In 1860 Chopard was founded by the talented Swiss Louis-Ulysse Chopard who began creating watches for the rich and cosmopolitan. Since then Chopard has grown to become an international name inextricable with timeless design and premium quality. Chopard jewels regularly stop the show on the red carpet. And at Cannes the prestigious Palme D’Or has been made by Chopard since 1998. Chopard glasses are created by hand with precious materials such as Swarovski crystals and palladium.
