Stainless steel sport watches with integrated bracelets are something that will always be on the top of the market from then till now. In the past few years, a number of new entry models from top watches brands have joined a crowded field of watches that employ an aesthetic code originating in the 1970s. One of the brands that have joined is Chopard with their Alpine Eagle XL Chrono.
The Alpine Eagle is a symphony of exquisite details, this sporty-chic timepiece features a flyback chronograph in a 44 mm diameter case. The Alpine Eagle XL Chrono timepiece with integrated bracelet is, like the entire collection, very much inspired by the power of the eagle and the beauty of the Alps.
The case is made from lucent steel A223, a steel alloy that was developed by Chopard and Voestalpine Böhler. Known for its anti-allergenic properties, this special steel alloy material has an intensely reflective character, and impressive hardness. Made partially from recycled steel, it’s 50% more resistant to abrasion than run-of-the-mill stainless.
Embellished with a sunburst motif, the galvanic grey brass dial inspired by the iris of an eagle, reminds us that Nature is the most gifted of all muses. The dial also features a big index and three subdials to support its chronograph function. With its counterweight shaped like an eagle’s feather, the rhodium-plated second hand takes the form of an arrow.
Evoking a spirit of adventure, the crown is engraved with a compass rose, an instrument that has helped adventurers find their way since ancient times. Today, it has become the emblem of contemporary eagles capable of choosing the right direction in the pursuit of their destiny, an invitation to explore the majesty of the natural world that surrounds us.
The gently tapered Alpine Eagle bracelet comprises a single ingot-shaped link, topped by a raised central cap reminiscent of its mountain biotope. Crafted in Chopard Lucent Steel A223, it is a feat of both technical execution and style.
This watch is powered by the Chopard 03.05 – C Caliber mechanical self winding movement that has a 60 hours power reserve. Developed exclusively in Chopard’s watchmaking workshops and chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, this movement is so reliable for its accuracy.
Both elegant and sport inspired, this watch is perfect for your office outfit or casual night with wine on your hand. For more information about our Chopard collection, visit your nearest The Time Place boutique.
