Chopard presents the Happy Sport London Edition

To celebrate the reopening of its Bond Street boutique in London, the largest of the House in Europe, Chopard is unveiling a special edition of its famous Happy Sport watch in a limited edition.

Born 26 years ago from the inventiveness of Caroline Scheufele, co-president and artistic director, this watch collection has since continued to spread its free spirit and modernity. Happy Sport London Edition continues to distil its mischief through this limited edition steel. On its blue Chopard dial, which takes the iconic shade of the House, the mythical mobile diamonds are joined by two rubies and two mobile sapphires in tribute to the colors of the Union Jack.

The colors of the United Kingdom make Happy Sport dance

At the heart of a 36mm diameter Happy Sport steel watch Chopard chose to invite seven mobiles in the colors of the UK flag. On the dial of this iconic timepiece, which masterfully transforms the time that passes into an enchanting spectacle, dance three diamonds, joined by two rubies and two sapphires. To echo this constantly renewed choreography, the bezel of the watch is available in a polished or diamond-set version. The set is punctuated by the blue guilloche dial and the alligator leather strap, whose tones are a direct reference to the iconic color of Chopard. On the back of the timepiece, a special engraving sketching the palace of Westminster and the mythical Big Ben recalls the London city in which Chopard inaugurates its new prestigious embassy. This new version, the Happy Sport London Edition, is available exclusively in Chopard stores in the United Kingdom with 25 pieces with a set bezel, and 50 with a polished bezel.

Happy Sport, a new vision of time

In 1993, capturing the spirit of the times, Caroline Scheufele imagines a sports watch based on a unique and explosive association - steel and diamonds. An unprecedented audacity: the Happy Sport was born. Since then, Happy Sport has been celebrating a joy of life that women reinvent every day to conquer the world they want to live in and the woman they aspire to become. It is a real spectacle, in which creation is at work relentlessly, and in which the woman plays an indispensable role: it is her own movements that instill the impulse of mobile diamonds and this constantly recomposed painting. The collection is a reflection of this hectic life; since its beginnings, the Happy Sport has continued to lend itself to infinite metamorphoses. A profusion of models in the image of the unlimited creativity of Chopard.
