Shades of happiness

Injecting a dose of vibrancy at this year’s Baselworld, Chopard introduces the new Happy Sport timepiece

Behold a delightful vision upon your wrist with Chopard's icon of joy, the Happy Sport watch — a sister collection to the Happy Diamonds — that made a brilliant entrance at Baselworld 2016.

The embodiment of joie de vivre since 1993, the Happy Sport is Chopard's free-spirited haute horlogerie personality that instantly uplifts the mood with its trendsetting codes that combines sporty and sophistication. Envisioned by its designer Caroline Scheufele to be an unconventional beauty, this 36mm-sized signature effects the classic strength of steel in its casing, contrasted with the fresh youthfulness of a textured rubber bracelet. Ringed by a diamond-set bezel, the glorious elation of the Happy Sport is framed within its glittering sphere: The quintet of free-wheeling diamonds upon the dial.

Sparkling with happiness, the watch's unfailing cheer is further buoyed by vivid summer hued straps, available in three colours, that let you switch up the bracelet whenever the fancy strikes. Because there's nothing like interchangeable DIY customisation to infuse your Chopard Happy Sport with a touch of bespoke joy that puts a spring in your step.

The new Happy Sport 2016 is available at Chopard boutiques.
