Chopard’s Alpine Eagle sports watch collection, dedicated to the Swiss Alps and its eagle, one of its most fascinating animal species, introduces a new dial color for the 41mm collection. Like the latest additions to the Aletsch Blue, Bernina Grey and Absolute Black colorways, the new “Pine Green” is inspired by the natural colors that shape the beauty of alpine biomes.
The expressive tones are highlighted by the iconic texture featuring a radial pattern reminiscent of an eagle eye, creating a magnificent backdrop for rhodium- or gold-plated hour markers and hands enhanced by a luminous coating. The date between 4 and 5 o’clock is displayed on a colour-coordinated disc.
This Alpine Eagle watch is available in genuine Chopard Lucent Steel A223 or 18 karat rose gold. In keeping with the manufacturer’s ethical commitment, the brand claims its gold is ethically sourced and its Lucent Steel A223 is made from 70% recycled materials. In addition to its anti-allergic composition, this special steel has properties comparable to surgical steel, making it highly skin compatible. With its 223 Vickers hardness, this alloy is also 50% more wear resistant than conventional steel and has a unique hardness. The case is 9.7mm high and water resistant to 100 meters.
In this modern luxury sports watch we find the Chopard 01.01-C self-manufacturing movement, offering a 60-hour power reserve, a COSC chronometer certificate, a stop-seconds function and meticulous finishing, all brought to life by the display caseback.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these models will be donated to the Alpine Eagle Foundation, whose programs have already reintroduced the white-tailed eagle to the Lake Geneva region.
Following the trend towards smaller proportions, copy Chopard has launched five additional iterations with a new case diameter of 33 mm. They are also available in Lucent Steel A223 and the brand’s Lucent Steel A223 in ethical 18-karat rose gold as well as two-tone combination and diamond-set bezel options.
The smaller case is 7.95 mm thick, water-resistant to 50 meters, and powered by the Chopard 09.01-C self-winding movement at 25,200 vibrations per hour (3.5 Hz). With a 42-hour power reserve, the movement is also equipped with a stop-seconds function for accurate time setting and has a COSC Observatory certificate for its accuracy.
