The iconic Swiss watch brand Chopard has introduced a new interpretation of the Imperial collection, a jewel of a watch called theImperiale 36mm Joaillerie.
The very feminine Imperiale 36mm Joaillerie is a self winding model, with design references to a bygone regal era. The dial appears adorned with magnificently shimmering Tahiti mother-of-pearl and is punctuated by Roman numerals. The curved hands are reminiscent of the tapered daggers used by sovereigns in battle. The besel and the lug-covers are entirely set with diamonds. The shape of the lugs reflects the tradition of ancient columns famed for their perfectly balanced proportions. Finally, a diamond-set crown delicately curved like a lotus flower is fitted on the case middle with its sleek sides designed to give the model a lighter touch and an even more lustrous glow.
The fascinating dial reflections, together with the radiance of diamonds, create a luminous harmony to which a subtle silver-toned brushed canvas strap sets the perfect crowning touch.
