Chopard (Instagram), a name synonymous with luxury and innovation, unveils its latest masterpiece: the Alpine Eagle XL Chrono. The gorgeous timepiece effortlessly combines style and innovation, offering a modern interpretation of the iconic St. Moritz watch. With its ‘Maritime Blue’ dial, cutting-edge Chopard 03.05-C movement, and a contemporary rubber strap, this watch is a true marvel.
The Alpine Eagle XL Chrono boasts a new 44 mm model crafted from Lucent Steel. This exclusive steel, made with a remarkable recycling rate of at least 80%, is renowned for its anti-allergenic properties and exceptional brilliance. Rounding out the stunning case, the right-hand pushers for the chronograph functions seamlessly integrate into the design, preserving the collection’s harmonious shape.
At its core, the Chopard 03.05-C movement, developed and assembled by Chopard’s artisans, is one of the world’s most innovative chronograph movements. With a 60-hour power reserve, it guarantees precise adjustments and optimal use of the chronograph functions. This movement features a unidirectional gear drive system, ensuring efficient automatic winding, a vertical clutch for precise time measurement starts, and a flyback function, making successive timing operations seamless. It is also officially chronometer-certified by the Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.
The case and its incredible movement are supported by a contemporary rubber strap. The rubber, water-resistant and comfortable, adds a dynamic touch to the timepiece while preserving the collection’s signature elegance.
The ‘Maritime Blue’ dial is inspired by the natural colors of an Alpine landscape and the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Its texture and sunburst pattern evoke an eagle’s iris. The hands and hour-markers are coated with Grade XI Super-LumiNova, ensuring readability in any lighting condition.
The Alpine Eagle collection is a modern reinterpretation of the St. Moritz watch, the first creation by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele in the late 1970s. With its impeccable design, the Alpine Eagle embodies elegance in a contemporary way. It offers various complications, from high-frequency movements to a flying tourbillon, and even an extra-thin model with small seconds.
