Alpine Eagle 41 XPS
Following a flyback chronograph movement, a high-frequency calibre and a flying tourbillon, Alpine Eagle is extending its range with an ultra-thin model featuring a small seconds indication. Measuring just 3.30 mm thick, the L.U.C 96.40-L movement is just one of the feats achieved by the watchmaking artisans of Chopard Manufacture.
Its advanced features enable the Alpine Eagle 41 XPS to beat with chronometer-certified accuracy, while guaranteeing 65 hours of power reserve thanks to Chopard Twin technology.
The Alpine Eagle 41 XPS with its 41 mm-diameter case and integrated bracelet is entirely crafted in the Maison’s workshops from Lucent Steel™: an exclusive, ultra-resistant and remarkably shiny alloy made from 80% recycled materials. Its optimal proportions and textured “Monte Rosa Pink” dial endow this model with undeniable elegance and distinction; while its finishes, reflecting the highest Haute Horlogerie standards, have earned it recognition by the coveted Poinçon de Genève.
Happy Sport 25 mm
The Happy Sport watch returns in a version that is daintier than ever with a 25 mm case celebrating the spirit of jewelry watches and staging the wonders of five dancing diamonds. The softness of the pearly silvery grey, blue, pink, and green dials draws the gaze and envelops it in an ultra-chic chromatic texture.
This new Happy Sport 25 mm has retained several of the collection’s key characteristics, including the deliberate association of materials belonging to radically different registers: Lucent Steel™, ethical gold, and diamonds. Thus unleashed, diamonds are rendered more accessible without losing anything of their magic or their fascination.
Seven versions of this unprecedentedly sized case are available: in fully polished Lucent Steel™ or adorned with a diamond-set bezel; and in steel featuring a crown, cabochons, and a polished or diamond-set bezel in ethical 18-karat rose gold.
L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph
Aesthetic refinement and mechanical performance. This is the world that has given life to the L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph: an exclusive, numbered 25-piece limited edition reaffirming Chopard Manufacture’s attachment to the noble values of Haute Horlogerie.
This new hand-wound flyback chronograph features a 42 mm case in Lucent Steel along with an English-green dial and L.U.C Calibre 03.07-L delivering chronometer-certified precision.
The latter is in itself a mechanical work of art, offering outstanding functionality. An ageless timepiece embodying the very essence of the traditional chronograph, the L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph is honored by the prestigious Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.
In a creative gesture imbued with the innate elegance of the L.U.C collection, Chopard Manufacture draws inspiration from the first timepiece in the collection, presented in 1997, by combining the sophistication of a guilloché dial in salmon-coloured solid gold, a 36.5 mm case made of Chopard’s exclusive Lucent Steel™ alloy, as well as a finely crafted chronometer-certified movement.
L.U.C Calibre 96.40-L is wound by a gold micro-rotor and equipped with the two barrels based on Chopard Twin technology. Eagerly awaited by Haute Horlogerie collectors, this model is as colorful as it is elegant.
Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph
Chopard’s Mille Miglia collection welcomes a new design with the Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph model. It adopts a 40.5 mm case made from Chopard’s exclusive Lucent Steel, an ultra-legible dial in a selection of colours inspired by automotive bodywork, and a superb ‘glass box’ crystal for a magnificently retro look.
The Lucent Steel models feature dials named Verde Chiaro (light green) and Rosso Amarena (cherry red), each with a circular satin-brushed finish, or in Nero Corsa (racing black) with an engine-turned finish. Meanwhile, the bi-material version in Lucent Steel and ethical gold has a dial in circularly satin-brushed Grigio-Blue (grey blue). These colours evoke the paintwork and interiors of classic cars, while the satin-brushing and engine-turning refer to the distinctive backgrounds of dashboard instruments and the texture of upholstery.
The back of each watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal, affording a view of the self-winding chronograph movement certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute and endowed with a 54-hour power reserve.
This model is enriched with a limited numbered edition of 25 original timepieces crafted in ethical 18-karat rose gold and highlighting the magnificence of the lotus flower. The collection’s emblematic floral motif appears against the backdrop of a sky whose ever-changing beauty evolves with the passing hours thanks to a rotating mechanism that distinguishes between daytime and night-time.
Set with sapphires and diamonds and adorned with engraved gold lotus petals, the dial exudes an aura of absolute refinement, brought to life by L.U.C Calibre 96.30-L developed by the Artisans of the Manufacture.
