Chopard the Happy Sport medium Automatic Collection


The Chopard icon celebrates its 20th anniversary
with a mechanical movement

For 20 years, the Happy Sport watches by Chopard have been appealing to devotees of contemporary, daring, and subtly unconventional timepieces. To mark this jubilee year, the iconic collection welcomes a mechanical interpretation in the shape of the new Happy Sport Medium Automatic.

It was in 1993 that Caroline Scheufele created one of the Chopard icons, the Happy Sport watch. Repeatedly interpreted over the years in occasionally humorous and consistently elegant ways, it has lived under various highly evocative identities: Happy Beach, La Vie en Rose, Happy Spirit, Mystery Pink…

Now, in celebrating the finest anniversary of its diamonds moving freely just a few millimetres above exquisite watch dials, Chopard unveils the new Happy Sport Medium Automatic. The famous moving diamonds – one of the most fascinating jewellery innovations in recent decades – adds an unprecedented mechanical dimension to their entrancing natural charm.

Moving diamonds meet a mechanical movement
Elegant, sophisticated and entirely loyal to the spirit of the original Happy Sport, the new Happy Sport Medium Automatic reveals a guilloché silver-toned dial, a tribute to the decorative traditions of classical watchmaking and a perfect backdrop against which to highlight the seven moving diamonds. On the back, a sapphire crystal provides a chance to admire its mechanical self-winding movement adorned with a straight Côtes de Genève motif also known as Geneva stripes. Its 36 mm-diameter steel or 18ct rose gold case is water-resistant to 30 metres and fitted with an alligator leather strap or an 18ct rose gold bracelet.
