Watch Spotlight: New Additions to Chopard’s Imperiale Collection

Jun 18, 2012

A true classic from the House of Chopard, the Imperiale watch collection is welcoming new variations. This year sees the introduction of a steel chronograph, while the majestic lines of this collection are enriched with yellow gold.

When the codes of contemporary elegance echo the grandeur of the Roman Empire, a true classic is clearly in the making. Born in the 1990s and entirely revisited in 2010, the Imperiale radiates an appeal stemming first and foremost from its harmonious proportions and refined details. Endowed with a powerful and symbolic character, it asserts itself as the natural choice for women impelled by an all-conquering spirit.

The serene strength of its details distils a wealth of details that are all nods to the heyday of the imperial age. These include the Roman numerals punctuating the dial and marking off the hours. This elegant frame surrounds a centre subtly reminiscent of a painting by great master, featuring a delicately carved mother-of-pearl backdrop graced with motifs calling to mind the embroidered cushions that used to bear the royal insignia. This refined canvas is swept over by exquisitely curved hands evoking the sharp daggers used by sovereigns in combat.

A crown delicately curved like a lotus flower and set with an amethyst cabochon is fitted to a case middle with pure, sleek sides designed to give the model a lighter and more luminous glow. The shape of the lugs echoes the tradition of ancient columns that are famed for their perfectly balanced proportions, while the gold models are enhanced by an ultimate touch of refinement in the shape of amethyst cabochons set on the lugs.

The sheer wealth and finesse of its details make the Imperiale collection an eminently feminine model, and its timeless chic revives the spirit and the splendour of imperial classicism. With these latest models, yellow gold makes its grand entrance into the watches of this collection, setting off the perfection of their majestic lines to magnificent effect. The chronograph with a steel case that is also being introduced brings a resolutely contemporary twist to the Imperiale collection.
