New Chopard 2014 Basel Preview Happy Sport Medium Automatic Two-color Watch

For more than 20 years, the Chopard Happy Sport watch series has attracted countless watch enthusiasts with its modern, bold and casual style. This year, this Chopard classic combines stainless steel and rose gold to create a watch with a self-winding mechanical movement that combines modernity and technical performance.

   In 1993, Caroline Scheufele designed the Chopard classic watch-Happy Sport. Since then, with the passage of time, the personality of this series of watches has been continuously enriched, sometimes with a sense of humor, but always maintained an elegant style. The names of each series are rich in meaning: Happy Beach, La Vie en Rose, Happy Spirit, Mystery Pink …
   In 2013, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series, Chopard launched the new Happy Sport medium-duty automatic mechanical watch. The famous happy diamond, the most attractive jewellery idea in the past 40 years, is even more glorious because of its mechanical movement. Today, Chopard is equipped with a new two-tone case for this self-winding mechanical movement. The Happy Sport medium-duty self-winding two-tone watch is equipped with a stainless steel and 18K rose gold case and strap. It is accompanied by a delicate silver dial with a Newsot pattern on the center of the dial and 7 active diamonds spinning happily on the surface. On the back, the self-winding mechanical movement is clearly visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, decorated with straight Geneva waves.
