We are gearing up for what promises to be a very exciting BASELWORLD 2014. With many new timepieces, we will be posting exclusive photos and live updates throughout the week. So don’t forget to stay tuned if you don’t want to miss a beat.
Here in exclusivity, we are pleased to introduce the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie.
This is a watch that single-handedly testifies to the entire history of a Manufacture. Epitomising the very core of the our values, at the exact spot where beauty meets precision, the Happy Sport Tourbillon is a radiant reflection of the most remarkable skills and hallmarks of Chopard. Combining the playful freedom of Happy Diamonds with the modern nature of the Happy Sport model, the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie embodies the skilled perfection of the Haute Joaillerie workshops with the technical virtuosity of Haute Horlogerie.
Indeed, this stunning model houses a L.U.C 02.16-L movement produced by the Chopard Manufacture. The tourbillon movement, a pinnacle of traditional watchmaking, is firmly propelled into the modern age by the Happy Sport attitude. It thus acquires its new stature as a contemporary kinetic work of art. This tourbillon movement was especially designed to match the style of the Happy Sport cases and this 42 mm diameter makes this the largest model in the collection. Endowed with a 9-day power reserve corresponding to 216 hours of autonomy, the Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie bears the imprint of excellence: that of the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark, a prestigious certification that notably distinguishes the quality of its finishing and the meticulous care lavished by the artisans on every single part of the movement.
Available in 18-carat white or rose gold, this creation stems from the most delicate gem-setting techniques such as the snow setting that entirely carpets the dial with a flurry of diamonds. The tourbillon bridge are also gem-set, as is the bezel embellished with the refined touch of 36 trapeze-cut diamonds. The crown features baguette-cut diamonds and a briolette-cut diamond. Last but not least comes the 7 famous moving diamonds spinning between two sapphire crystals.
To catch a glimpse of our latest creations, we will keep you posted on Twitter and our Chopard Diary.
