To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its iconic Happy Sport collection, Chopard enlisted the unmatched talent of its Mains d’Artʼ to create 4 exceptional timepieces, each in a limited-edition of 25 pieces. The Happy Snowflakes watch is a testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of the master watchmakers, and pays a beautiful ode to the awe-inspiring magic of winter.
A Tale of Ice and Art
Chopard’s Happy Snowflakes is a symphony of white gold and diamonds and showcases the precision and skill of the Mains d’Art artisans. Happy Snowflakes demonstrates the use of exclusive artistic techniques like snow-setting and mother-of-pearl marquetry, which serve to enhance its splendor even further.
The Happy Snowflakes timepiece has an exquisite snow-set white gold dial and bezel, completed paved with diamonds. The dial is adorned with a delicate snowflake, painstakingly crafted from the finest mother-of-pearl, hand-picked by the maison. The mother-of-pearl marquetry technique used for the snowflake highlights the natural iridescence and beauty of the mother-of-pearl.
The snowflake motif continues along the sides of the 36mm 18K white gold case and on the crystal as well. Hand-crafted snowflakes are individually engraved all around and in keeping with the signature of the Happy Sport collection, there are three moving diamonds and one moving snowflake that dance around the dial as well.
Rhodium plated hands display the hours, minutes and seconds, and Happy Snowflakes is powered by an in-house manufacture automatic movement and has a power reserve of approximately 42 hours.
A glossy, white alligator strap, fastened by an 18K white gold pin buckle completes the pristine white picture of the Happy Snowflakes watch, rendering it a timeless accessory that would easily raise any ensemble to new levels of sophistication and elegance.
Despite its seemingly whimsical, winter-wonderland type theme, Happy Snowflakes is a timepiece that would find a perfect home on almost any wrist. Perfect for a young, dynamic go-getting woman of today, this timepiece would equally effectively complement the hand-woven silk saree of a regal matriarch
HOT Verdict: We would love to lose ourselves in this sparkling Winter Wonderland!
