This new version of the Imperiale watch is being launched in three of Chopard’s favourite colours: timeless white, as well as two subtle pastels. Lavender blue and powder pink. Crafted in rose gold for versions with a pink and white mother-of-pearl dial, and white gold for the blue version, the Imperiale watch also comes with a range of satin straps matching the dial colours. The bezel, lugs and hour-markers are set with brilliant-cut diamonds,
resulting in a model whose elegance is rooted in History and entirely in tune with modern times.
Born in the 1990’s and entirely redesigned in 2010, the Imperiale watch presents a wealth of distinctive features which are reminiscent of the imperial era – starting with Roman
numerals punctuating the dial and marking off the hours. In this fresh development of the line, they appear on a shimmering mother-of-pearl dial giving the watch unprecedented luminosity. The hands divide this canvas, while their curves are reminiscent of the sharp daggers used by sovereigns in battle. The crown, curved like a lotus flower and set with a diamond, is mounted on a case middle with curved sides to give a lighter touch to the model. The shape of the lugs reflects the tradition of antique columns, which have remained famous for the balance and perfection of their proportions.
