New: Chopard Happy Sport Sincere Platinum Jubilee Edition

The Chopard Happy Sport The First Sincere Platinum Jubilee Edition has a retail price of SGD 18,300 (including GST). 30 piece limited edition.


The Chopard Happy Sport lineup has become iconic since the launch in 1993. We reviewed a variant with an oval case and came away quite impressed.

This novelty is based on the standard offering in a round case measuring 33mm in diameter. It is offered in Lucent Steel for the case and pebble bracelet, which is not available in the regular round cased collection. The pebble bracelet is only available in the Oval models. The dial is in a burgundy red hue, a first for the collection.

The movement is the Chopard 09.01-C, a self winding in-house manufacture movement. Finishing on the movement is good, but not at the same level as Chopard’s own L.U.C movements. The case back bears a discreet Sincere logo to mark the celebration.

Pricing wise, compared to the standard round case model retails at SGD 14k, or the Happy Sport Oval now retails at SGD 15.4k. This Sincere novelty carries a premium at SGD 18.3k. For that, you get the 30 piece exclusivity – burgundy dial, Sincere insignia and the (switcheroo with the Oval) pebble bracelet in place of the 3 link bracelet on the standard model.

The Pursuit of Proportion

Ensuring symmetry and comfort in their timepieces is crucial for Chopard, especially in their Happy Sport collection. Caroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard, expressed this sentiment in 1993, revealing her desire for a versatile watch suitable for all occasions: “I wanted a watch that I could wear all day long: at the gym, in the office, or for a dinner in town.” This enduring pursuit of harmony is now realized through the application of the golden ratio, guiding the proportions of the latest models in the collection. With roots dating back to antiquity, this mathematical concept seeks to replicate the innate harmony found in science, art, and architecture. By aligning the dimensions of the movement tailored for Chopard’s ladies’ watch collections with the principles of the golden ratio, the Happy Sport’s case is meticulously crafted to a 33mm diameter, ensuring perfect proportionality and complemented by an elegantly supple bracelet.

Timeless Icon with a Modern Twist

Aesthetically, the new Chopard Happy Sport The First Sincere Platinum Jubilee Edition is deliberately modeled after the original icon introduced in 1993. However, it distinguishes itself with a unique dial color. The round case features a burgundy red dial adorned with Roman hour-markers. This choice marks the first time in the Happy Sport collection that Chopard has selected this particularly striking hue for the Sincere Platinum Jubilee Edition, emblematic of the retailer’s commitment to nurturing the appreciation of horological craftsmanship.
