Happy Sport, story of a watch icon Spotlight on 1993 when Chopard Co-President Caroline Scheufele effectively captured the spirit of the times in designing a sports watch based on an original association between the robustness of steel and the nobility of diamonds. Ensuring that each diamond in its spinning-top capsule is arranged in such a way that its dance is never hindered is technical feat that only a few choreography artisans are capable of achieving.
Thus embodying unprecedented daring, the Happy Sport was born, epitomising a noble legacy of sporty-chic style in an ever-changing choreography of dancing diamonds.
