Chopard

From Louis-Ulysse Chopard (1836-1915) to the Scheufele family (1963), Chopard has been totally independent through the centuries. The brand inspires the collective imagination with both exceptional jewellery and premium luxury watches. Known for its creativity, its technology and the excellence of its artisans, Chopard's successes have peppered history: the Happy Diamonds watch, the Mille Miglia collection... The Cannes Festival seals its extraordinary partnership with the seventh art.
