Happy Sport Series Art Craft Extraordinary Creativity, Exquisite Craft

On the 25th anniversary of the HappySport series, Chopard brings together rare arts and crafts to create four extraordinary masterpieces. The brand brings together highly skilled artisan masters, using ancient craftsmanship and precious materials, to create new masterpieces. All four watches are the result of the coagulation of delicate techniques and extraordinary creativity, highlighting Chopard’s exquisite craftsmanship.

   In 1993, Chopard co-president and artistic director Caroline Scheufele cleverly combined steel and diamond materials to design a sports watch. At the time, sporty materials such as precious diamonds and stainless steel could be described as a novel combination. Caroline Scheufele used extraordinary creativity to pioneer the history of jewelry and combine the two. Even though the diamond has been freed from the setting, Caroline Scheufele wanted to make it more intimate and charming, so the diamond was no longer exposed only on solemn occasions, but was integrated into daily dress and jeans , Basketball shoes, stilettos or commuter outfits, HappySport series accompany women to enjoy a colorful life. Since its inception, the HappySport series has continuously evolved according to social evolution, and interprets various styles with its dynamic attitude. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this iconic collection, Chopard commissioned the brand’s master craftsman ‘Master Craftsman’ to produce four masterpieces that are comparable to the best in art.

HappyPalm watch
Timeless elegance

   Chopard has been an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998 and has produced the Golden Palm Trophy for it. The brand took inspiration from the distinguished trophy and launched the HappyPalm watch. Like the Golden Palm trophy, this watch is also made of ‘fair mining’ certified gold materials and set with diamonds, showing elegance. Graceful evening dresses, dazzling jewellery, brilliance trophies and magnesian lamps are coming one after another … The film festival is full of glory in this watch. Five awesome diamonds and a mini gold palm dance on the carved mother-of-pearl dial. The dial delicately reproduces the exquisite palm leaf clusters, using resin collected from the Urushi lacquer tree in Asia, and decorated with ancient Japanese maki painting techniques. The craftsman used extraordinary skills to sprinkle fine gold powder particles on the wet paint to draw patterns on the dial. This dazzling and charming plant background needs 170 man-hours to complete.

   The case back is also a magnificent masterpiece of art. The L.U.C96.23-L movement is hand-carved with exquisite golden palm patterns by fleurisanne technology. This technology originated in the village of Fleurier, Switzerland, where Chopard’s watchmaking workshops are located. It gradually became better in the mid-19th century and its reputation even spread to China. The carved pattern is unique: the sculptor did not engrav the decorative pattern, but removed the material around the pattern to make it jump out. Chopard is committed to inheriting this endangered craft, training fleurisanne carving techniques in the brand workshop. HappyPalm watches come with a 24K gold alligator strap or a diamond-set bracelet.

HappyFish watch
Treasures from the deep sea

   Sapphire merges into deep sea water, mother-of-pearl and gold leaves embellish the waves, diamonds outline crystal sprays … Chopard craftsmen lead us to dive into the deep sea with exquisite craftsmanship, and explore the dazzling and ever-changing fascinating world. Launched in 2002, the new HappyFish watch presents a gorgeous marine fish made of gold and mother-of-pearl, swimming freely in the dark blue ocean of snowflake-shaped mosaic sapphire, seven diamonds leaping around the fish like foam move. The ruby ​​fish stared around calmly, calmly. The fish curve is smooth and dazzling under the sun; when the night falls, the fish is shrouded in a soft turquoise blue halo. The exquisite carvings and the colorful inlays create a fascinating scene. The scenery is endlessly changing, and this dreamlike scene can be completed in 30 hours. The superb skills of the jewellery workshop are also displayed on the bezel. It is set with three different cut and staggered diamonds for a softer light color effect. This watch features an 18K rose gold case with a royal blue alligator strap and is equipped with an automatic movement.

HappySnowflakes watch
Dazzling like snowflakes

  Mysterious and charming natural beauty is Chopard’s endless source of inspiration. The HappySnowflakes watch celebrates the beauty of winter and presents dazzling snow and glittering snowflakes. This poetic watch is like a snowball in childhood memories, giving eternal charm to the fleeting ice crystals falling from the sky. A variety of arts and crafts combine unique materials to vividly reproduce the natural beauty. Chopard carefully selects mother-of-pearl from the shell to create the dial. Whether it is color, iridescent effect or texture, it is carefully studied to create a bright background close to the natural reality. The master of craftsmanship skillfully uses the mother-of-pearl inlay technology to draw the extremely delicate snowflakes on the delicate surface. Snowflakes accentuate the sides of the mirror and case. These hand-carved snowflake patterns come to life as if real snow crystals had just fallen on the watch and melted away instantly.

The bezel of this model is also embellished with snowflake inlaid decorations, shining like snow in the sun. Based on intuition and skill, the gem inlayer carved out the recesses one by one on the real gold material, and then inlaid the gems adjusted and adjusted one by one. The dial is decorated with swirling diamonds and is embellished with a snowflake-shaped smart diamond, making the snow scene more bright and charming.
The HappySnowflakes watch uses magical magic to evoke the tender memories of staring at the thousands of snowflakes flying through the window in childhood.

HappySportJoaillerie watch
Distinguished elegance

   ‘When I entered Venice, what surprised me most was that the light feeling penetrated my body and mind, the senses were released, and the joy of life and love suddenly overflowed my chest.’ (LeViolonnoir, MaxenceFermine) The fascinating style of the Venetian Republic described by writers and artists is vividly reflected in a noble and elegant watch. The watch draws inspiration from Venetian architecture and subtly blends Gothic and Renaissance styles, reminiscent of magnificent buildings such as the famous Palais des Doges. The bezel is studded with diamonds of different cuts, distributed between delicate platinum arched holes. The elegant guilloché mother-of-pearl dial also expresses the romantic atmosphere and timeless beauty of Venice. The blue dial is matched with elegant Roman numerals, embellished with diamond-set hour markers. The hue and material are in sharp contrast, the blue luster and the white light are intersected, and the mysterious and charming halo blooms, reminiscent of the colorful Venetian lagoon. The watch comes with a midnight blue matte canvas strap.
