While it may have been considered faddish at the time, the Chopard Happy Diamonds, whose dial has diamonds dancing free, became one of the classics for the Chopard brand.
The signature floating stones were designed by Ronald Kurowski, a theatrical set designer. While hiking in the Black Forest, he was enthralled by the sight of sunbeams glistening on a waterfall. He decided to design a watch whose diamonds are free to “dance” along the dial.
Chopard has launched many editions of the Happy Diamonds – like 1993’s Happy Sport – the first ever steel watch with diamonds; and their new collections continue to be inspired by the playfulness of the original design.
