Synonymous with femininity, the Chopard IMPERIALE collection has been enriched with a 29 mm-diameter timepiece in stainless steel and ethical 18-carat rose gold framing a red dial adorned with the collection’s emblematic motif, paired with a matching leather strap. Beating to the rhythm of the Chopard 09.01-C self-winding movement, this opulent timepiece is a regal statement on the wrists of elegant women.

The new Chopard IMPERIALE timepiece features a discreet 29 mm diameter and stands out with its glamorous, utterly feminine and infinitely stylish colour. While remaining loyal to the design of the collection, this model reinvents it in a bi-material version attired in red. The centre of the exquisitely finished sunburst satin-brushed dial is adorned with a translucent pattern reproducing the collection’s emblematic motif. While the entire case is crafted in stainless steel, the ethical 18-carat rose gold lug-covers provide a charming contrast, complemented by gilded hour-markers with a warm shimmer matching the red of the dial.

Chopard is firmly committed to a vertically integrated approach and has therefore equipped this new model with a 149-component self-winding movement entirely developed, produced and assembled in its workshops: Chopard Calibre 09.01-C, with a 42-hour power reserve.

Inspired by the nobility and beauty of the world’s great empires, the IMPERIALE collection has become a central element in Chopard‘s watchmaking repertoire. Its carefully calculated proportions strike a subtle balance between classicism and modernity, combining exactness and strength with softness and sensuality. The collection’s statuesque silhouette is underlined by refined details recounting the history of imperial grandeur: sword-shaped hands, a crown shaped like a lotus flower and stylised lugs reminiscent of ancient columns. IMPERIALE thereby showcases Chopard‘s dual expertise as a jeweller and watchmaker, symbolising the encounter between glamour and precision.
