Chopard celebrates 150th Anniversary with special Animal World Collection
2010: How about having some cheeky animals on your wrist? For its 150th anniversary, Chopard has introduced an Haute Joaillerie collection on the theme of animals. This anniversary edition comprises 15 watches featuring an original design in the twin fields of fine jewellery and watchmaking.
The timepieces in the Haute Joaillerie Animal World Collection humorously illustrate a variety of animals. Monkeys, polar bears and penguins are portrayed in vividly depicted scenes.
The irresistibly mischievous mango-stealing macaque monkey appears to be actually moving as he hangs from a creeper preparing to pounce on other fruits, cleverly represented by moving brilliants. In another creation, a polar bear plays on frozen dial. Three moving diamonds symbolise the crystalline sparkle of ice in the sunshine. The Antarctic penguins timepiece is as fantastic as the others. Probably awaiting their turn to go hunting, each of the web-footed creatures adorning the mother-of-pearl dial is shown in a different stance. A sprinkling of moving diamonds lends extra radiance to the spectacle.
