AN EASY TO READ, STYLISH GREEN DIAL
Chopard presents a brand new color on the dial of the watches in the Alpine Eagle collection: like Aletsch Blue, Bernina Gray or Absolute Black, “Pine Green” is inspired by the palette of natural colors that characterize the beauty of the Alpine biotope.
It is reminiscent of the forests that cover the mountains when, on summer days, the melting snow gives way to a deep grey-green cover of vegetation. For this edition dedicated specifically to the Middle East, the workshops naturally chose this shade of the dial as a base, in homage to the color green, which is particularly prevalent in Arabic culture.
On this textured dial, with its radiant pattern reminiscent of an eagle’s eye, the time is indicated by four indexes in Urdu numerals arranged around the center of the dial and hands reinforced with Grade X1 Super-LumiNova® to ensure optimal visibility even in the dark .
Positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock, the date, also in Urdu numerals, is clearly displayed on a green disc that matches the dial for perfect discretion and harmony.
Since the launch of the collection in 2019, Alpine Eagle has been characterized by the choice of materials whose origins aim to promote sustainable luxury.
The large 41 mm diameter case of this new Alpine Eagle model is therefore made entirely of Lucent Steel A223. In line with the ethical approach to which the Manufacture is committed, this exclusive Chopard metal is made from 70 percent recycled material.
Thanks to its anti-allergenic composition, it has comparable properties to surgical steel and is therefore very dermo-friendly. With a resistance of 223 Vickers, this alloy is 50 percent more abrasion resistant than conventional steels and has a unique hardness.
Finally, thanks to a crystal structure with superior homogeneity, its purity allows unique shimmering light effects.
In keeping with the Manufacture’s commitment to certified precision, the Chopard 01.01-C automatic movement, at the heart of Alpine Eagle watches and visible through a transparent sapphire crystal case back, is developed in their own watchmaking workshops and certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.
The word “Chronometer” on the dial evokes this label of precision and excellence.
When fully wound, the mechanism has a power reserve of 60 hours. Constantly striving to meet the highest standards of precision, the watchmakers have also equipped this movement with a stop-seconds function that allows the user to set the time to the second.
THE ALPINE EAGLE COLLECTION
Designed by three generations of men from the Scheufele family, the Alpine Eagle collection is a modern reinterpretation of the St. Moritz, the first watch creation of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele (now Co-President of Chopard) in the late 1970s.
With its pure and confident design, Alpine Eagle enriches this heritage with powerful natural inspiration. Alpine Eagle is a sign of refined and resolutely contemporary elegance, characterized by a round case with stylized raised sides, a crown engraved with the compass rose, a bezel with eight functional index screws, a textured dial with deep tones and luminous indicators, and an integrated metal bracelet.
Thanks to its independence and the integration of its different trades, Chopard carries out all the production and assembly steps of the collection in its own watchmaking workshops, from the movement to the bracelet and including the components and case.
