Vivid colours and a vibrant personality! Because life is too short to be lived in monochrome, Chopard presented at Baselworld 2016 a Happy Sport model fitted with a strap you can change yourself, in step with your moods and the changing seasons. With the arrival of summer, bright new colours are further enlivening the new Happy Sport 36mm.
It has always been incredibly alluring: Happy Sport is a true style icon that has been playing the mix & match game since 1993, freely mixing genres, steel and diamonds, the timeless and the ephemeral. Its visionary, avant-garde designer Caroline Scheufele had imagined an extremely beautiful watch that was anything but formal. Precious, yet resolutely sporty. Conventions have never been its thing! This joyful, independent, mischievous and eminently modern timepiece makes light of codes and trends.
A pluralistic watch
A heritage of simplicity and a penchant for boundless fancies: here comes the new Happy Sport. In a spirit of do-it-yourself customisation, it offers women the possibility of changing the strap of their watch in the comfort of their home and whenever they feel like it. Matching, mismatching, energising, soothing, dreaming: anything goes.
Colour, the essential element in any wardrobe that varies according to the wearer’s mood, plays a key role in this watch with its steel case, infusing a fresh sense of energy with each new strap. The latter is made of rubber and serves as a reminder that mixing and matching materials lies at the very heart of the free-spirited and playful Happy Sport identity. Black and white, the enduring basics, are the two strap colours supplied with the watch.
As the seasons come and go, Chopard reveals new and ephemeral on-trend colours. For summer, sky blue, sea green and bright orange vie with each other to embrace the Happy Sport 36mm with its interchangeable strap system.
On the back of the strap, nestling against the skin, the Chopard mantra “Be Happy” inscription distils its message like a secret lucky charm.
But the very essence of the Happy Sport naturally lies in the famous moving diamonds, whirling between two sapphire crystals and free from any setting. In this interpretation of the concept, they perform their graceful dance against a classic yet contemporary smooth white dial backdrop.
