Aficionados of high-end mechanical watches will find it curious but the Chopard Happy Diamonds is one of the best selling ladies watches ever. The floating diamonds that are its signature have now been sprinkled into a diver’s watch for ladies that makes its debut Baselworld 2017.
The Happy Ocean is a 40mm, stainless steel diver that’s hard to take seriously at first glance but is nonetheless rated to 300m and equipped with Chopard’s in-house calibre 01.01-C.
Produced in the Fleurier factory that also makes Chopard’s top of the line L.U.C movements as well as the Ferdinand Berthoud chain and fusee tourbillon, the 01.01-C is automatic with a 60-hour power reserve.
The dial has a generic dive watch style, with five free floating diamonds above it. The stones sit in between two sapphire crystals, one just above the dial and the other a conventional crystal on the outside.
Available with red or green accents on the bezel, the Happy Ocean is delivered on a fabric NATO-style strap.
Price and availability
The Happy Ocean is priced at SFr8200 (about US$8230) and will be available starting July 2017.
