Chopard extends the Alpine Eagle collection
One year after the presentation of the iconic Chopard Alpine Eagle, the collection welcomes a new XL Chrono as well as two large versions and a small reference in steel and diamonds.
Alpine Eagle is a historical story that Chopard decided to recall in the modern days. It is actually a project that brought together three generations of the Scheufele family during the design and the development process. The result, continues to impress, being an iconic watch as image, details, precious materials and in-house movements.
One year since the new Collection is already spreading through the world, Chopard presents a flyback chronograph in a new 44 mm diameter case. The new chrono is available in three versions – Lucent Steel A223 with an Aletsch Blue or Pitch Black dial and a bi-material version combining Lucent Steel A223 and ethical rose gold with a Pitch Black dial. Four patents testifying to its accuracy and user-friendliness have been filed for the Chopard 03.05-C mechanical movement with automatic movement and flyback function. From movement to case and from dial to bracelet, Alpine Eagle XL Chrono timepieces are made entirely in Chopard’s watchmaking ateliers following the promise of high class in-house timepieces.
The second Alpine Eagle extension comes as two new models in a Large format made of 18-carat rose gold. The references are crafted from ethical 18-carat rose gold. The first version features a textured brass Aletsch Blue dial while the second, fitted with a Bernina Grey dial, is framed by a diamond-set bezel. Inside the case, the prestigious story continues with a 60-hour power reserve automatic movement – the Chopard 01.01-C calibre.
The third addition counts inside the range of Alpine Eagle Small timepieces. The new model comes with a case in Lucent Steel A223 with an Aletsch Blue dial and a diamond setting on the bezel. Like all Alpine Eagle timepieces, this new watch is equipped with an in-house automatic movement chronometer-certified by the COSC: the Chopard 09.01-C calibre, offering a 42-hour power reserve.
