So here is a real diving watch for women. It possesses all the attributes of an underwater timepiece while remaining very chic with its famous mobile diamonds that move freely on the dial.
This Chopard Happy Ocean watch features a 40 mm steel case, water-resistant to 300 meters, accommodating an automatic mechanical caliber “three date hands” displaying a very comfortable power reserve of 60 hours.
The navy blue dial is associated with a two-color rotating bezel (two versions available) unidirectional with wave-like notches, for optimum grip underwater. It obviously serves to calculate the diving times but can also measure “on land”, durations less than one hour.
Indexes and hands illuminate in different colors in immersion -vert for the indications required during a dive, blue for the others. Note that this Happy Ocean inaugurates a bracelet Nato (of military origin), a first in the women’s collections of Chopard!
Chopard continues to be creating beautiful watches because it began in 1860, however it didn’t have its very own manufacture until 1996. Between now and then, it’s been creating for time lost, producing some great in-house movements-as well as in celebration from the 20-year anniversary of their manufacture, the company went full-scale using the discharge of the Chopard L.U.C Full Strike.
The Entire Strike may be the first minute repeater produced through the brand (although 2010’s L.U.C. Strike One chimed every striking hour) and based on Chopard, it required six many years to develop and make on your own. Searching in the watch at length, it’s easy to determine why it required that lengthy. The movement strikes the hrs, quarters and minutes-however the interesting part may be the transparent very gongs which the seem is created, that are machined along with the watch glass from one azure block. It makes sense a loudspeaker effect whenever the gongs are hit, producing a pure, resonating tone on every strike.
However this isn’t the only real technical innovation from the watch. The calibre 08.01-L was created in the ground-up to become perfectly fit for purpose. It’s been built with numerous home security systems to prevent any harm to the fragile movement by incorrect handling, and also the setting from the watch continues to be simplified: turning the crown one of the ways winds the moment repeater, and turning it another way winds the striking mechanics. The movement features two barrels, so the minute repeater features its own source of energy, and doesn’t effect the precision of times keeping mechanism-the twin power reserve indicator is visible at 2 o’clock.
The dial features an openworked design, revealing the astounding movement that required a lot of many years to create. The situation measures 42.5mm by 11.5mm in rose gold, and it has superbly classic proportions. There will only be 20 of those pieces readily available for purchase, making the Chopard L.U.C Full Strike one special bithday present.
