Chopard watches are the perfect combination of classic watchmaking craftsmanship and high-end jewelry. Watches of the Swiss manufacturer that feature exquisite internal calibers. Some of them have complicated features such as Perpetual Calendar, Minute Repeater, Tourbillon. Meanwhile, Chopard watches blur the line between watch and jewelry. Many are made of gold or platinum and decorated with diamonds.
The women's Happy Sport and Happy Diamonds collections have some unique features in particular. Diamonds cannot help but attract attention as they dance around the dial. On the other hand, the watches in the Imperiale and La Strada collections are more classic and feminine. These watches pair beautifully with evening wear as well as business attire.
Chopard's company history began in 1860 when 24-year-old watchmaker Louis-Ulysse Chopard began producing and selling watches under the name “L.U.C” in the small Swiss village of Sonvilier. The brand quickly rose to fame with the addition of Tsar Nicholas. II and Swiss Federal Railways enter customer base
Chopard's son, Paul-Louis Chopard, took over the company after Louis-Ulysse's death in 1915 and moved it to Chaux-de-Fonds. The next move followed only a few years later, this time Chopard setting up shop in Geneva to meet the criteria of the Geneva brand.
Louis-Ulysse's grandson, Paul-André, inherited the company in 1943. Twenty years later, he was forced to sell the company because none of his sons wanted to take over the family business. He ended up accepting a bid from watchmaker and jeweler Karl Scheufele III of Pforzheim, Germany. Before the purchase, Scheufele had been selling watches under the “Eszeha” brand and wanted to free himself from reliance on ébauche mechanical suppliers.
