Black, sporty and mature, the Imperial Chrono All Black watch exudes the mysterious beauty, which is suitable for the most glamorous fashion dinners, as well as the sports hiking that steals the leisurely half-day leisure.
When the elegance of modernism echoes the splendor of the empire, classics are bound to brew. The Chopard Imperiale series, which was born in the 1990s and redesigned in 2010, added a new ‘all black’ automatic chronograph, which is full of sportiness and full of mature beauty.
The Imperiale Chrono All Black watch is all black, and its reflection in the light is striking. Every face and hands of the dial have been carefully selected to achieve the best legible results while maintaining the beauty of its simple and solid colors. The bezel set with diamonds adds maturity to it, creating a shockingly strong contrast effect, making the positioning of this new Imperiale watch even more elusive, lying between the middle of elegance and sportiness.
Details in luxury The Imperiale Chrono All Black series watches retain the luxury details of the Empire era in style. The fine Arabic pattern dial is set against Roman numerals, reminiscent of embroidered cushions on which the royals of the palace place their badges. The slightly curved hands resemble the sharp daggers that the monarchs used to fight.
The lotus-shaped crown is inlaid with onyx and is mounted on the angular frame, adding a glory and lightness to the watch. The lug shape draws inspiration from the ancient temple pillars known for their perfect balance and proportion.
The strap and case of the Imperiale Chrono All Black watch are made of top-grade stainless steel, manufactured in-house by Chopard Watch Factory, and then processed with DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated stainless steel to form a distinctive black gloss. There is another black rubber strap for the strap of the Imperiale Chrono All Black. The watch is 40 mm in diameter and features a self-winding mechanical movement that is water-resistant to 50 meters.
