Alpine Eagle XL Chrono

Timepiece

  • Material: stainless steel
  • Manufacturer: Chopard
  • Water Resistance: 100 meters
  • Designer: Karl-Friedrich Scheufele

The Alpine Eagle collection of sporty-chic timepieces stretches its wings, embracing a flyback chronograph in a new 44 mm diameter case for the first time. The Alpine Eagle XL Chrono clock with the integrated bracelet is inspired by the might of the eagle and the beauty of the Alps, as is the complete series.

The new Alpine Eagle XL Chrono is a modern rendition of the St. Moritz, which was introduced in 1980 and was the first watch created by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, who is now Chopard’s president. This watch was made in Lucent Steel A223. It has a chronometer-certified luxury chronograph movement with a flyback feature, expressing its creator’s affection for the Alps and inspired by the dignity of the eagle. Alpine Eagle is a tribute to today’s eagles – those ambitious individuals who strive to exceed their expectations daily and whose vision inspires their colleagues. They are determined and avant-garde, rising to the challenges of tomorrow with zeal, and are intuitively aware of the relevance of environmental issues.
