When is a dive watch not a dive watch? Chopard's Happy Ocean has all of the technical requirements to explore the underwater world, but its Happy Diamonds obscure part of the dial, preventing certification. It's water resistant to 300 meters; to put that into perspective, recreational divers are certified to reach depths of 30 meters, or 100 ft. The 40mm case holds a self-winding movement with 60-hour power reserve, unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-locked crown and luminous hands, hour markers and diving indications. Even non-divers will appreciate its beautiful deep blue dial that recalls the ocean and pink strap that represents coral.

Complications prove no hindrance to Chopard, but rather characterize its craftsmanship as the brand has sought to perfect watchmaking since its establishment in 1996. Its flying tourbillon movement has been awarded a patent due to the meticulous precision that it possesses; the mechanism functioning to automatically bring the second hand to a halt when the crown is pulled out for time-setting.This improved accuracy achieved in the very smallest fragment of time is just one example of Chopard's fixation with precision. Evidenced by its array of exceptional watches, collections such as the Métiers d'art, epitomize the finest of horological craftsmanship and artistry. Personified by layered fragments, the plants, birds and polar bears found on these timepieces pay tribute to the beauty of nature.The Poinçon de Genève collection further infuses longstanding, independent standards of watchmaking into contemporary design to guarantee quality, and the limited-edition L.U.C Full Strike Sapphire watch unveiled by Chopard in 2022 equally flaunts excellence through modern design. Boasting a sapphire case and bridge to the minute repeater, this watch not only ticks with timely melody but is complexly composed of a 533-part movement.
