The Happy Sport watch, one of the Chopard’s most iconic designs, was created by Caroline Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard, in 1993. Ever since, Happy Sport has grown into the brand’s most successful collection. Various creative interpretations have been launched over the years, including Happy Beach, Happy Spirit, Happy Stars… and now: Happy Texas.
Chopard ‘Happy Texas’ Limited Edition Timepiece is celebrating the opening of its first-ever boutique in the State of Texas, at River Oaks District in Houston.
Chopard has redesigned the famous Happy Sport watch with floating diamonds – one of the most fascinating jewelry and timepiece innovations in recent decades – to create a unique, limited edition timepiece that pays homage to the Lone Star State.
The new ‘Happy Texas’ Limited Edition features seven floating gems – three bright red rubies, three blue sapphires and one white star-shaped diamond – which whirl and twirl freely just above the exquisite watch dial. Emphasizing its exclusivity, only twenty-five numbered pieces of the Chopard ‘Happy Texas’ Limited Edition will be produced.
On the reverse side of the watch, the sapphire crystal is etched with a Texas star and provides a chance to admire the timepiece’s mechanical self-winding movement, adorned with a straight Côtes de Genève motif. The 36mm diameter steel case is water-resistant to 30 meters, and is engraved with the unique limited edition number. In line with the Red-White-Blue theme, the ‘Happy Texas’ Limited Edition comes with a selection of three different straps in three different materials. The watch and wristbands are presented in a luxurious wooden Chopard gift box, with a hand-engraved, commemorative plaque.
Chopard Boutique first store in the State of Texas is a 1,230 square foot retail location featuring wooden floors, plush carpets, wood paneling and various seating areas.
