Chopard Launch Happy Diamonds Anniversary Edition Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

Famous Swiss jewellery house Chopard has unveiled a new version of its popular Happy Diamonds women’s timepiece.

First created in the 1970s after Chopard designer Ronald Kurowski was inspired by the sight of droplets glinting in the sun at a waterfall, the new incarnation marks the 40th anniversary since the original was launched.

The watch features a cushion shaped case whose dial is encircled by prong set diamonds, while, diamonds move freely across the textured mother-of-pearl dial.

Othr notable features include a mini-subdial nestled in the centre of the dial, bearing its own halo of tiny diamonds.

Founded by Louis-Ulysse Chopard in 1860, Chopard has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned luxury brands.

As of 2014, Chopard’s watches are offered in six product families – one of which is Happy Diamonds.
