This year, Chopard is rein­vig­o­rat­ing the Happy Sport col­lec­tion with the new Happy Ocean. Sporty and el­e­gant, Happy Ocean is ideal for ex­plor­ing the ocean floor, re­lax­ing on a yacht or strolling on the sand

the Happy Sport line has de­lighted fans of chic, sporty watches. The first of its kind when it was launched in 1993, the con­cept com­bines the no­bil­ity of di­a­monds with steel. Free of any set­ting, di­a­monds frolic be­tween two sap­phire crys­tals, il­lu­mi­nat­ing the en­tire dial. Each model breathes new life into the col­lec­tion. In the case of Happy Ocean, it’s a sea breeze that is en­er­gis­ing the Happy Sport uni­verse.

Happy Ocean fo­cuses on a nau­ti­cal ad­ven­ture. Com­bined with a large 40 mm steel case, the uni­di­rec­tional ro­tat­ing bezel with its two-tone blue­turquoise or blue-rasp­berry colour is in­spired by azure blue shades and brightly col­ored 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, like oxy­gen bub­bles or tiny sparkling fish, swim around this beau­ti­ful aquar­ium. Float­ing with to­tal free­dom and the weight­less­ness ex­pe­ri­enced un­der­wa­ter.

The brightly coloured straps in turquoise or rasp­berry rub­ber, adorned with a rip­ple mo­tif, are de­signed to with­stand the ef­fects of sand and wa­ter, as too is the navy blue NATO strap – a first in Chopard’s ladies’ col­lec­tions – that is sup­plied with the watch.

Happy Ocean also comes in a pre­cious jew­ellery ver­sion. An 18-carat white case, a navy blue moth­erof-pearl dial framed by a fixed bezel set with di­a­monds, sap­phires and either ru­bies or topazes : these new vari­a­tions en­dow­ing the col­lec­tion with sparkling al­ter­na­tives are fit­ted with an al­li­ga­tor leather strap and a NATO strap in the same navy blue shade.

Wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 300 me­tres for the pol­ished ver­sion and to 100 for the gem­set in­ter­pre­ta­tion, the Happy Ocean watch is pow­ered by a self-wind­ing Chopard move­ment (01.01-C) en­tirely de­vel­oped and pro­duced in the work­shops of the Mai­son in Fleurier.

A port­hole open­ing onto an end­less world of sea­side plea­sures, Happy Ocean is an in­vi­ta­tion to head for the open wa­ters. In­spir­ing day­dreams of a sunny, warm day on the beach, this time­piece con­jures up im­ages of that per­fect sum­mer dip in the shim­mer­ing blue sea.
