Chopard’s new look

Chopard's Imperiale watch makes the age old craft of watchmaking look more glamorous than ever before.

Chopard Imperiale, behind the scenes at the shoot for the new ad campaign

Chopard relaunch the Imperiale women's watch with new designs in opulent materials. First seen in the 1990's the Imperiale makes a comeback with a full collection from delicate evening watches to sporty automatic chronographs. Options include white or rose gold cases, diamond studded bezels as well as stainless steel models. Look out for the engraved mother of pearl dials, dagger-shaped hands and the little cabochon set into the crown.

If you thought that business of horology was all about watchmakers working quietly at their benches with the snowflakes falling outside and the whirr of miniature drills and polishing wheels, take a look at our behind the scenes shots of Chopard's new advertising campaign. Yes, those devoted watchmakers are peering through their loupes and checking cogs for burrs while another team takes over to promote the finished product.

Chopard, who have added a whole lot of Swiss-made glamour to the business of selling watches, show how getting the right look is as important and balancing your springs and oiling your pivots. The full-colour campaign tells the story of the 'Imperiale' lifestyle, that as its name suggests, is removed from the mundane and takes us to a world of elegance, refinement, Italian villas and vintage airplanes.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
