The seductively feminine and glamorous yet technical Happy Sport watch collection takes the plunge into the azure waters of the South Seas. Bedecked in blue-grey livery with waves rippling across it, the aptly named Happy Ocean asserts its vocation as an ultra-chic sports watch. Beating at the heart of the 40 mm case and water-resistant to 300 metres is the Chopard 01.01-C movement with automatic winding, while the dial is graced with the Happy Sport collections’ famous dancing diamonds.
Nautical by nature
Behind its glamorous allure expressed through ethical gold and steel, Happy Ocean conceals authentic underwater capabilities. As expected from diver’s watches, it is equipped with a blue-grey unidirectional rotating bezel bearing a luminescent marker. The gold-rimmed hour-markers on the dial are also luminescent, as are the wide hands. Finally, the screw-down crown in 18-carat rose gold contributes to the 300-metre water-resistance of the case.
The grey-blue dial with waves rippling across it – creating a matt on bright blue effect – is matched by the bezel and the calfskin leather strap. Reflecting the hues of the South Seas, this pervasive colour theme is further enhanced by the twirling of five dancing diamonds, resembling small bubbles rising to the surface or sparkling fish gliding across the dial’s distinctive wave motif. This aquatic ballet is orchestrated by a movement with automatic winding, the 01.01-C calibre, entirely developed and produced in the Maison’s watchmaking workshops and ensuring a generous 60-hour power reserve. The watch is also available on a blue-grey NATO strap.
