Watches and Wonders: See Every Glittering New Chopard Watch

The luxury watch world’s biggest trade event, Watches and Wonders, is happening now in Geneva. Brands are currently giving retailers and the watch and jewelry media their first look at the intricately constructed timepieces they’ll be offering (and hyping) in the coming months.

Arguably, the buzziest timepiece from this year’s show is from Rolex, which dropped an uncharacteristically colorful and playful new model—the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, which boasts a dial filled with a jumble of brightly hued circles (it’s called the “Celebration Dial” because its colors reflect those of the brand’s famous lacquer dials).

Among the legendary jewelry ateliers that are also established watchmakers are Cartier and Chopard, which in my (admittedly jewelry-skewing) opinion just dropped the mother of all diamond cocktail watches (see the first watch shown below).

Chopard began as a watchmaker in 1860, founded by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, and is currently headquartered in Geneva. Since 1963, the company’s been owned and operated by the Scheufele family, and Caroline Scheufele is the maison’s creative director. The house’s new series of timepieces span the many specialties of watchmaking, and include jeweled beauties, sporty, clean-lined “men’s” models, and colorful takes on best-selling designs.

Enjoy the latest watches from the legendary house of Chopard:

The queen bee in Chopard’s latest drop—an 18k Fairmined white gold model set top-to-bottom with diamonds in an arrangement of round and pear shapes, studded with emeralds. The dial includes 12 pear-shaped diamond hour-markers that form a rosette. Mercy!


Also mesmerizing: An icy-cool jeweled watch with two rare fancy vivid yellow pear-shaped diamonds lighting up the dial at 12 and 6 o’clock. These stones are held by 18k Fairmined yellow gold prongs. The rest of the corolla surrounding the watch is adorned with white diamonds; a grey satin strap completes the piece.
This new ultra-thin Alpine Eagle has a flyback chronograph movement, a high-frequency calibre and a flying tourbillon. Featuring a L.U.C 96.40-L movement and boasting a guaranteed 65 hours of power reserve thanks to ‘Chopard Twin’ technology. It’s crafted in the Maison’s workshops out of Lucent Steel—an exclusive, ultra-resistant and shiny alloy made from 80% recycled materials.


Top and above: The new L’Heure du Diamant collection watch with an oval-shaped case fashioned from ethical 18-carat white or rose gold, has a textured mother-of-pearl dial rimmed with marquise-cut diamonds. The watch features the emblematic tree bark-textured gold bracelet sculpted using a proprietary technique, and runs on the Chopard 09.01-C self-winding movement. 


Chopard created a 25-piece limited run of this 18k rose gold IMPERIALE watch, which boasts a sapphire and diamond sky behind an artfully crafted lotus flower. The sky actually changes with the passing hours thanks to a rotating mechanism that distinguishes between daytime and night-time. Set with sapphires and diamonds and adorned with engraved gold lotus petals, the watch is powered by the L.U.C Calibre 96.30-L.
Chopard’s iconic Happy Sport watch gets a purple moment: The Midnight Purple Happy Sport comes in the 33 mm-diameter case in Lucent Steel.


Even better (in my opinion) is the Modern Mint colorway of the Happy Sport, which comes in a smaller case (30mm) in 18k rose gold with dancing diamonds and a mother-of-pearl dial.


This L.U.C 1963 Heritage Chronograph is part of a 25-piece limited edition “reaffirming Chopard Manufacture’s attachment to the noble values of Haute Horlogerie,” reads a brand statement. This new hand-wound flyback chronograph features a 42 mm case in Lucent Steel along with an English-green dial and L.U.C Calibre 03.07-L. 
This 41mm Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF features a Pitch Black dial with subtle orange accents. It boasts one of the most advanced movements from Chopard’s workshops: the chronometer-certified Chopard Calibre 01.12-C featuring a high-frequency escapement reaches its cruising altitude at 57,600 vibrations per hour (8 Hz). Serious!
