Stories passed down from generation to generation

At the time, a 22-year-old young employee in the family watch factory, he proposed to his father his idea to create a watch called St. Moritz. Through this enterprising project, the young Schaefer persists in self-development, grows rapidly, and then spreads his wings high.
St. Moritz is not only Chopard’s first sports watch, but also the first steel timepiece created by the brand’s workshop. It was extremely innovative for Chopard, who was specialized in making gold and diamond-set gold watches at that time. Behind it is a real but carefully assessed risk.

He was hesitant at first, but his son’s firm conviction touched him, just as he himself won the support of his father 40 years ago.
Nature, excellent craftsmen
With his extraordinary creativity and passion for the Alps, Karl-Frederick Schaefer created a new series: Alpine Eagle based on the harmonious principle of Louis Sullivan’s “form, service and function”. As a rare watch that integrates the case and bracelet, Alpine Eagle’s design is refined and modern, with many elements echoing the Alpine Eagle and its habitat. The texture of the rocky dial is reminiscent of the iris of an eagle, the hands resemble the feathers of this raptor, and the shining stainless steel is like a glacier. The color of the dial is also very implied: Aletsch Glacier Blue represents the brilliant blue light flowing between the majestic glaciers in the Swiss Alps; Bernina ash refers to the color of the rugged rocks on the Bernina Mountains; mother-of-pearl and large The Hiiti mother-of-pearl dial shines with iridescent luster, with Alpine frost white and Sils star grey respectively representing the changing of the seasons and the rising and setting of the sun. The sun shines on the Sils Lake near St. Moritz The colorful halo changed.
The bracelet of the Alpine Eagle replica watch gradually narrows and consists of a single gold brick-shaped link with a raised top cover in the center. What distinguishes the case is the protrusion that provides protection for the crown. The crown is engraved with a compass rose, an instrument that has helped explorers find directions since ancient times. Today, it symbolizes the contemporary “eagle” that can choose the right direction when determining its own destiny.
The round bezel of the Alpine Eagle watch is decorated with eight screws, two by two, distributed in four basic directions. The notch of the screw is in the same direction as the curvature of the bezel, which is a sign of high-quality finishing and the pursuit of refined aesthetics. These screws also have technical functions to ensure that the water resistance of the watch reaches 100 meters. All planes of the Alpine Eagle watch are satin-finished. This meticulous surface treatment can create a light and shadow effect, which is further enhanced by chamfering and polishing. The hour, minute and time markers are covered with Super-LumiNova® Grade X1 fluorescent coating to make reading at night clearer. The white snow, turbulence and rocks of the Alps inspired Karl-Frederick Schaefer. Just as their appearance changes with the light, polishing and frosting make the Alpine Eagle watch constantly change between light and dark.
