Chopard L’Heure du Diamant
The iridescent mysteries of time, diamonds and opal.
The L’Heure du diamant collection of three watches testifies to the encounter between contemporary design and the opal with its manifold secrets.
It is worth recalling that, well before watches appeared in large sizes, they harboured the secrets of time on women’s wrists with the greatest discretion. They were first and foremost jewellery creations in which function was subservient to form. The Chopard L’Heure du diamant collection revives this sense of elegant nostalgia by borrowing its oval case, housing a quartz movement, from the 1970s style repertoire. A model with a small round case and mechanical automatic movement completes this L’Heure du diamant trilogy.

The three watches have a dial made of natural white Australian opal offering a rich spectrum of changing colours and lights. Since ancient times, Greek and Roman mythology have ascribed magical properties to this stone. Powerful and subtle, flamboyant and iridescent, opal fascinates by its distinctive luminosity that appears to breathe unique life into the stone. Its mobile nature, its changing colours and its elusive shimmer have led opal to be regarded as symbolising entirety, an emanation of sacredness…

On all three models, the bezel is entirely paved with brilliant-cut diamonds. The most precious oval version extends its diamond setting along the bracelet, enhanced by two larger diamonds placed at 6 and 12 o’clock on the bezel (30.1cts). The other two watches are fitted with an alligator leather strap.
