Julia Roberts: The new face of Chopard’s Happy Sport campaign

Just days before the official launch of Chopard’s Happy Sport campaign, the luxury Swiss brand dropped a teaser for what’s to come.

Luxury watches made with precious metals like platinum, titanium and proprietary alloys

The pay-offs of intensive research and development in metallurgy, these eight extraordinary timepieces are made of metals exhibiting remarkable properties. Platinum More precious and durable than gold, platinum is the denser and rarer metal. Due to its less malleable nature, platinum is comparatively harder to be fabricated into watch cases.

Limited to 100 numbered pieces and part of the Cartier Privé collection,...
