gems, it is the quintessence of all existing codes of excellence in both watchmaking and jewellery.
The impression of depth exuded by their mineral dial graced with multi-dimensional marquetry inlays makes it a veritable work of art, a fascinating miniature ecosystem representing a poetic and stylised world that highlights the virtuoso skills of the Artisans in Chopard’s workshops.
This Happy Sport diamond watch also offers a vision enabled by high-tech innovation serving to completely reinvent the legendary whirl of Happy Diamonds diamond watches and jewelry. The mobiles individually redesigned for this edition and accompanied by a delicately crafted hummingbird perform their weightless dance with unprecedented grace and elasticity, adding more life than ever to the show staged on the dials. Little Diamonds Do Great Things.
An exceptional movement was required to set this splendid theatre of animal and mineral life into motion. At the heart of this case, magnificently decorated by the jewelry artisans of the Swiss Maison, beats a mechanical self-winding movement, Chopard 96.23-L. Resulting from a development of the first Caliber (96.01-L) presented by Chopard Manufacture in 1997, this latest innovation is equipped with two series-coupled barrels enabling the watch to accumulate a generous 65-hour power reserve thanks to Chopard Twin technology.
The movement is also fitted with a platinum micro-rotor ensuring perfect winding of the barrels while saving space in the case of the watch. Adorned with the same gems as the accompanying dial, this movement is revealed through the exhibition back of the ethical 18-carat gold case, thus revealing the exquisite allure and the quintessence of the watchmaking expertise exercised by the Chopard Artisans.
