Chopard is continuing its extraordinary journey on the trail of the animal world, which began in 2010 when Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele imagined an Haute Joaillerie collection paying homage to the 150th anniversary of the Maison. Showcasing an impressive jewellery bestiary, the Animal World collection has already made a memorable mark on the history of Chopard and on Haute Joaillerie in general. The adventure continues with a ‘Peacock’ jewellery watch reviving the world of mischief and infinite beauty that has made the collection such a success.

Since the presentation of the first pieces in the collection, Animal World has inspired the wonderful world of Haute Joailerie with miniature frescoes and dreamlike tales. Each animal, invested with its own symbolism, represents a fresh challenge for Chopard‘s sculptors, foundry artisans, polishers and gemsetters. Thanks to their exceptional mastery of jewellery, they make the most of shapes, colours and materials, giving life to gold and gemstone animals demonstrating gestures and expressions brimming with emotion.

This time, Caroline Scheufele has chosen to honour an elegant peacock in a jewellery watch. The bird unfurls its tail with considerable panache around the mother-of-pearl dial, protecting the course of time with a bouquet of bejewelled feathers. The fascinating array of plumage is captivating with its multiple eyes featuring blue sapphire pupils and rimmed with intense green lashes. This ‘sun wheel’ revered in Indian mythology opens the mind to serene contemplation and regeneration of the soul. The peacock feather is also a symbol of justice, for the balance of its plumage hangs by a thread and any added weight might break it at the slightest breath.

Powered by a self-winding movement, this exceptional watch has been nominated in the Jewellery category of the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awards. Its creation involved no less than 340 hours of craftsmanship in the Chopard workshops, including setting some 2,230 gemstones – ranging from diamonds to Paraiba tourmalines, sapphires, tsavorites and lazulites – on a sophisticated anodised titanium frame.
