Over at the Chopard headquarters the eagle flies high and continues to spread its reach. What was once described by Karl-Frederich Scheufele, as a “re-edit of the St. Moritz" model. Has gone on to carve out its very own collection that continues to expand. The latest “Chopard Alpine Eagle” release adds a pine green dial to this luxury sports watch with an integrated bracelet.We always like to remind our readers that the “Alpine Eagle” collection was conceived to support the “Eagle Wings Foundation”, which was founded by the president of Chopard, Karl-Friedrich Scheufelle. Those seeking more information on these noble efforts to preserve wildlife can do so by visiting: www.eaglewingsfoundation.org/The 41mm case is available in solid Lucent steel A223 or 18k ethical rose gold. Both with a mix of vertically brushed surfaces, and polished accents around the bezel rim, and case bands smoothly into the lugs.This noteworthy Lucent steel A223 is 50% harder than normal steel with anti-allergenic and extra reflective attributes. While the 18k rose gold version is made entirely from ethically sourced gold, that honors a commitment made by Chopard back in 2018, for all its watch and jewelry creations. On the flip-side we encounter a transparent sapphire exhibition caseback that allows us to view the inner workings of this upgraded in-house movement. A green inscription with the Alpine Eagle Foundation.Mounted to the case is a rounded bezel held in place by 8 screws in pairs, aligned at each quarter hour position. Their slots have been placed at a tangent towards the bezels circle.The bezel design on this model has always rivaled and found its own place among other great pieces of art: Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak, IWC’s Ingenieur or Patek Philippe’s Nautilus; but this is clearly a legit and solid alternative.It also comes equipped with a screw-down crown embossed with the standard northern star in a chiseled form. All topped by a sapphire crystal over dial with glare-proof coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on a pine green colored dial with a mixture of gilded Roman numerals and hour index markers, while a ring of smaller minute markers circle around the sloped flange. This particular green hue was obtained through a PVD treatment and was inspired by the natural colors that exist in the Alpine biotope. “It evokes the forests carpeting the mountains when, on summer days, the melting snow gives way to a deep grayish-green mantle of vegetation.”Inspiration for this dial's overall aesthetics can be directly attributed to the eagle’s iris, which inspired this whole collection. There is also a date aperture tucked-away between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions, with a color coordinated disc to fade into the background and let the center canvas lead. The central hands, Roman numerals and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
