The timepieces, created to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation reflect the artist’s charismatic personality, and in particular his innate sense of extravagance, generosity and love for fine watches and jewelry. A percentage of the profits from the sale of the new collection will be donated to support the fight against AIDS.
The new Chopard Elton John watches, bold and powerful, sparkle with a myriad of precious stones, including diamonds presented either alone or united with rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. The timepieces are also adorned with colorful yellow, pink or black diamonds.
The color of the dial matches the tone of the gems. There is also a version with a white or grey-rose mother-of-pearl dial. For fans of simplicity, Chopard created timepieces with a case and dial in plain white or rose gold.
The dial features central hour, minute and 60-second chronograph hands. The 12-hour chronograph counter is positioned at 6 o’clock, the 30-minute counter - at 9 o’clock and the 60-second counter - at 3 o’clock. The date window is found between 4 and 5 o’clock. The dial is protected by glare-proof sapphire crystal.
The Elton John chronograph watches are animated by a self-winding movement, offering precision of a COSC-certified Chronometer. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the movement gives an advantage of a 42-hour power-reserve.
The case of the new Chopard watches is crafted from 18K white or rose gold. Despite its big size (42mm in diameter), it perfectly fits the wrist, providing extreme comfort of wearing. The timepieces are 100-meter water-resistant. The case back of the watches is engraved with Elton John signature.
The new Chopard Elton John watches are coupled with a black, brown or pink crocodile leather strap fitted with an 18-K gold buckle. As watches.infoniac.com has been informed, the timepieces will be available in a limited edition of 2000 pieces.
