In 2010, Chopard made a bold move. All of the timepieces in their Imperiale Collection were redesigned entirely in honor of the 20th birthday of the collection. Now, in keeping with the luxurious design which the Imperiale Collection is known for, Chopard is launching a gorgeous new timepiece.
The timepiece has aptly been named the Chopard Imperiale Chronograph All Black. Despite it’s monochromatic color palette, the Chopard Imperial Chronograph All Black is designed to play with light in an incredible way, paying homage to the Imperiale Collection. The dial is a flat black, and is surrounded by a circle of luminescent white diamonds. Roman numerals highlight the time, while arabesque motifs evoke a sense of nobility and elegance. The hands are designed to resemble the tapered daggers which sovereigns used in combat. Furthermore, the crown resembles a lotus flower and, in keeping with monochromatic feel of the piece, is adorned with onyx.
The Chopard Imperiale Chronograph All Black is made from stainless steel coated in DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon). The strap of the piece is also coated in DLC. The timepiece is self-winding and beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour. It features a 42 hour power reserve, and is resistant to 50 meters. All of this is packed into a stunning 40mm case.
The Chopard Imperiale Chronograph All Black is an excellent timepiece, and the perfect blend of beauty and sophistication.
