Ole Ole…Ole Ole!
Me mind on fire — Me soul on fire — Feeling hot hot hot
Party people — All around me feeling hot hot hot
It’s that sizzling Summer time of year again and life is too short to live in monochrome.
Chopard believes that Summer should be in sparkling and radiant colours.
To wit: vivid colours, joie de vivre and a vibrant personality!
The Happy Sport is bewitching in new colours. Fitted with a strap that you can change yourself, in synch with your moods and the changing seasons, this sassy and tangy timepiece now comes in two sizes: 36 and 30 mm diameters, teamed with purple, bright pink and anise green straps.
Since 1993, Happy Sport has been about the mix & match play; mixing steel and diamonds, elegance and fun, the precious and sporty.
Be Different and Be Happy.
The new Happy Sport watches offers the possibility of changing the strap of their watch in the comfort of their home and whenever they feel like it.
Matching, mismatching, energising, soothing, dreaming: anything goes.
Further customisation is afforded by the choosing either a steel or two-tone rose gold and steel case in a 30- or 36 mm diameter.
Black and white colour rubber straps are supplied with the watch.
After that, you are on your own to be free-spirited with a plethora of colours. better still, let Chopard choose the colours for you….
This Summer, the on-trend tangy colours are purple, bright pink and anise green.
Chopard co-president Caroline Scheufele springs another surprise with loops of different colours from the fruity straps for extra ‘POP’!
The purple strap comes with a touch of green, the green one with a splash of pink, and the pink one with a hint of purple. On the back of each watch, the “Be Happy” inscription touches your (hopefully) tanned skin as a mantra or lucky charm for Always.
The famous dancing diamonds twirl freely between two sapphire crystal glass panes, always moving with the Happy spirit and even after its no longer Summer.
As reported previously on AlphaLuxe, you can also take it further with the juicy Happy Ocean mechanical watches for nautical or après dive fun and adventure.
