What can happen when the beating of time keeps pace with a beating heart? The Happy Hearts watch is the ultimate symbol of this harmony. A Maison renowned for its boundless creativity, Chopard has decided to orchestrate an encounter between two of its most iconic collections. The big heart in the Happy Hearts collection finds its place on the playful dial of the Happy Sport, the watchmaking success that has been leading diamonds in a merry dance in a perpetually renewed spirit of Joie de Vivre. The result of this union is an even airier interpretation: a Happy Hearts timepiece enlivened by three freely dancing diamonds, a red heart as well as a diamond-set heart.
A timepiece for the Happy Hearts collection
This timepiece is a joyful new addition to the Maison’s emblematic Happy Hearts jewellery collection, which showcases colourful hearts as well as hearts embracing dancing diamonds. An array of talismans weaving ties between all big-hearted women, fired by a spirit of generosity and self-giving.
Chopard enriches the collection with this new timepiece by endowing it with a firm expression of its watchmaking expertise. Fitted with a 36 mm stainless steel case and a red alligator leather strap, the Happy Hearts watch features a white dial with a life of its own created by five dancing elements: three diamonds, and above all, both a red and a diamond-set 18-carat white gold heart.
This sparkling array stages a truly stunning show on the Happy Hearts dial, conferring the ultimate privilege of observing your watch not merely to tell the time but essentially to admire the incredible ballet performed by these hearts and dancing diamonds.
The Happy Sport story, a new vision of time
This watch with its iconic design is a new interpretation of the famous Happy Sport. In 1993, picking up the mood of the moment, Caroline Scheufele – now Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard – had the brilliant idea of designing a sporty watch based on an original and (at the time) quirky association between steel and diamonds.
This unprecedented bold move gave rise to the Happy Sport. Cultivating the spirit of the Happy Diamonds twirling across its dial like étoile ballet dancers between two sapphire crystals, the Happy Sport rapidly became an emblem of the Maison and indeed of feminine watchmaking in general. Whether paired with jeans, trainers, stilettos or in the office, the Happy Sport accompanies women in pursuing their dreams, throughout the many facets of their lives.
