  • Catalogue Essay

    The Happy Diamonds collection enables the diamonds to move freely between two glazed sapphire crystals. The present watch weighing approximately 16 carats in total, is adorned with brilliant-cut diamonds and is fitted with seven free floating diamond collets that swirl playfully around the dial. These unpredictable movements maximise the sparkles and provides fascination.

    Offered in excellent overall condition, the present watch adds a sparkle to any woman’s fine collection of watches.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1860

    At the age of 24, Louis-Ulysse Chopard started his company L.U.C. Chopard in Sonviller, Switzerland. Since the brand's inception in 1860, Chopard understood the need for thin and accurate pocket watches to be functional for daily wear. The brand gained world recognition in 1912 after Tsar Nicolas II became a client.

    Following Louis-Ulysse's death in 1915, his sons Paul-Louis and Paul André took over the business and moved their headquarters to La Chaux-de-Fonds. In 1963, the company was taken over by Karl Scheufele, who remains the brand's owner. Arguably Chopard's most recognizable design, the "Happy" line, was inspired by Scheufele's daughter Caroline. In 1996, his son Karl-Friedrich established Chopard as a manufacturer of its own range of in-house movements under the name L.U.C., creating groundbreaking, exquisitely finished watches that have earned the brand worldwide acclaim.
