Prices for the Chopard Happy Sport Quartz Watches

There are also watches in the Chopard Happy Sport collection that’s available with quartz movement. Despite the boom of automatic watches in the market, traditional quartz watches will always be more precise. Albeit, the batteries in these quartz watches do need to be replaced once the watch stops working. However, by utilizing an electric micro-processor, quartz watches offer absolute precision in timekeeping. Plus, you can always stop the watch when not used frequently to prolong the battery life.

Chopard has several offerings of quartz watches in this family of timepieces. The Chopard Happy Sport Ref. 278582-3001 is a classic silver stainless steel watch. The manufacturer enclosed the white dial with Roman numeral hour markings in a 36mm round case with two rubber straps options. One in a black rubber material and another one in.

Prices for the Chopard Happy Sport Mechanical Hand-Wound Models

Chopard watches powered by the mechanical movement need to be wound manually. Since its release in 2014, the Chopard Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie models have utilized the L.U.C 02.16-L movement. This movement is especially designed to compliment the signature cases of the Happy Sport collection.

The Happy Sport Tourbillon Joaillerie Ref. 274462-1001 is a reiteration of one of the brand’s most iconic timepieces. This 42mm Chopard Happy Sport watch is completely covered in diamonds.

Vintage Chopard Happy Sport Watches: Are They Good Investments?

In the world of Haute Horology, Chopard watches are some of the most regarded timepieces. Thanks to their exclusive designs, air of sophistication, and the ethically sourced materials, Chopard watches are sought-after by those in truly elite circles. Vintage Chopard watches in the Happy Sport collection can cost between an estimated $4,800 USD and $65,000 USD. The price range of pre-owned Chopard watches is tremendously wide, but for good reason. Besides the diamonds adorning the Happy Sport watches, the case material also plays a valuable role in the resell value of these timepieces.

The first-ever Chopard Happy Sport ladies’ watch released in 1993 came in a simple silver-toned stain steel case with five dancing diamonds. These gems were placed between two sapphire crystals above on the dial. The blue hands also served as a delightful contrast between the white dial. It came with a soft pebble-link bracelet. The lugs and crowns featured cabochon-cut sapphires, as well.

The resale value of pre-owned Chopard watches in the Happy Sport also vary depending on several factors. These include the year of production, how rare it is, whether it includes all original documents and boxes and, of course, the overall condition of the watch. The Chopard Happy Sport Ref. 276150-23W released in the early 2000s can sell between $11,995 USD and $17,240 USD. This Chopard Happy Sport ladies’ watch features a soft round case in white gold. A mint condition Chopard Happy Sport Ref. 283582-5006 released in 2011 is on the pre-owned market for as high as a whopping $62,000 USD. While the release of the Ref. 283582-5006 was much later compared to the Ref. 276150-23W, the sheer amount of diamonds and the materials used in manufacturing made it possible to boost a significantly higher resell price. 

Chopard Happy Sport's History and Design Details

Despite launching in 1993, the story behind the Chopard Happy Sport collection goes all the way back to the mid-1970s. In 1976, Ronald Kurowski, a designer for the brand, developed a mechanism that allows diamonds to move freely across a watch. The watches that featured these dancing diamonds caught the light every time they moved. It was the Chopard matriarch Karin Scheufele that dubbed the collection as Happy Diamonds. This was after she saw the first prototype of the watch and commented how the twirling gems were “happier because they’re free”.

Years later, it was her daughter, Caroline Scheufele, that would reinvent this collection into one of the most popular lines from Chopard. Caroline wanted to create more casual and versatile versions of the Happy Diamond watches. However, instead of these diamonds moving freely around the watch, Caroline placed them between two sapphire crystals above the dial. What truly revolutionized and started one of the longest lasting trends in the watchmaking industry was the materials these diamonds were placed on. Instead of the traditional gold cases, Caroline utilized stainless steel.

Breaking the rules of haute horology, Caroline combined understated elegance and sportiness in one truly versatile watch. Instead of these diamonds being reserved for formal occasions, they could now be worn during the fast-paced everyday life of modern women. Instantly, these watches were a massive success. Since then, there have been thousands of reiterations of these Chopard watches. Nowadays, we even see two-toned Happy Sport watches that combine the unpretentious steel with traditional gold. These Chopard women watches are perfect for those who want diamond-set timepieces that will fit all occasions. Regardless if you’re wearing jeans and sneakers or dressed to the nines,  the Happy Sport women’s watches can accompany you while you live your life to the fullest.
