To truly understand the story behind the Chopard Happy Sport collection, you have to turn the clock back to 1976 when Chopard designer Ronald Kurowski first came up with the idea of encasing a diamond between two pieces of glass, allowing it to dance within a simple pendant design.  Years later, to coincide with Baden-Baden’s Golden Rose prize, sibling watch designers Caroline and Karl-Friedrich Scheufele took inspiration from the piece, combining Kurowski’s cascade of diamonds with steel to create a daring, almost glacial-looking timepiece.  Since then, the iconicHappy Sport watch with its exceptional design concept has appeared in a huge array of ever desirable shapes, sizes and styles: think round, think square, think summery and even think inspired by the French Riviera.
