WORDS RUUD VAN SLOOTEN
For the decoration of this secret watch, the craftsmen in the Chopard studios were inspired by motifs from Inca art. Like a Pre-Columbian mosaic, turquoises and brilliant-cut diamonds form the decoration on the cover plate that transforms this watch into a beautiful bracelet. The pattern is repeated on the white, mother-of-pearl dial in the middle of the classic design that is so characteristic of the Imperial collection, of which this watch forms a part. The 38 mm case with a damask strap is of Fairmined white gold set with diamonds and houses Chopard’s automatic L.U.C. 96 12-L movement.
