The embodiment of Chopard’s historical jewellery watch expertise– L’Heure du Diamant
With L’Heure du Diamant, Chopard captures the beauty of diamonds. Thanks to historical expertise cultivated since the 1960s, its workshops orchestrate an encounter between the queen of precious stones and contemporary design. The collection stemming from this genius now welcomes a timepiece shaped like the Maison’s cherished heart symbol and graced with a pink mother-of-pearl dial featuring refined guilloché work.
A heart-themed jewellery watch
With L’Heure du Diamant, the Artisans of the Maison demonstrate their equal mastery of watchmaking and jewellery expertise. These twin skills have been nurtured for several decades by the Scheufele family, renowned since the mid-20th century for its technical feats in the realm of jewellery watches – as is once again demonstrated by the new timepiece joining this collection. Crafted in ethical 18-carat rose gold, it pairs a heart-shaped hand-guilloché pink mother-of-pearl dial with a bezel entirely paved with brilliant-cut diamonds enhanced by the sophisticated crown setting, as well as a burgundy leather strap. After round and oval interpretations, L’Heure du Diamant timepiece now honours the symbol of love to which Chopard – nicknamed the “Big-Hearted Maison” – remains firmly attached throughout its creative process.
L’Heure du Diamant collections
Before watches came to adopt large sizes, timepieces housed the secret of time on women’s wrists with the utmost discretion. Above all, they were an element of adornment in their own right, a flamboyant jewel whose function was subordinate to form. And the Scheufele family currently at the head of Maison Chopard built its reputation on its perfectly crafted jewellery watches. L’Heure du diamant collection revives this elegant hint of nostalgia, drawing style cues for its richly gemset cases from those intensively creative past decades. From fashion to watchmaking, this abiding source of inspiration pays tribute to the timeless nature of femininity through its feather-light, snugly-fitted proportions.
