Inspired By South American And Inca Civilizations Chopard Launches New Imperiale Joaillerie Watch

As synonymous with glory and totalitarianism, each era and empires around the world are an inexhaustible source of Chopard’s creativity. Following the launch of the Coffret de l’Impératrice watch in September 2015, paying tribute to Byzantine and Eastern magic, Chopard has drawn inspiration from South America and Inca civilization to launch the new Imperiale Joaillerie watch (model: 384628-1001), giving the brand a new classic series Interpretation.

   Chopard maker Chopard has launched a secret timepiece that is both a gorgeous bracelet and a precious watch. The cover is paved with brilliant-cut diamonds and turquoise, with subtle tones, like a pre-Columbian mosaic. Opening the cover, the signature features of the Imperiale series are reflected in the face: Roman numerals and tapered hands shaped like combat daggers. The unique pattern is reminiscent of the embroidery process of decorative tapestry and padding. This pattern appears not only on the cover mosaic, but also on the diamond-set lugs and the dial small dial. The sunburst engraved with sunburst ornamentation in the center of the dial symbolizes the worship of the Sun by the Inca dynasty.

Equipped with LUC 96.12-L self-winding movement with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations / hour (4 Hz) and a 65-hour power reserve. This movement is completely designed, developed and hand-finished by the Chopard Watchmaking Factory in Fleurier . This watch comes with a blue / turquoise brocade strap or a turquoise alligator leather strap.
