In 2010, Chopard created 150 pieces of unique jewellery to commemorate its 150th anniversary. The Artistic Director of Chopard, Caroline Scheufele, brought the Animal World collection to being for this celebration and it features a whimsical selection of creatures that ranged from the common to the imaginary. In the process of bringing this bestiary to life, Scheufele explored many avenues to create remarkable pieces that were original and aesthetically pleasing.
Featuring household pets like cats, to exotic animals such as birds of paradise, and even mystical beasts like the dragon; this extraordinary anniversary collection attests to Chopard’s genius in the fields of jewellery making and watchmaking. Within the anniversary collection, there are 15 watches of unique and original design; two of which are featured in this sale, including the diamond and sapphire Owl watch and the diamond and enamel Happy Sport Turtle watch. These incredible pieces will surely bring colour to each day, no matter how ordinary it may be.
