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

The Alpine Eagle xl chrono 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 St. Moritz, which was introduced in 1980 and was the first watch created by Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, 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 โ€“ 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.

Movement Chronometer – Alpine Eagle xl Chrono

The chronometer-certified movements at the core of Alpine Eagle luxury watches were created solely by Maison Chopard, staying true to Karl-Friedrich Scheufele’s great devotion to fine watchmaking.

Dial

The galvanic blue or grey brass dial, which was inspired by an eagle’s iris and is embellished with a sunburst motif, serves as a gentle reminder that Nature is the most talented of all muses.

Bracelet

The gently tapered Alpine Eagle luxury watch bracelet comprises a single ingot-shaped link, topped by a raised central cap reminiscent of its mountain biotope. Crafted in Chopard Lucent Steel A223, it is a feat of both technical execution and style.

Crown

Evoking a spirit of adventure, the crown is engraved with a compass rose, an instrument that has helped adventurers find their way since ancient times. Today, it has become the emblem of contemporary eagles capable of choosing the right direction in pursuing their destiny, an invitation to explore the majesty of the natural world surrounding us.
