A new set of Alpine Eagle Frozen timepieces have joined Chopard’s sporty-chic Alpine Eagle collection, taking inspiration from the wintery Alps.
Launched in 2019, the Alpine Eagle collection offers a wide variety of pieces in Lucent Steel A223, ethical gold, as well as an exclusive model in titanium with a high-frequency movement. Now, the latest Alpine Eagle Frozen timepieces gleam in ethical 18-carat white or rose gold, featuring cases, bezels and integrated bracelets entirely set with precious stones.
Using the majesty of nature as its aesthetic guide, the new models mimic the dazzling effect of frost flakes found in the Alpine mountains through its abundance of diamonds and coloured sapphires.
Showcasing the masterful gemsetting technique and ability of Chopard’s in-house artisans, each of the Alpine Eagle Frozen timepieces require at least 20 hours of meticulous work to craft. The entire case, dial and bracelet links are painstakingly paved with hundreds of diamonds.
The bezel, while maintaining the collection’s signature eight indexed screws, is graced with baguette-cut precious stones. The pieces come in a few glittering options, including an all diamond-set bezel, one set with sapphires, and one with multi-colored sapphires in a rainbow-hued gradient.
Technical expertise meets artful aesthetics
In addition to the eight indexed screws, other features emblematic of the collection are found in the new Alpine Eagle Frozen pieces, such as the round case with stylised flanks, the integrated bracelet, and the compass rose.
Ensuring excellent readability, the faceted hands on the dial point to rhodium-plated Roman numerals that are enhanced with Grade X1 SuperLuminova®.
Powered by an 182-component Chopard 01.03-C calibre, the 41mm Large models offer a power reserve of 60 hours on top of superb reliability. In the Small 36 mm pieces, the Chopard 09.01-C calibre provides up to 42 hours of power reserve.
Displaying the intricate craftsmanship of the Alpine Eagle Frozen timepieces, the mechanical self-winding movement can be observed through a sapphire crystal on the back.
“Alpine Eagle Frozen is directly inspired by Alpine glaciers and the way they brilliantly reflect the sunshine,” shares Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, co-president of Chopard and co-creator of the collection with his son and father. “Each diamond used on this timepiece sparkles like a snowflake that has settled on the mountain tops.”
