Above and beyond its technical prowess, the Alpine Eagle collection has been a guarantee of aesthetic finesse ever since its launch. Distinguished by its dial in Swiss granite from the Graubünden region, whose blue and green inclusions have been chosen to evoke the beauty of the Alpine forests and lakes as seen from the sky by an eagle, this exceptional watch brings two further innovative touches to the Alpine Eagle collection: a case made of beadblasted Lucent Steel A223 and a calf leather strap.
The extra-wide 44 mm-diameter case of the Alpine Eagle XL Chrono Only Watch is sculpted in Lucent Steel A223, an innovative steel alloy made from 70 percent recycled material and developed by Chopard for its anti-allergenic properties and robustness. At the heart of the case beats a sophisticated chronograph movement: Chopard Calibre 03.05 C) produced by the Maison's Artisan Watchmakers and endowed with a precision certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). Equipped with a column wheel, it represents the culmination of several technical innovations for which Chopard has filed three patents resulting from the daring approach of its research and development teams.
"We are delighted to support the cause of major scientific research into a disease that affects so many children and adults”, says Chopard Co-President, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele. "Ever since our first participation in 2005, this longstanding commitment has enabled us to develop unique and daring models stemming from lengthy aesthetic and technical research, endowed with powerful distinctive features that our collectors have not necessarily expected.”
