The Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix is the place for watch makers from all parts of the world to come together and discuss the pros and cons of the industry and also for guiding it to new heights. Again, they select the best watch creations in the previous year and award them prizes on a variety of categories. One of the cherished prizes among them is the Jewelry and Artistic Crafts Watch Prize. This year, Chopard Imperiale Tourbillon Full Set won this coveted prize and this is yet another proof of the brand’s gem-setting expertise.
Chopard is a world renowned jeweler par excellence. Again, they have mastered the craft of watch making through the many past decades of watch making activities. Here, they incorporated their expertise in both of these spheres and came out on top with the Imperiale Tourbillon Full Set. Here they have achieved truly never before seen perfection in creating luxury watches for ladies. You can certainly look at it as a watch or as a piece of jewelry or even as a piece of art. Now, the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix 2012 has recognized the effort of this famous watch maker.
L.U.C 02-14-L hand-winding movement that is powering the watch operation is crafted manually to ensure the highest quality standards. One of the major attractions of the model is the one minute tourbillon. What is so special about it, you may question, as it is seen in many watches? This tourbillon feature is not that unusual in men’s watches. But the story is quite different for ladies watches. As the Imperiale is a ladies watch, the presence of the tourbillon is something quite unique.
This Chopard luxury women’s watch is created using 18 carat white gold and has ample size to showcase the expertise of the watchmaker in its 42 mm diameter dial. They incorporated a special technique to cover the entire watch dial with diamonds. The aesthetically shaped hour and minute hands applied with rhodium look amazing in this sparkling surrounding.
As diamonds are considered to be the best friends of women, Chopard has used a lot of them in this watch to add to its glitter and sparkle. They are placed on the crown, around the power reserve indicator located at 12 O’ clock position, the bezel, the lugs and even on the bracelet.
Chopard Imperiale Tourbillon Full Set has an equally impressive case back that can keep you engrossed by its beauty as well as the operation of its mechanical parts seen through the transparent antiglare material coated sapphire crystal.
When Chopard started creating this watch, they were looking at it as a jewelry item as well as a luxurious ladies wrist watch. They used the services of a vast array of experienced artists and technicians in their possession and came up with the stylish watch. Now, their efforts are paid off with the acknowledgement from their fellow watch makers and watch lovers from around the globe.
