Chopard Alpine Eagle with small seconds

Between its 2023 watch and Wonders debut, Chopard has added an ultra-thin small-seconds model to its high-flying Alpine CutEagle collection.

The new Chopard Alpine Eagle 41 XPS.

The new watch, the Chopard Alpine Eagle 41 XPS, comes a year after the Chopard Alpine Eagle Flying Tourbillon debuted a small-seconds display. The new watch expands an already impressive list of Alpine Eagle variations with flyback chronograph movements, high-frequency calibers and the latest flying tourbillon.

This series houses Chopard’s superior LUC 96.40-L movement in a 41mm by 8mm steel case, with what Chopard calls the “Monte Rosa Pink” dial.

Chopard explains that the new dial color is inspired by natural alpine colors and is named to evoke the pink shimmer after which the second-highest mountain range in the Alps is named.

The Chopard LUC caliber inside the new watch, like many of Chopard’s excellent in-house movements, offers a much-welcomed long power reserve of sixty-five hours thanks to its two stacked barrels based on Chopard Twin technology.

Chopard equips the movement with a stop-seconds function that is backed up with a chronometer certification by the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. (Note the “Chronometer” inscription on the dial below the logo.) In addition to its chronometer certification, the watch is finished to the Geneva Seal Haute Horlogerie standard.

Chopard manufactures all its steel Alpine Eagle models with its own lucent steel A223, a particularly shiny and element-resistant alloy. Other features of the collection include a circular case with stylized flanks, a crown engraved with a compass rose, a bezel with eight functional screws set on a tangent, a stamped colored ‘Eagle’s Iris’ dial, luminous indications and a metal bracelet. Price: $22,500.

Also new in 2023

During Watches and Wonders 2023, Chopard also debuts a new 25mm Happy Sport collection featuring a choice of materials, straps – including a new double tour option – and diamond settings in four variations. Prices start at $4,450.
