The mesmerizing, fascinating Imperiale Joaillerie by Chopard decked out in rainbow colours immediately draws all eyes to it. 581 sapphires, more than 1,000 hours of work to select, cut, sort and set stones totalling 47.98 carats.
This jewellery masterpiece is adorned in subtly graded shades covering the entire colour spectrum – from majestic purple (the emblematic colour of the Imperiale collection) to anise green through an entire galaxy of blues, reds and yellows – running through the thousand and one nuances composing this kaleidoscope of colours. These chromatic variations create a firework-like burst, a dazzling and ever-renewed sight that catches and holds the gaze.
The crown and lug-covers are adorned with amethysts. The selection, cutting, sorting and setting of the stones called for exceptional expertise and herculean efforts on the part of the Chopard artisans who lavished 1,012 hours on these operations alone. Just like in the finest fairytales, the watch appears to be attired in an haute couture dress reflecting all the colours of the rainbow and forming an exquisitely delicate ‘fabric’.
Inside beats a self winding heart: Entirely developed and produced in the workshops of Fleurier Ebauches, the Chopard 01.03-C calibre powering the Imperiale Joaillerie beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hertz) and has a barrel ensuring an excellent 60-hour power reserve. Chopard Calibre 01.03-C shines in all its luminous, multi-coloured splendour through an exhibition case-back.
