When Rolex, Tudor, Patek Philippe, Chanel and Chopard pulled out of Baselworld around this last year, the watch industry went crazy. With plans to start their own show next year, the five brands made a grand exit that pulled the plug on Baselworld. A year later, Chopard joins Watches & Wonders 2021 together with Rolex/Tudor, Patek Philippe and Chanel and unveils three new novelties.
L.U.C Quattro Spirit 25
Chopard commemorates its 25th anniversary by launching its very first jumping-hour timepiece – the L.U.C Quattro Spirit 25. Crafted in a 40mm ethical 18K rose gold case with classic L.U.C characteristic, the new Quattro 25 is beautiful. As the first jumping-hour timepiece from Chopard, the timepiece houses an innovative and ultra-sophisticated movement – the L.U.C 98.06-L with four barrels that offers a power reserve of eight days.
The Grand Feu enamel dial with an hour aperture at 6 o'clock is classically designed. The 100-piece limited piece is available in hand-sewn brown alligator leather strap and limited to just 100 pieces worldwide.
Chopard expands its celestial empire with the all-new IMPERIALE Moonphase high-precision complication watch. Crafted in ethical 18K white gold case studded with precious stones that is set against a supremely feminine aventurine dial, the new watch showcases Chopard's expertise in crafting memorable timepieces for women. What adds more oomph to the elegant aventurine dial is the sprinkle of stars offered with five main northern hemisphere constellations. All of these feminine details serves as a backdrop to the astronomical moon-phase display.
Beating at the heart of this celestial timepiece is the in-house Calibre 96.25-C movement that clocks in a power reserve of 65 hours. The 2021 Chopard IMPERIALE Moonphase is available in a glossy blue alligator strap with an 18K white gold IMPERIALE pin buckle.
Haute Joaillerie with Dancing Diamonds
Guided the visionary eye of Caroline Scheufele, Chopard introduces three new creations in ethical gold, diamonds and sapphires for its 2021 Haute Joaillerie ateliers. As an ultimate emblem of the Maison, the new jewellery watches feature Chopard's signature dancing diamonds that are framed by a tiara of marquise-cut precious stones.
Nurturing the heritage of the dancing diamonds, the new jewellery masterpieces feature five setting-free diamonds that spin joyfully on their on axis and around the dial reflecting light in shimmering reflections. Encircling this beautiful display of Chopard's signature is a carefully calibrated marquise-cut precious stones that form a 'laurel-wreath' around the dial.
The three editions include an all-diamond version along with a pink and blue sapphire-studded editions. Each of these are fitted with matching grey, pink and blue satin straps, respectively.
