Haute Time Dubai’s correspondent Rebecca Anne Proctor recently visited the Chopard boutique in Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi. Today we’re bringing you the exclusive photos from her visit to the boutique, and of course some close up looks at the incredible timepieces housed by the boutique.
Located in Marina Mall, a shopping destination greatly popular with Abu Dhabi residents, the Chopard boutique features a contemporary yet cozy style by architect and designer Thierry Despont. Upon entering, the visitor will immediately have the sensation that they are within a living room area. The store boasts light woods (renewable we are told in order to conserve the environment) for flooring and paneling, sumptuous fabrics and furnishings that were created in such a manner in order to highlight the stunning jewels, watches and other finely crafted products on display. The wall panels are made of fine leather as are the store fixtures and furniture fronts – elements which evoke a sense of warmth and familiarity. The brand’s opulence is also echoed through the boutique’s luscious velvet found on the curtains and chairs.
One of the impressive watches on display was the Chopard L.U.C Elegance Quattro watch in 18-carat rose gold with 1.52 carat diamonds. A classic model with a distinctive decor, the watch boasts a refined silver dial and a 43 mm diameter case that houses the L.U.C Calibre 98.01-L with a 9-day power reserve. It is chronometer-certified and bears the esteemed Poinçon de Genève quality hallmark.
The Chopard L.U.C. Chrono One Watch is a robust model that makes a bold yet elegant statement. It has a round 18-carat white gold case that is 42 mm diameter complete with a see-through case back, black crocodile strap with a 18-carat white gold deployant buckle. Its sleek black dial has silver hands and Arabic numerals, chronograph functions and a 45 jewel Caliber L.U.C. 11 CF self-winding COSC certified movement. It is water-resistant up to 30 meters and has a 60 hour power reserve.
This Happy Sport watch is stylish and greatly feminine. It is found in 18-carat rose gold with stainless steel features and a self-winding mechanical movement. It also has a sleek case on a two-toned bracelet, along with a guilloché centre and a contemporary silver-toned dial. This piece’s signature expression is seen in its moving diamonds on the diamonds. As they shift and turn according to the wearer’s movements, they display unmissable rays of light.
