A sculpted gold bracelet
The light also plays brilliantly across the tree bark-style bracelet featuring a texture, silky touch and impeccable comfort stemming from unique expertise. Reflecting the plant world, its extremely fine veins lend a special vibrancy to the bracelet, thanks to a close-knit weave giving the ethical 18-carat white gold an incomparably supple and light feel. It follows the curve of the wrist without ever snagging on the fabric of the wearer’s sleeve. This entirely hand-crafted goldwork technique was developed by the Scheufele family in the 1960s. It epitomises the pinnacle of mental and manual brilliance displayed in this jewellery watch, the result of ancestral watchmaking and jewellery skills. This model is also available with a leather strap.

A natural-born classic
With L’Heure du Diamant, all the elements contributing to the virtuoso construction of an artwork – encompassing artistic, technical, symbolic, artisanal and heritage dimensions – converge to perfection. Chopard once again demonstrates this wide-ranging prowess through a jewellery watch featuring modern lines and proportions testifying to the extraordinary vitality of its workshops. The cushion-shaped case with its curved sides endows this new creation with an undeniable sense of grandeur which combines with the unique bark-textured strap to revive the inimitable spirit of 1960s glamour, while embedding it firmly in contemporary aesthetic codes.

The absolute purity of the diamond is majestically highlighted by the collection’s emblematic crown setting technique, which exalts the beauty of each of the gems by allowing the light to shine through. This ribbon of diamonds encircling the case lights up a delicate mother-of-pearl dial – itself dotted with 12 diamond hour-markers. Mother-of-pearl with its shimmering reflections provides an extraordinarily vivid mineral echo of the diamond mantle adorning the watch.
