CHOPARD

Chopard is a Swiss luxury company focused on watches, jewellery and accessoires. Chopard was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard. In 1963 Karl Scheufele acquired Chopard; Scheufele is a descendant of a dynasty of watchmakers and jewelers from Germany. After the acquisition Chopard quickly gained traction among collectors, it is now one of the leading luxury watch companies and operates entirely independent as a family-run brand. The Chopard manufacture in Fleurier produces L.U.C movements which can be found in many Chopard timepieces. Notable Chopard watches for men and Chopard women's watches include the Chopard Happy Diamonds, Chopard Imperiale, Chopard Classic Racing, Chopard L.U.C., Chopard Classic. Being a luxury focused brand Chopard is both popular for its Chopard men's watches and the diamond watches it produces for women. The Chopard watch price list is the official reference for dealers and collectors, it serves as an indicator whether collectors are buying an originial watch or a Chopard watch replica. Such replica Chopard watches are never a good investment, we usually recommend buying the timepieces at certified retailers, after having read one of our Chopard watches reviews. In case high-end products are feasible in terms of budgets, collectors will see that Chopard watches prices will be in the higher end of the market, so the question how much is a Chopard watch is hereby answered with a look at the Chopard watch price list.
