Chopard Happy Sport – Flying the banner of Joie de Vivre
A sport-chic style icon, the Chopard Happy Sport watch reinvents itself through the graceful momentum of supreme femininity. Opulently attired in pink, it stages a merry waltz of seven footloose and fancy-free dancing diamonds whirling across its textured mother-of-pearl dial. Beating at the heart of its 36 mm-diameter two-tone case in stainless steel and ethical 18-carat ethical rose gold is a self-winding movement ready to accompany free-spirited women in the flamboyant hours of their daily lives. All infused with a single motto, by way of a talisman: “Be happy”.
Lady in pink
More than a colour, pink is a token of femininity evoking loving feelings, a comforting touch and a graceful spirit. Chopard’s workshops are now combining it with the ethical 18-carat rose gold used to craft the bezel, cabochons and crown of this new Happy Sport watch, testifying to the Maison’s loyal commitment to sustainable luxury.
The textured mother-of-pearl adorning the dial creates an infinite number of shimmering reflections and shades of pink, subtly revealing emotions, and easy on the eye. A matching alligator strap embraces the wrist while the pink sapphire on the crown reaffirms the precious and very feminine character of this guardian of time.
Seven dancing diamonds for a talisman
In this sparkling theatre, the actors are ready to take to the stage: seven dancing diamonds whirl and twirl, picking up every move of the woman who wears the Happy Sport on her wrist. A perpetually renewed live show imbued with light, elegance and freedom. Diamonds with a smile, like the promise of infinite happiness.
These opulent details, combined with generous curved lines, echo the perfect proportions of the Happy Sport, whose 36 mm-diameter steel case houses a mechanical movement with automatic winding and a 42-hour power reserve.
Happy Sport: Style invented
She might be in jeans, perched on stilettos, and have grabbed a trench coat in a hurry as she left the office. She’ll have slipped her pumps into her handbag for an evening at the opera. On her wrist, her Happy Sport. On her mind: the icons of 90s chic, the era which saw the birth of her cult watch, symbol of a glamorous, multifaceted age…Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Kate Moss and Lucy Liu all belong to her iconographic hall of fame, legends who co-wrote the finest hours of sport-chic style with Caroline Scheufele. Their signature? A daringly free spirit.
In the age of mix and match, of minimalism and immense luxury, anything was possible as long as there was a true style signature. A signature invented by Caroline Scheufele in 1993 by giving substance to an era through a watch with a revolutionary spirit, starring an alliance between steel and diamonds. A first in the codified world of watchmaking, this daring feat was to become a must-have that made history. On the wrists of style-making women, the Happy Sport has become an icon.
