Chopard Launches Imperiale Full Set

By P. Joseph

Swiss luxury watch and jewellery maker Chopard has produced its first watch featuring a movement created entirely in-house.

The Imperiale Full-Set is an addition to the watch brand’s Imperiale collection and includes an automatic movement made by Chopard subsidiary Fleurier Ebauches, called CHOPARD 01.03-C.

Boasting the same shape as the existing Imperiale collection, the new timepiece is made distinct by its choice of brilliant or baguette cut diamonds, available in either 18-carat white or rose gold.

Other features of the watch include elegant dagger-shaped hour and minutes hands, an alligator leather strap, glareproofed sapphire crystal on its front and back, a 60-hour power reserve and water resistance of up to 50 metres.

The Fleurier Ebauches workshops, where the watch’s unique movement was developed and produced, are located in Neuchâtel Jura, Switzerland.

Chopard was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard.
