Chopard’s iconic Happy Sport once again achieves a stunning first with the launch of a bold colour named Midnight Purple in reference to the sun’s rosy reflections painted across the sky as the night edges towards dawn. Yet another clear demonstration of the Maison’s unparalleled skill in faultlessly blending horological supremacy with outstanding jewellery design, this Happy Sport comes in the Manufacture’s optimally comfortable 33 mm-diameter case in Lucent Steel™. By using the golden ratio principles of aesthetic harmony in direct relation to the diameter of the Chopard 09.01-C movement with automatic winding, this dainty size is perfectly suited to the female wrist. Changing colour seemingly as one observes it, this magnificent guilloché work of art offers a skilful play on light as its signature dancing diamonds twirl in a never-ending disco-infused dance, and is flawlessly finished with bluish-purple alligator leather strap.
The bewitching hour of Midnight Purple
Bold, bright and thoroughly in keeping with the Happy Sport’s daring spirit, this new iteration takes its ability to metamorphose to new levels: over and above its revolutionary technical prowess, it is sure to bring a burst of energy to any outfit. Yet another example of Chopard’s equal mastery of watchmaking performance and jewellery design, the latest Happy Sport once again showcases its artisans’ peerless virtuosity.
By using the golden ratio in direct relation to the diameter of the Chopard 09.01-C movement with automatic winding powering its ladies’ watch collections, the quintessentially feminine proportions of the Happy Sport 33 mm is particularly well suited to the female wrist. Nestled in a Lucent Steel™ case, the state-of-the-art PVD guilloché dial in this model features a fascinating colour metamorphosis from blue to iridescent purple, like the sky when night begins giving way to dawn. Complemented by a sparkling diamond-set bezel and sapphire-set crown, it thus combines carats with colour and takes on the world with a dazzling play on light as its five dancing diamonds get the party going in true disco spirit: a nod to the endless parties that see the Happy Sport dancing through the night into the early hours of the morning.
Happy Sport, story of a watch icon
Spotlight on 1993 when Chopard Co-President Caroline Scheufele effectively captured the spirit of the times in designing a sports watch based on an original association between the robustness of steel and the nobility of diamonds. Ensuring that each diamond in its spinning-top capsule is arranged in such a way that its dance is never hindered is technical feat that only a few choreography artisans are capable of achieving. Thus embodying unprecedented daring, the Happy Sport was born, epitomising a noble legacy of sporty-chic style in an ever-changing choreography of dancing diamonds.
