Feminine and technical, playful and radical, precious and modern: through the sheer diversity of its qualities, the inimitable Chopard Happy Sport represents the quintessence of horological success. It was in 1993 that the world saw the birth of far more than just a watch—rather, a certain vision of independence, modernity, and free-spirited movement. The now-iconic 25-year-old Happy Sport instils its mischievous spirit into a supremely elegant model: an oval case housing a self-winding movement specially developed by the Chopard manufacture.Happy Sport Oval  - 275362-5001 + 275362-5002.jpg

The design of this new Happy Sport features a distinctive oval shape idealised through reinvented proportions. By redesigning the oval in accordance with its own aesthetic vision, the Happy Sport enlists a multicultural symbol of abundance and eternity. The oval, a place of withdrawal and of bursting forth, is the scene of endless possibilities where transformations encapsulating the future take shape. On the dial of the Happy Sport Oval, every second holds the promise of future joy.Happy Sport Oval  - 275362-5001.jpg

The Happy Sport appears in a version topped by an 18ct rose-gold bezel. Its alligator leather straps feature a choice of colours ranging from noble royal blue to ultra-chic deep navy blue. Dancing endlessly across the silver-toned guilloché dial are seven moving diamonds embodying the Happy Sport signature.

An even more precious and exquisitely feminine variation replaces the diamonds on the bezel with pink sapphires, framing seven moving gems—two diamonds, two pink sapphires, and three rubies—whirling across a dainty and supremely gentle mother-of-pearl dial. The final touch to this jewellery watch is set by a supremely elegant fuchsia-pink alligator leather strap.Happy Sport Oval  - 275362-5002.jpg

Chopard’s watchmaking expertise has enabled it to equip the Happy Sport Oval with a mechanical self-winding movement: the 09.01-C calibre specially developed for 30mm ladies’ watch cases. “Have it all and relinquish nothing,” is the motto entirely suited to the women who choose the Happy Sport Oval.
