Chopard Releases Reinvented Alpine Eagle Collection
Chopard New Alpine Eagle Collection
King Jewelers is excited to announce the release of the Chopard Alpine Eagle collection. In three different vartiants, this watch seems to be a direct descendant of the iconic Chopard St. Moritz, which first debuted in 1980. It was originally designed by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele when he was only 22 years old. His son, Karl-Fritz came up with the idea of recreating this model in a contemporary, yet timeless fashion. Together, the duo named this remodeled watch, the Alpine Eagle. Keep in mind that the Alpine Eagle Collectoin is made up of 10 different references in two different sizes.
What Makes the Chopard Alpine Eagle Unique?
Just like most luxury steel sport watches, the Alpine Eagle has watch enthusiasts buzzing. The 41mm case surprises most who try on this timepiece in person because it doesn’t look or feel too big or bulky. The wide bezel makes the dial seem smaller and the watch more wearable for everyday. One of the most unique aspects of this watch is the highly-polished accents on the bezel screws and bracelet links. This watch is exceptionally shiny because Chopard has curated a unique steel alloy called Lucent A223, which is significantly tougher and more scratch-resistant than regular steel. Another reason why Chopard created the Lucent A223 is due to ethical and environmental sustainability. Approximately 70 percent of the steel is recycled and 30 percent is mined with traceable roots.
How It Looks
Although the look of this watch resembles the St. Moritz model, we cant help but admire a few minor differences that give it a more modern aesthetic. To demonstrate, we now have a perfectly circular bezel with smaller, fitted screws rather than an oddly shaped “bumpy” look. We also notice that the date window has moved from the six o’clock position and is now found between Roman numeral hour markers four and five. The Aletsch blue dial features a galvanic treament that is meant to resemble the iris of an eagle, leading us to the thought process behind its name. Running on a manufactured movement called Chopard 01.01-C, this watch reveals a 60-hour power reserve.
