On the occasion of Baselworld 2015, Chopard Happy Sport Medium Automatic iconic line presents a new creation combining steel and rose gold within the contemporary and technical watch housing a self-winding movement.
The Happy Sport watch was created in 1993, by Caroline Scheufele, immediately becoming an icon in its own right. Repeatedly interpreted over the years, it has lived under various highly evocative identities: Happy Beach, La Vie en Rose, Happy Spirit, Mystery Pink…
In 2013, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Chopard unveiled the new Happy Sport Medium Automatic. The famous moving diamonds – one of the most fascinating jewellery innovations in recent decades – added an unprecedented mechanical dimension to their entrancing natural charm.
Today, Chopard provides a new two-tone backdrop for this self-winding movement. The Happy Sport Medium Automatic features a case and bracelet in steel and 18-carat rose gold, framing a dainty silver-toned dial with a central guilloche motif, a tribute to the decorative traditions of classical watchmaking and a perfect backdrop to highlight the seven “happily” moving diamonds.
Moving diamonds meet a mechanical movement
Elegant, sophisticated and entirely loyal to the spirit of the original Happy Sport, the new Happy Sport Medium Automatic reveals, on the back, a sapphire crystal provides a chance to admire its mechanical self-winding movement adorned with a straight Côtes de Genève motif also known as Geneva stripes. Its 36 mm-diameter steel and 18ct rose gold case is water-resistant to 30 metres and fitted with an alligator leather strap or an 18ct rose gold bracelet. CC
