Chopard launched its Alpine Eagle luxury sports watch in 2019, building on its sporty-chic but very dated 1980 St. Moritz watch. Available in a variety of complications, sizes and materials, the model chosen for the Japanese market is the 41mm Stainless Steel Time and Date.
Sharing specifications with other 41mm chronograph and date Alpine Eagle models, the novelty here is the attractive matte black dial with the typical striped pattern reminiscent of the iris of an eagle’s eye. To underpin the dial’s dark, almost lava-like atmosphere, the applied Roman numerals, hour markers and hands are also gloss black and enhanced with Cool Gray Super-LumiNova, giving them a stone-like appearance. The effect is attractive and somewhat rough compared to other Alpine Eagle dials. The arrowhead seconds hand with eagle feather weight is also black. As mentioned, the date window has been eliminated, allowing the texture of the dial to prevail.
In keeping with the brand’s commitment to sustainable luxury, the watch and integrated bracelet are crafted from Chopard’s proprietary Lucent steel. Developed with partner Voestalpine Böhler, the alloy is 50% more wear-resistant, harder (223 Vickers) and reflective and luminous (lucent) than conventional steel alloys, and is made of 80% recycled material. Like all Alpine Eagles, the tonneau-shaped case and circular bezel with eight alignment screws are finished with vertical brushed surfaces and polished bevels. The case is 9.7 mm thick, with a screw-down crown ensuring water resistance to 100 meters, protected by a crown guard and engraved with a compass. <p>best luxury watches</p>
