With its pure, stylised silhouette, the IMPERIALE watch collection offers a contemporary interpretation of the great symbols of historical empires. The arabesque motifs drawn from the embroidery of the draperies on which monarchs placed their insignia, openwork sword-shaped hands, Roman hour-markers and a crown curved like a lotus flower all evoke a glorious heritage, while the shape of the lugs recalls the tradition of ancient columns famed for their perfectly balanced proportions. A tribute to modern achievers
Entirely designed and crafted in the House workshops, the Chopard 01.03-C caliber that drives the Imperiale Joaillerie beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4Hz) and features a barrel offering an excellent 60-hour power reserve. All these characteristics ensure reliability, performance and precision to this self-winding mechanical movement visible through an open case back.
