An exclusive 8-piece edition of the IMPERIALE Flying Tourbillion combines the Maison’s expertise in watchmaking and jewellery skills to create a timepiece that is truly a work of art. This watch is one of the only ones on the market that bears both the Chronometer-certification and the Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark. Created by Chopard’s artisans, the aventurine dial is ‘embroidered’ with a mother-of-pearl marquetry lotus blossom. Very few jewellery watches are equipped with self-winding movements”, notes Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele. “Those with a horological complication are even rarer. Our flying tourbillon timepieces are the only ones in this universe to guarantee COSC-certified precision and to be granted the prestigious Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.” This watch truly pushes the boundaries of high watchmaking.
