This March, Chopard is presenting a collection exclusively for the ladies, comprising of limited editions created together with and exclusively for Cortina Watch’s anniversary celebrations.

To mark the launch of the two unique series created especially for Cortina Watch’s anniversary festivities, Chopard is presenting the ‘Happy Sport – Tale of an Icon’ exhibition at the main atrium of Paragon Singapore, from 3rd to 13th March 2022.  The exhibition will be accessible to the public from 11am to 8pm daily, with pre-registration available online. Alternatively, visitors are also welcome to walk-in during exhibiting hours.

Unravelling with the statement that started it all – “Diamonds are happier when they are free,” this exhibition aims to create awareness and highlight Chopard’s expertise in artisanal craftsmanship in Fine Watchmaking as well as the inspiration that led to the creation of Happy Sport – a revolutionary timepiece launched in 1993.  

Presented in six chapters, the exhibition also brings to life how the Happy Sport collection embodies the spirit of joie de vivre and the free-spirited modern woman. The final chapter of the exhibition ends with the union of Cortina Watch and Chopard, where the two special editions – Happy Hearts Cortina 50th Anniversary and Happy Moon Cortina 50th Anniversary are unveiled.
