Chopard Happy Sport12:48 pm
Chopard has always been known for its fine quality jewellery watches. Since the brand’s inception in 1860 their production has always been limited (marking their exclusivity) and even today Chopard jewellery watches remain every girl’s dream watch. The Chopard Happy Sport is part of the Happy Diamonds collection, the most iconic diamond watch collection in the world, where special diamonds are placed in between two sapphire crystals above the watch dial, and are free to dance, twirl and shine. Worn by women who are free spirited, daring and express their individuality, the Happy Sport symbolizes Chopard’s elegance and the brand’s one-of-a-kind craftsmanship.
The Chopard Happy Sport Collection
The Chopard Happy Diamonds collection was first introduced in 1993 as a result of the creative ingenuity of Caroline Scheufele, Artistic Director and Co-President of Chopard. The Happy Sport collection goes a step further to make a sportier, younger and free spirited luxury watch collection. It was the first time that diamonds, the king of precious stones, were paired with stainless steel. Though this combination of stainless steel and diamonds finds its place in every luxury watchmaker’s collection today, yet, the Happy Sport stands out beautifully, with its floating diamonds above the hands of time.
Chopard Happy Sport Medium – Ref.278477-3001
A one of a kind watch where each moving diamond is cased in bevelled gold which allows it to dance and shine without scratching the sapphire crystals on either side. The 36mm case with a superior white dial is a perfect backdrop for watching the playful dance of the happy diamonds. Roman numerals are featured on the dial in four places and there is a date window between the 4 and 5 hour markers. There are 7 moving diamonds that delightfully shine above the watch hands.
A modern approach to fine jewellery watchmaking, the Happy Sport watch is sporty, at the same time, delicately feminine. The watch’s caseback has Chopard Happy Sport proudly engraved as a badge of daring individuality and a free spirit.
The precise and accurate quartz movement ensures superior timekeeping without ever stopping if the watch is not worn or placed in a jewellery box for a few days. The time and date are adjusted with the quintessential Chopard crown studded with a captivating blue sapphire.
A polished stainless steel bracelet with a hidden folding clasp adds to the shine of the sparkling beauty. The Happy Sport watch has a water resistance of 30M which makes it suitable for everyday wear, but it does need to be removed before taking a dip in the pool. The stunning combination of stainless steel and free moving diamonds makes the Happy Sport Medium a unique beauty. The sportiness of stainless steel blends exceptionally with the delicate radiance of the moving diamonds. This one is made for women who are daring; those who live life on their own terms.

Fine jewellery gets an infectious dose of youthfulness and sporty design in this rose gold Happy Sport watch. The watch case is made of 18K rose gold which, paired with the dancing diamonds makes a dazzling delight. The cheerful radiance of youth is what inspires this gorgeous and playful jewel watch.
An elegant silver dial with rose gold Roman markers and hands allows the seven diamonds of 0.35 carats set in rose gold sheathing, to spin and float within the sapphire. At the centre of the dial is a spiral sunburst guilloche pattern which adds to the classical look of the watch. There is a date window between the 4 and 5 hour markers.
This 36mm Happy Sport rose gold watch is equally classical as it is modern. It is powered by a reliable self winding Sellita SW 300-1 mechanical calibre that contains 25 jewels and has a power reserve of 42 hours. This movement is clearly visible via the see through sapphire caseback. Again, here the words Happy Sport are proudly engraved to symbolize the watch’s individuality and free spirit.
The watch bracelet is also made of 18K rose gold which makes it a worthy investment. The iconic Chopard crown is polished rose gold set with a single sapphire cabochon weighing approx 0.17 carats, blending very gracefully with the overall look of the precious and radiant beauty.
