Happy Sport, the iconic collection from Chopard, was first created in 1993. The model is an innovative alliance between steel and diamonds that has survived almost three decades while preserving every ounce of its charm and modernity. This year, the Happy Sport collection is back under the name of “Happy Sport the First”.

This new mode is powered by a 148-part Chopard 09.01-C movement, with automatic winding and a 42-hour power reserve that is entirely designed, developed and produced in-house. The 20.4 mm-diameter of this movement is unquestionably the measurement that has determined the proportions of the latest Happy Sport models.
By using the golden ratio in direct relation to the diameter of the movement designed for Chopard ladies’ watch collections, the case of the Happy Sport has been redesigned in a 33 mm diameter that is particularly well suited to the female wrist. The result is perfect proportions, paired with a beautifully supple bracelet.
The round case is adorned with an understated silver-toned dial punctuated by Roman hour-markers in a shimmering shade of blue echoing the five cabochon-cut sapphires set on the lugs and crown of the watch.
With its seven freedom-loving dancing diamonds set between the two sapphire crystals topping the dial, this vintage-look watch epitomises the noble legacy of casual chic style.
The aesthetic appeal of this watch also lies in its bracelet with links composed of four rows of pebbles. Every bit as supple as a mesh design, it embraces and accentuates the slender curve of its wearer’s wrist, reinventing the notions of style, allure and elegance through a creation that is both sophisticated and sporty.
The first version of Happy Sport First is a limited edition for only 1,993 pieces, a quantity defined in tribute to the year the icon was created. A second version produced in a run of 788 a lucky number for Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director, Caroline Scheufele is also graced with a diamond-set bezel and a textured mother-of-pearl dial.
