chopard alpine eagle closeup



The majestic bird of prey with sharp powerful claws has turned its piercing gaze to the collections of the Geneva-based brand, inspiring three generations of men to create a new timepiece.

Chopard’s current co-president, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, is proud to bring back a contemporary version of the St Moritz, the first piece that he created in the 1980s, today reinterpreted and renamed Alpine Eagle in homage to the majestic bird of prey which flies over the mountains.

chopard alpine eagle closeupCrowned with a large bezel held in place by 4 pairs of 8 screws, the brass dial is stamped to look like the iris of an eagle, with its beaming veined grooves. This disk is available in royal blue or taupe gray, or Tahitian pearl for the women’s versions, with a silver or gold chapter ring, composed of index markers and Roman numerals covered with Super-LumiNova®. The time display is indicated by a pair of baton-shaped hands, also luminescent, and a second hand with a counterweight inspired by the silhouette of an eagle’s feather.
