Chopard is gearing up for the upcoming Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève with no fewer than four timepieces in the competition. 

Known for their exquisite craftsmanship and timeless designs, Chopard’s watches are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.

First up is the Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF (Sports Category) boasting precision, style and sporty-chic. Featuring a Pitch Black dial with subtle orange accents, this titanium masterpiece houses one of Chopard’s most advanced movements, equipped with a high-frequency escapement that reaches its cruising altitude at 57,600 vibrations per hour (8 Hz).

Next in line is the L.U.C 1860 (Iconic Category), a unique, sophisticated watch and tribute to the emblematic L.U.C heritage. Inspired by a vintage Chopard design, this timepiece features a guilloché dial in salmon-coloured solid gold, a case in Lucent Steel™ – Chopard’s exclusive steel composed of at least 80% recycled material – as well as a finely crafted chronometer-certified movement, making it a true collector’s item.

For those seeking a touch of daring, the Pure Happiness jewellery watch (Jewellery Category) is a must-see. Exuding femininity and refinement, this eye-catching Haute Joaillerie creation gracefully combines heart shapes with Chopard’s iconic dancing diamonds.

The final timepiece in this impressive line-up, the IMPERIALE Jumping Hour (Ladies’ Complication Category) is a horological masterpiece that pushes the boundaries of watchmaking. With an Urushi lacquer dial graced with a central rotating flower subtly indicating the minutes, the watch is powered by Chopard’s innovative jumping-hour calibre – itself entirely decorated with hand-painted engravings.

The 23rd Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awards ceremony will take place at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva on Thursday, 9th of November 2023.
