A History of Chopard Watches
1836 – Louis-Ulysse Chopard is born on May 4th in the Swiss village of Sonvilier, Switzerland.
1860 – Louis establishes his workshop in his home village on Sonvilier. Due to his diligence with regards to precision and reliability, he quickly garners respect in the field, gaining buyers from as far afield as Eastern Europe, Russia, and Scandinavia.
1921 – Louis’ founder’s son, Paul Louis Chopard, opens a branch in La Chaux-de-Fonds, and then relocates the company headquarters there.
1937 – Chopard relocates to Geneva, the capital of Haute Horologie (Fine Watchmaking in English), bringing the brand closer to its cosmopolitan clientele and launching into the production of quality watches.
1943 – Paul André Chopard, grandson of Louis-Ulysse, takes the helm of the Chopard business.
1963 – Paul André seeks a buyer capable of taking the Chopard brand forward and reviving the brand’s rich heritage, as none of his sons wished to carry on the business. Karl Scheufele, descendant of a strong line of watchmakers and jewellers from Pforzheim, Germany, steps forward. Already the owner of the firm Scheufele (producing watches under the Eszeha brand name) founded in 1904, he combines the two manufacturing entities and continues production under the Chopard brand.
1974 – Production leaves the centre of Geneva and moves to the Mayrin-Geneva site. The Chopard brand develops an additional focus, this time centred on jewellery and watches for ladies.
1976 – The first Happy Diamonds watch is created. Encapsulated around the watch movement are free spinning, mobile diamonds.
1980 – The first sport watch with a leather strap is released, the St. Moritz. Further development of the Happy Diamonds watch is also a success.
1986 – The first Chopard Boutique opens in Europe in Geneva.

1997 – Presentation of the L.U.C 1860, the first Chopard watch housing an L.U.C movement. The 1860 is voted “Watch of the Year” by the Swiss magazine Montres Passion.
