Chopard has long been known for its high jeweled masterpieces - especially the Happy Diamonds, where five diamonds dance in the space between the dial and crystal, freely floating as they whirl around with every movement of the wrist. Now, those diamonds take center stage on the new Haute Joaillerie watches for 2021. Embracing the beauty of nature, Chopard creates a flower using 20 marquis-cut blue sapphires, weighing more than 13 carats, as petals surrounding the center dial. Brilliantcut diamonds act as accents to the petals, and the center watch dial is further enhanced with diamonds. The watch is crafted using the brand's 18-karat ethical white gold and is finished with a blue satin strap.

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.
