In the small Swiss village of Sonvilier, a talented innovator named Louis-Ulysse Chopard began making pocket watches and chromometers of the very highest standard. It was this recognition for precision and attention to detail that soon gained him a reputation that now sits alongside the names of some of the world’s elite in the watchmaking industry. In 1985 the company expanded further and Louis-Ulysse handed the company down to his son, Paul-Louis. To this day. Chopard continue to build upon their expertise in fine Swiss watch manufacture. The team of artisan watchmakers that have become Chopard’s family, continue the success of the company’s future by building on their skills and strengthening those family-owned values that were there before. Chopard are not only the official timekeeper of Italy’s prestigious Mille Miglia races, but have been timekeepers for Swiss railways and have also been official timekeepers of the Grand Prix Monaco Historique for over 12 years.
As an official stockist of Chopard watches here at Berry’s, we are pleased to offer such beautifully engineered, stylish and practical timepieces. Each creation is Swiss engineered through-and-through. For over a century Chopard timepieces for ladies and gents have been a symbol of excellence, precision and reliability. They come in a variety of styles and designs for both the male and female wrist, and bear the proud “Chopard” lettering to the surface of each dial. With a mixture of designs in Arabic hour tracks and Roman indexes, choosing between a classic or a traditional watch is made simple. Designs from the gentleman’s range of Chopard L.U.C watches are varied and diverse, with some featuring ultra thin cases, and others equipped with multiple functions to serve those with an appetite for something slightly more technical.
The Chopard Happy Sports watch collection broke boundaries in the world of watchmaking. Expert artisans at Chopard combined the most precious of stones with a selection of their finest materials. Add to that, a beautifully engineered, in-house mechanical movement, and these watches combine all that is important in a luxury wristwatch – Swiss precision, glamour and reliability. Some of the creations from this line of ladies watches use 18ct rose gold bezels to suspend free floating diamonds underneath a sapphire crystal glass. Matching rose gold Roman numerals are often used to continue the beautiful colour tones through the design – a perfect accompaniment for a stunning mother of pearl dial, for example.
Chopard L.U.C watches are classic and sophisticated. The collection features Grand Complications, models from the Heritage collection and the likes of moonphase instruments and the tourbillon. A Chopard Perpetual Calendar watch is the perfect choice for those gentlemen who like their timepiece to keep track of their diary for them without worrying about having to manually adjust the date. These sophisticated timepieces have additional tools like the GMT version – a function that allows the gentleman to keep track of two timezones at one. With stunning designs like the satin brown dial encased by 18ct rose gold bezel, these timepieces will always remain at the height of elegance.
