Inspired by a historical Chopard model reinterpreted by three generations of men from the Scheufele family, the Alpine Eagle collection has been constantly enriched since its launch by new innovations and welcomes today a new 33mm diameter. The self-winding 09.01-C movement stems from developments by Chopard Manufacture and is COSC certified, a rare feature for such a small diameter. The Alpine Eagle 33 model is faithful to its aesthetic: a round case with stylised sides, a crown engraved with the compass rose, a bezel with eight functional screws set at a tangent, a stamped dial featuring deep colours, and finally a metal bracelet that is particularly comfortable on the wrist.
In 2013, Chopard embarked on a Journey to Sustainable Luxury, a long-term commitment which aims to protect and preserve the Earth from which we source our raw materials as well as the people involved in our supply chain.
100% of the refined gold used for this watch comes from sources that are verified as having met international best practice environmental and social standards. Chopard also has an in-house foundry which is not only able to guarantee the origin of the gold used in the production but is above all able to directly resmelt gold scraps and production waste in order to recycle unused material.
The diamonds used for this timepiece follow the principles for transparency stipulated by the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme and the Responsible Jewellery Council system of warranties.
