Chopard rein­vig­o­rates the iconic Happy Sport col­lec­tion with the new Happy Ocean

Indonesia Tatler - - Style Watches -

ver since it was launched, the Happy Sport col­lec­tion has been an un­de­ni­able suc­cess. For more than 20 years, the Happy Sport line has de­lighted fans of chic and sporty watches. Enriched with orig­i­nal cre­ations, it is oc­ca­sion­ally off­beat but con­sis­tently de­light­ful.

This year, Chopard is once again rein­vig­o­rat­ing this iconic col­lec­tion with the new Happy Ocean. Both sporty and el­e­gant, Happy Ocean is the ideal watch for ex­plor­ing the ocean floor, re­lax­ing on a yacht or strolling on the sand. As tech­ni­cal as it is fun,

it is wa­ter­re­sis­tant to 300 me­tres—100 me­tres for the gem­set ver­sion— and beats to the rhythm of a self-wind­ing Chopard move­ment, de­vel­oped and pro­duced in the work­shops of the Mai­son in Fleurier.

The con­cept com­bines the no­bil­ity of di­a­monds with steel. Free of any set­ting, di­a­monds frolic be­tween two sap­phire crys­tals, il­lu­mi­nat­ing the en­tire dial. Com­bined with a large 40mm steel case, the uni­di­rec­tional ro­tat­ing bezel with its two-tone blue-turquoise or bluerasp­berry colours is in­spired by azure blue shades and brightly coloured corals, while fea­tur­ing a wave-shaped de­sign for eas­ier han­dling un­der wa­ter. The screw-down crown is marked with a C and the case­back is en­graved with a wave mo­tif.

The in­tense blue dial brings to mind the ocean depths and is en­hanced with a white min­utes hand hemmed with blue or rasp­berry that glows at night or in dark, deep wa­ters. The hour-mark­ers and hours hands also il­lu­mi­nate with a blue hue, with all other in­di­ca­tions re­quired for div­ing in green. Five mov­ing di­a­monds swim around this beau­ti­ful aquar­ium. Adorned with a rip­ple mo­tif, the brightly coloured straps in turquoise or rasp­berry rub­ber and the navy-blue NATO strap are de­signed to with­stand the ef­fects of sand and wa­ter.

Happy Ocean also comes in a pre­cious jew­ellery ver­sion, fea­tur­ing an 18ct white case, and a navy-blue mother-of-pearl dial framed by a fixed bezel set with di­a­monds, sap­phires and ei­ther ru­bies or topazes. These new vari­a­tions are fit­ted with an al­li­ga­tor leather strap and a NATO strap in the same navy blue shade. Pre-or­der yours at your near­est Chopard bou­tique.
