HAPPY SNOWFLAKES

36 MM, AUTOMATIC, WHITE GOLD, DIAMONDS

Ref. Number:
274891-1014
  • Happy Snowflakes celebrates the magic of winter. Like the snow globes of our childhood, this utterly poetic timepiece offers a touch of eternity to the ephemeral crystals fallen from the sky. An illusion perfectly mastered thanks to the expertise of several craftsmen, combined with hig- quality materials. The mother-of-pearl of the dial comes from shells carefully selected by Chopard. Hues, iridescent effects, textures: each characteristic is studied in order to create a naturally brilliant and luminous decoration offering the most faithful possible depiction of reality. Highly skilled in the art of mother-of-pearl marquetry, the dial-maker has succeeded in tracing extremely fine snowflakes on this fragile surface, while others appear on the sapphire crystal well as on the sides of the case. Engraved by hand, they create a striking effect, as if real snow crystals were landing on the watch for a moment before vanishing.... Embellished with a special snow setting, the bezel glows with dazzling radiance, like snow sparkling the sunlight. Using his instinct and expertise, the gemsetter individually carved out each of the cavities in the gold in order to accommodate the stones that were then individually adjusted as the work progressed. The sparkling illusion is also accentuated by the diamonds dancing around on the dial, accompanied by a whirling snowflake-shaped element.
