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