Happiness sparkles for more than 20 years with Chopard’s Happy Sport Collection


To mark the 20th anniversary of Chopard’s Happy Sport Collection, we are taking you on a journey of sparkling glory through its world of illustrious, beautiful and unique timepieces. Rediscover the stories behind 20 watches that helped shape our history and find out how our Happy Sport Collection became a great classic. Today we begin with the bold and daring Happy Sport watch from 1993.

Following the success of the famous Happy Diamonds concept by Chopard in the 1970s, the first Happy Sport watch was released in 1993. Its casual elegance shows off unset diamonds that dance cheerfully, exuding their beauty in all their glory and adding a new dimension to time. Perfectly worn to embellish jeans, or to light up an evening gown, the 1993 Happy Sport watch is an iconic timepiece and an ideal match for any and all occasions.

Caroline Scheufele’s daring innovative design of the Happy Sport timepiece set the horological world on its heels when Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director was bold enough to carry out an audacious idea: the unprecedented encounter of strong steel and the incomparable radiance of inimitable and beautiful diamonds. An inspired dream was born.

Contemporary, urban, exuberant, conquering, resistant and sporty, the new Happy Sport watch challenged convention and embodies Chopard’s values of audacity, creativity and innovation. It immediately became a must-have timepiece.

A prelude to memorable variations, it was thanks to this one special watch launched in 1993 that the Happy Sport was born. Still sparkling 20 years later, it is a dazzling testament to the success story and the timeless charm of Chopard’s elegant and seductive Happy Sport Collection.
