Chopard: ImperialeJoaillerie Inspired by Inca civilization

A watch that looks like a beautiful bracelet fit to adorn a royal wrist. That's what the new Impriale Joillerie from Chopard is all about. It's the new interpretation of the classic watch synonymous with splendour, power and extreme passion.

After the Coffret de l’Impératrice, launched in September 2015 and celebrating Byzance and the magic of the East, Chopard draws inspiration for its latest creation from South America and the heart of the Inca civilisation.

The watchmaker-jeweller has offered a secret watch that is as much a magnificent bracelet as a precious timepiece. Like a mosaic from the pre-Colombian era, the dial cover is entirely set with brilliant-cut diamonds and turquoises in subtly varied shades. Its hypnotic radiance exudes an aura of mystery and seduction.

When the dial finally opens, the signature symbols of the Imperiale collection appear, those precious details, legendary distinction and strength of character. It shows graceful Roman numerals, motif evoking the embroideries adorning the hangings and cushions on which monarchs placed their insignia. The stunning watch is set with diamonds and the dial centre is stamped with a radiant sunburst guilloché decoration in a nod to the Inca dynasty’s fascination for this supreme heavenly body.

The precious timepiece is fitted with blue or turquoise damask straps picking up the unmistakable Imperiale motif or with turquoise alligator straps. The case in Fairmined 18-carat white gold is entirely set with diamonds and houses a veritable treasure: a self-winding L.U.C 96.12-L movement entirely designed, developed and hand-decorated in the Chopard Manufacture workshops in Fleurier. Imperiale, or when jewellery perfection meets watchmaking excellence.
