L’Orologio delle Donne dallo Spirito Libero

Con Happy Sport, Chopard non ha solo inventato un orologio svizzero, ma una creazione contemporanea che abbraccia lo stile di vita della Donne! Prezioso e disinvolto, s’indossa tanto sul campo da tennis quanto in una serata a cena. “A watch that I can wear 24 hours a day!”; ecco come lo descrive la sua creatrice Caroline Scheufele. Dal primo modello della collezione presentato nel 1993, questo orologio con diamanti, quintessenza dello stile sportivo ed elegante, illumina la vita delle Donne Libere e le accompagna tutti i giorni alla conquista dei traguardi che vogliono raggiungere e del mondo che vogliono contribuire a costruire!

Design Iconico

Happy Sport è un’Opera d’Arte dell’orologeria: un segnatempo femminile, delicato, dalle forme morbide, il palcoscenico ideale per la danza degli iconici diamanti in movimento, pensati come un’eco al vento di libertà che ha trasformato la vita delle donne del XX secolo. Per il suo particolare design, l’orologio con diamanti Happy Sport, il primo ad abbinare la nobiltà del diamante alla robustezza dell’acciaio, è un’icona a metà strada tra l’orologio e il gioiello.

Il savoir-faire di Chopard

Tutte le fasi di produzione dell’orologio con diamanti Happy Sport sono realizzate nei laboratori di Chopard facendo ricorso al savoir-faire della Maison sia nell’orologeria che nella gioielleria.
Fusione dei metalli preziosi, realizzazione del calibro Chopard 09.01-C, lavorazione della cassa e del bracciale in metallo, incastonatura, coreografia dei diamanti in movimento: Happy Sport contiene le emozioni di ogni artigiano che ha messo il suo talento al servizio di questo segnatempo.

L’affidabilità di un movimento di manifattura

L’esperienza di Chopard nell’orologeria e il suo approccio verticalmente integrato consentono alla collezione Happy Sport di ospitare il movimento Chopard 09.01-C, la somma di 148 componenti. Questo calibro a carica automatica garantisce un’autonomia di 42 ore ed è interamente progettato, sviluppato e realizzato in-house.

[mechanical clicking sounds] 

(The hands rise from the dial and the dial lifts away completely, leaving the movement bare. The movement slides apart in an animated exploded view, each cog, wheel, spring and screw rotating independently.)

È grazie all’esperienza unica degli Artigiani di Chopard che i diamanti possono volteggiare sul quadrante. Inventati dalla Maison nel 1976, i diamanti in movimento danzano liberi sul quadrante dell’orologio grazie al talento degli Artigiani Coreografi che ne dirigono il movimento.

Materiali responsabili

La collezione si fa portavoce delle scelte strategiche di Chopard per promuovere il lusso sostenibile. I nostri orologi svizzeri Happy Sport in acciaio, infatti, sono dotati di casse in Lucent Steel™, una lega responsabile esclusiva di Chopard, composta per almeno l’80% da materiale riciclato, mentre i modelli in oro sono realizzati con Oro Etico.

(The words spoken in the video appear on screen among the different images.) 

Our world's most beautiful creation is the planet itself. 

[violin music] 

(The planet Earth turns slowly against a starry black background.) 

Unique, diverse and sublime: filled with treasures that envelop us, captivate us, recharge us. 

(The Colosseum, the rainforest, a sunset, a waterfall, a person hiking up a mountain peak, a person spreading their arms in the sun, the sea, sunlight through the trees, a bull, an eagle, an elephant appear in quick succession.)

The human and natural challenges we face also flood us with emotions which drive us to respond, to act, to overcome.

(A flame reveals a metal stylized golden palm branch. Several images of the Chopard Manufacture in Switzerland appear with its impeccable gardens, and breathtaking mountainous backdrop. A black-and-white sketch of a watch transforms into an L.U.Chopard timepiece against a white background.)

Chopard, a family-owned Maison, is committed to the journey to sustainable luxury, where aesthetics meets ethics. A journey that began a long time ago. 

(Caroline Scheufele talks on a stage with a slideshow bearing the words "Chopard, the journey to sustainable luxury #chopardethicalgold". A model wears a necklace of silver wild cats sitting atop large purple jewel stones. Another wears a pendant with a stylized wolf howling at the moon, and another a large pendant featuring jewel-encrusted camels in the desert. Chains of sparkling butterflies lie on a layer of pink flowers.)

In 2010, Chopard partnered with the WWF to protect biodiversity and safeguard the Earth's natural heritage.

(Artisans work on pieces in the Chopard workshops.) 

Nobody travels such a vital path alone. Chopard is a member of the Responsible Jewelry Council, achieving RJC Code of Practices Certification in 2012. 

(Close-up of a ring made up of gold squares, a pendant with concentric circles containing mobile diamonds, a Happy Sport timepiece. An artisan polishes a piece, another cuts a shape out of a sheet of metal.)

We are committed to sharing and engaging collectively within the industry to reinvent key points in the value chain. Starting with gold, the signature material in so many Chopard creations. 

(Close-up of gold nuggets being poured into a furnace, of the gold melting. Close-up of gloved hands carefully placing a finished gold timepiece down. An artisan inspects a finished gold palm leaf.)

Thanks to our in-house gold foundry, since 2018, Chopard has been using 100% ethical gold. This meets the highest social and environmental standards existing today. Chopard is proud to actively support a Colombian artisanal gold panning community, one of the most environmentally conscious gold mining operations in the world. 

(A river snakes between trees in a forest. Gold panners work, standing in the river and sifting through the earth and stones. Images of the mountains and forests, a birds eye view of the panners in the water.)

[the music reaches a crescendo] 

Chopard strives to source stones of traceable origin. 

(A rough diamond sparkles against a black background. It flashes green as it is cut with lasers.)

Our pledge to best practices is embodied in the acquisition of a rare and responsibly sourced 342-carat diamond. This gave birth to the exceptional Garden of Kalahari collection.

(A magnificent diamond necklace sparkles, surrounded by pansies.)

Other responsibly sourced stones such as opals, emeralds, and tourmalines have shone as part of Chopard's Green Carpet Collection. 

(Close-up of opals, emeralds and tourmalines, of leaf-shaped jewels with green gemstones.)

Like the alchemists of legend, Chopard now transforms materials sometimes wrongly considered less noble into true works of art, by giving a second life to steel. 

(Abstract black-and-white close-ups of metal at different stages of treatment.)

[the music starts again, quieter] 

Alpine Eagle watches have been made since 2019 with a minimum of 70% recycled steel. 

(Close-ups of an Alpine Eagle timepiece at different angles, glinting against a black background.)

But our new commitment takes this further, much further. As of 2023, Chopard commits to using 80% recycled steel in all its existing collections.

(Images of a beachside town with deep blue water, a snowy forest, the smiling faces of Chopard artisans, Caroline Scheufele and Karl-Friedrich Scheuefele outdoors, gold panners, molten gold.)

We have also committed to working with the industry to achieve net zero steel by 2030, by joining the Climate Group Steel Zero. A first in our industry, but not the last step in our journey to sustainable luxury.

(Close-ups of gold pendants, an artisan inspecting a timepiece, an intricate necklace with purple gemstones, a shining gold palm leaf, the inner workings of a watch through its face, the wild cat necklace and the large diamond necklace. Artisans heat steel then temper it.)

Yes, the journey is long. But it is truly empowering.

(Images of forests, trees and the Chopard Manufacture among snowy rooftops.)

With every step, we can all learn more about ourselves, our craft and our responsibilities towards the Earth. With every step, Chopard gets a little closer to the pure emotion which inspires us. Because our emotions inspire us for the better. Chopard, the artisan of emotions since 1860.

(The screen turns black, leaving only the words last spoken written on the screen.)

Diamanti della più Alta Qualità

Alle 4 C – Cut, Clarity, Colour and Carat weight ovvero taglio, purezza, colore e peso in carati – richieste per tutti i diamanti che Chopard acquista presso fornitori certificati dal Responsible Jewellery Council, i nostri Artigiani aggiungono la loro perizia unica per far danzare le pietre preziose.

Storia di un’Icona

All'inizio degli anni 1990, Caroline Scheufele decide di far danzare gli Happy Diamonds di Chopard non più attorno al quadrante come accadeva in precedenza, bensì sul quadrante. “Impossibile!” obietta il responsabile del laboratorio, prima di proseguire con la promessa di regalarle una rosa per ogni esemplare venduto, se mai ci fosse riuscita.

Grazie al suo intuito e al suo approccio audace, Caroline Scheufele svela nel 1993 un orologio in acciaio con diamanti che esibisce un bracciale a maglie “galet” morbido e comodo, zaffiri cabochon incastonati sulle anse e sulla corona, e sette diamanti in movimento che volteggiano liberi sul quadrante.

Con il nuovo orologio con diamanti Happy Sport, nuova icona della moda, nasce lo spirito sporty-chic. La stampa lo acclama, le donne lo desiderano e il responsabile del laboratorio, che aveva previsto un fallimento e promesso una rosa per ogni orologio venduto, finisce col regalare alla Co-Presidente un intero roseto che, a ogni fioritura, ricorda il successo di questo orologio. Un segnatempo che, dal suo lancio, continua a sedurre tutte le generazioni.

(On-screen text: Why did you create the Happy Sport watch?)

When I invented the Happy Sport, it was mostly because I was doing a lot of sports. That's why the name Sport is there. At Chopard we had the St. Moritz, which was a cool sporty watch. But for me, there was this sort of... sparkle missing, I really wanted something with a bit of sparkle that you could wear for 24 hours, meaning you can go swimming, waterskiing, play tennis, go shopping, take the kids to school, go to the office. And if you have no time, you're dressed because you have little diamonds running around in the cocktail. So, that, for me, was the free spirit, because today's women are always busy doing something, whether it's taking care of six kids or charitable work, whether it’s travelling or working. And this watch is just perfect for it.
