With Alpine Eagle, Chopard has created a contemporary sporty-chic collection featuring pure design and sophisticated mechanics. Today, with the Alpine Eagle 41 XP Frozen Summit, the collection welcomes a new model combining the Maison’s watchmaking and jewellery expertise, and whose exceptional refinement has been saluted by the Poinçon de Genève. The 41 mm-diameter case, as well as the entire dial, bezel, crown and integrated bracelet in ethical 18-carat white gold, are set with meticulously cut diamonds. This represented a significant challenge, taking the collection to a new jewellery peak and evoking the celestial beauty of stars reflected on glaciers. Making no compromises in terms of technical expertise, this true collector’s timepiece benefits from the watchmaking savoir-faire of Chopard Manufacture embodied in the ultra-thin L.U.C 96.41-L movement, with automatic winding via a micro-rotor ensuring a 65-hour power reserve. 

“With this timepiece, we combine the expertise of our gemsetters with that of our watchmakers, reflecting our heritage in these two artistic crafts perfected over the course of our history – to which we add our lengthy experience in selecting cut stones. Entirely crafted in our workshops, the Alpine Eagle 41 XP Frozen Summit reflects our appreciation of ultimate sophistication”

Chopard’s Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele

While the Alpine Eagle collection has already welcomed a family of gemset timepieces, the Alpine Eagle 41 XP Frozen Summit model has now reached a new pinnacle. This veritable collector’s masterpiece showcases the art of gemsetting cultivated by the Maison’s skilled artisans. They have painstakingly recut several hundred diamonds and set them on the case, dial and bezel, as well as on each facet of the crown and each link of the bracelet in ethical 18-carat white gold. 

With its graphic shapes and geometry, the baguette cut chosen for these stones is particularly suited to the aesthetics of the Alpine Eagle collection and its relationship with light.
