It is the holiday season once again. What is a better way to show your love than to give a special gift to your loved one? A watch is probably one of the most practical yet sentimental presents that will be appreciated by almost anyone.
Although a watch’s main purpose is to give the time, wearing an expensive watch makes the wearer feel more special. Plus, durable and luxurious watches will never be thrown away; instead, the wearer will always remember the gift-giver whenever he or she glances at the time.
As in all gifts, watches are usually given to match the personality of the recipient. With this in mind, you will never go wrong with Chopard watches. Let us explore what is available in the market.
For Special Ladies Who Love Diamonds
One of the signature marks of Chopard watches is their diamonds. What makes the Happy Diamonds model a favorite among women is its floating diamonds. This timepiece is either automatic, quartz, or self-winding. While most models are made of stainless steel, the water-resistance varies from 30 to 300 meters.
If your loved one is a movie fan, she will appreciate the Cannes 2018 limited edition. Once an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard created this exquisite design with mother-of-pearl dials and hour-makers made of yellow gold. The 36mm diameter watch is suitable for most women’s wrists.
For Sporty Men and Women
In 1993, Chopard released the sportier version of Happy Diamonds – the Happy Sport model. Also created for ladies, this was the brand’s first steel watch with dancing diamonds. They are available in stainless steel as well as rose or white gold. There are also two-tone designs.
What makes Happy Sport different from the Happy Diamonds model is that its diamonds can move around the dial’s entire surface. With Happy Diamonds, however, the diamonds only move around its dial’s outer edges.
If you think of giving this as a gift for men, Chopard has unisex designs. Typically, these have black dials and automatic movements that are visible at the back of the watch. All models have Roman numerals as hour markers.
For Car-Racing Enthusiasts
Chopard was founded by the legendary Swiss watchmaker Louis-Ulysse Chopard. Eventually, the brand was sold to the parents of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele. Because of Karl’s interest in motor racing, the Classic Racing watch was designed. It was inspired by the image of a cockpit in racing cars. Although sold as a unisex watch, this model is especially popular among men who are into fast motorsports. Its timepieces are water-resistant for up to 100 meters. Its power reserve indicator lasts up to 46 hours.
For Watch Collectors and “Spy Movie” Fans
This watch was inspired by the Mille Miglia car races, a long-running race from Brescia to Rome. Chopard’s owner Karl-Friedrich Scheufele completed the races with his father back in 1987. The following year, the Mille Miglia watch was released as the official timekeeper of the race.
This rugged self-winding watch is either self-winding or automatic and is made of stainless steel. Stronger than the Classic Racer watch, its power reserves last for up to 60 hours. Ryan Reynolds wore the Mille Miglia GTS Power Control Grigio Speziale in his Netflix movie “6 Underground.” So, this timepiece is a perfect gift for those who favor spy movies.
For Those Who Love Horology
If your recipient has expressed an interest in horology, why not give the LUC watch? Named after the Chopard founder Louis-Ulysse Chopard, this timepiece is known as the best in Swiss horology.
All LUC watches have the FQF (Fleurier Quality Foundation) seal, which is proof of having passed stringent testing:
- COSC certification that tests the chronometers of Swiss watches
- Chronofiable test that evaluates the durability
- Fleuritest simulates human movements to check for any changes impacting the watches’ time.
They also have the Geneva seal certifying that the wrist watch’s movements were tested in Geneva, Switzerland.
LUC watches are very popular among Hollywood celebrities like Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender, who recently wore these watches to the Academy Awards.
For Regal Ladies
If you look at Imperiale watches, you will notice its “imperial monarch” design – Roman-styled hour markers, Arabesque motif, and sword-shaped hands. This timepiece is made of stainless steel, making it resistant to corrosion. Moreover, it is water-resistant for up to 50 meters and scratch-resistant.
Despite its durability and strength, the Imperiale watch still appears very feminine. With its latest releases, the power reserve lasts for up to 216 hours without winding. Therefore, if your loved one loves the sparkle of precious stones, pearls, and diamonds, the Imperiale will surely win her heart. Choose from among any of these models. There is at least one that matches your recipient’s preferences. Remember to look for the Geneva seal to ensure that you are getting top quality.
