Earlier this year WatchPro unveiled its Watches of the Year 2012 – the 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Highly commended for WatchPro Showstopping Watch of the Year 2012 was the Chopard Imperial Tourbillon Full Set.
Underneath the swathe of diamonds set into the white gold case is a chronometer-certified tourbillon calibre L.U.C. 02.14-L, bearing the Poinçon de Genève hallmark.
The tourbillion is visible at six o’clock, while the power-reserve indicator is highlighted at 12 o’clock in an arc set with amethysts.
That’s the impressive thing about this watch — it might be ostentatious on the surface but it has the intelligence inside to quieten those unimpressed by diamonds.
