Time on a mother-of-pearl backdrop
Loyal to the collection’s aesthetics, the new IMPERIALE self-winding timepiece is reinvented in a soft green interpretation whose subtle shades echo nature in bud and bloom, easy on the eye and delightfully elegant on the wrist. The dial of this new IMPERIALE is adorned with textured mother-of-pearl.
The softness of this exceptional material provides infinite nuances, drawn from the heart of shells harbouring their precious expressions. Its silky iridescence, its rarity and the singularity of its naturally wavy motif, endows each of these timepieces with unique character.A veritable heart of light framed by a 36 mm case with a daintily diamond-set bezel.
Likewise, the bezel, lug-covers, cabochons and crown are adorned with a generous diamond setting that accentuates the precious nature of this watch fitted with a glossy green leather strap.

A star-studded sky extends its hold on the IMPERIALE collection, as the new 36 mm-diameter IMPERIALE Moonphase timepiece appears crafted from ethical 18-carat white gold studded with precious stones.
The dial of this technically refined and supremely feminine jewellery model is entirely made of aventurine. Naturally sprinkled with stars, this delicately spangled glass is graced with the five main northern hemisphere constellations.
Together, they serve as a backdrop for the most feminine watchmaking complication of them all: an astronomical moon-phase display, orchestrated by the Chopard 96.25-C movement. Thus attired in deep blue and lit up by the fire of diamonds, IMPERIALE Moonphase offers a delicately shimmering interpretation of the lunar cycles.
The moon-phase display
Its moon-phase display offers astronomical accuracy, reducing the precision error in the duration between two successive new moons (known as a lunation) to just 57.2 seconds, and hence taking 122 years to accumulate a mere one-day difference between the measured and actual lunar cycle.
It betokens the resolutely horological care that Chopard devotes to the creation of its timepieces endowed with complications.
