Over the Chopard Rainbow

Chopard takes cue from the rainbow in its latest Imperiale Joaillerie creation.

For Baselworld, Chopard stuns with an innovative creation out of sapphires. Taking inspiration from all the colours of the rainbow, the latest Imperiale Joaillerie is a sight to behold.This jewellery masterpiece is adorned in subtly graded shades covering the entire colour spectrum – from majestic purple (the emblematic colour of the Imperiale collection) to anise green through an entire galaxy of blues, reds and yellows – running through the thousand and one nuances composing this kaleidoscope of colours.

The 18ct rose gold watch is entirely covered with baguette-cut sapphires, making its dial, case and bracelet glisten like a thing from a fairy tale. The crown and lug-covers are adorned with amethysts. Behind the magnificent piece is 1,012 hours of work by experienced craftsmen, who were determined to bring the dreamy creation to life. Ticking steadily and secretly beneath this luminous mantle is the heart of a self-winding movement.
