On 17th October 2018, Chopard celebrated its 25th Anniversary of the Iconic Happy Sport Collection in Singapore showcasing a spectacular retrospective collection comprising a total of 25 timepieces were presented in various modes of elegant display and showcases to all VIP guests and media present. Graced by the presence of Ms Caroline Scheufele, Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director, the celebration was held at The NCO Club at JW Marriott Singapore South Beach.
For its 25th anniversary, Happy Sport adopts the best of two worlds
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the collection enriched the repertoire of its stylistic versatility with the strength of a self-winding movement: the 09.01 C calibre specially developed for 30 mm feminine cases by Chopard Manufacture. Equipped with this movement, new interpretations are being introduced in 2018 with the Happy Sport Manufacture, featuring a dial combining the tender charm of textured mother-of-pearl with dainty pastel shades; as well as the Happy Sport Oval Automatic, which gives new life to the oval design of the Happy Sport in a revamped and incredibly contemporary version. This creation bears witness to Chopard’s ever more seamless integration of its two centres of excellence – the result of a unique combination of the myriad skills and expertise contributing to the grandeur of watchmaking and jewellery.
The combined talents of artisans at the peak of their craft thus give rise to fresh Happy Sport interpretations, notably featuring the ancestral art of Urushi lacquer for the dials and Fleurisanne engraving for the movements.
