Chopard's L’Heure du Diamant collection might just be the timepieces we've been waiting to invest in...

Chopard has just unveiled a stunning new watch collection by the name of L'Heure du Diamant. Following the maison's Happy Sport Dubai limited edition collection released late last year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its boutique in Dubai's Wafi Mall, this is the next collection getting us all excited.  

So, L'Heure du Diamant features three watches. At the centre of each one, is opal – a powerful feature that symbolises sacredness. Indeed, this collection revives a sense of elegant nostalgia by borrowing its oval case from the 1970s style repertoire. It's full of emotion. 

Let's break it down for you...

– On all three models, the bezel is entirely paved with brilliant-cut diamonds.

The dazzling diamond setting is extended along the bracelet, enhanced by two larger diamonds placed at 6 and 12 o'clock on the bezel. 

– How does opal go from a stone to a jewellery watch? Well, there's mythology to it. In ancient times, Gyges of Lydia was able to make himself invisible by turning his opal ring. And from the Middle Ages to the Second Empire period, opal left its fiery mark on history, sparking its own myths that have remained to this day. Now that's power. 

– The watches are legit the perfect balance of form and matter. The mesmerising natural white Australian opal offers a spectrum of changing colours and lights – and heaps of emotions. 

A timepiece to invest in? Yep, we think so, too. 

Now, see how this high-end jewellery maker is bringing luxury to the Middle East
