Originally known for its women’s watches, privately owned Swiss luxury watch manufacture Chopard has branched out significantly since it was founded in 1860. As well as men’s and women’s timepieces, today the brand produces high jewellery, engagement rings and range of accessories that includes pens, leather bags and clocks. All Chopard movements are certified with the Geneva Seal, an exclusive mark of craftsmanship conferred upon watch movements made within the Canton of Geneva, and the company is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, speaking to its vigorous commitment to corporate social responsibility. The influential Scheufele family runs Chopard, as it has since 1963.
