Alongside five legendary Happy Diamonds, a dancing golf club and golf ball in white ethical gold twirl on its frosted dial! The sophisticated yet resolutely sporty Happy Sport Golf Edition radiates an aura of unaffected chic, as a stylishly rolled-up shirt sleeve reveals a radiant 36 mm timepiece in steel and ethical 18-carat rose gold, graced with a polished or diamond-set bezel and ready to meet any challenge. Teamed with a green leather strap, the relaxed sophistication of the Happy Sport Golf Edition harbours the embodiment of watchmaking nobility in the shape of a mechanical movement with automatic winding.

Seven dancing elements – five diamonds, a golf club and ball in ethical white gold – twirl and light up the passing hours with their endless energy. In the latest of its multiple aesthetic journeys, Happy Sport makes a stopover on golf courses: an encounter propelled by kinetic energy and symbolising the quintessence of casual chic.
Women and diamonds
Much like golf courses long considered an exclusively masculine preserve, diamonds had previously been confined to the formal constraints imposed by gemsetting. Chopard has repeatedly proven its ability to open up and reinvent such worlds in countless different ways. It all began with a newfound taste of liberty: “Diamonds are happier when they are free,” as Karin Scheufele loved to tell her daughter Caroline, who designed the Happy Sport in 1993. Happy Diamonds could thus at last live to the full, released from gemsetting.
With the Happy Sport Golf Edition, five Happy Diamonds, a golf club and golf ball in ethical white gold swing happily between two sapphire crystals, on a frosted green dial featuring a texture as soft as freshly mown grass. The frosted dial stems from the expertise of watchmaking skills and is based on a stamped metal technique that gives it its uniquely vibrant texture, a stunning depth effect perfectly suited to the velvety terrain of golf. From office to cocktail party to a round on the nearest course, Happy Golf is a chameleon watch that smoothly embraces existence like a vast playground.
Deeply ingrained casual chic It has always been inherently chic and radiated fabulous charisma. The Happy Sport is a true style icon which has been playing the mix & match game since 1993, merrily combining genres, steel and diamonds, the enduring and the ephemeral. The peerless meticulous care involved in a swing that is both ample yet absolutely accurate is splendidly echoed in the Happy Sport Golf Edition, which celebrates its carefree sense of chic. Driven by a mechanical movement with automatic winding, it embodies the spirit of the times, in which feather-light design harbours the secret of authentic luxury. Adorned with an ethical 18-carat rose gold polished or diamond-set bezel, its 36 mm case combining stainless steel and rose gold symbolises the kind of sideways step that involves flirting with aesthetic codes and constitutes the essence of femininity – as well as the signature of the absolute freedom characterising the Happy Sport collection.
