Drawing inspiration from the majestic Alps and the precision of an eagle’s eye, Swiss luxury brand Chopard showcases a masterclass in watchmaking with its latest masterpiece: the Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF. This exclusive timepiece is limited to just 250 units.
Crafted with meticulous precision, the Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF boasts a modern and sporty-chic 41mm-diameter case. This limited-edition timepiece houses Chopard’s high-frequency automatic movement, one of its most advanced movements yet.
Setting a new standard for accuracy and stability in the world of luxury watchmaking, the brand’s experimentation with said movement first materialized with its 2012 L.U.C. 8HF model. The brand’s 2017 Superfast Power Control Porsche 919 and 2021 Alpine Eagle Cadence also carry the same technology.
While the majority of mechanical wristwatches typically have a ticking rate ranging from 2.5Hz to 4Hz, high-frequency movements operate at a brisk 5Hz.
Elegance and comfort
A watch for people who value sophistication while living an active lifestyle, Chopard’s Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF is an epitome of form and function. The timepiece captures the essence of modern luxury — from its precision-cut facets to its elegant dial — all while offering the comfort of titanium. The metal is known for its strength and being lightweight.
Whether worn in the boardroom or on an Alpine adventure, this titanium-made watch is a true standout symbol of success, assertion, and refined taste.
A modern take on an iconic watch
The Alpine Eagle Cadence 8HF marks another milestone release for the model. This model traces its roots to the ‘80s Chopard St. Moritz.
About four decades ago, Chopard Co-President Karl-Friedrich Scheufele intended to create a no-ordinary steel watch. He wanted to tailor it to the refined yet dynamic Swiss town of St. Moritz. After successfully persuading his father to turn the idea into reality, the brand introduced the iconic St. Moritz model.
Today, the quintessential sporty-chic timepiece gets a new life in the form of the Alpine Eagle. The modern reinterpretation of the said model upholds the same underlying philosophy. The collection first landed in the luxury sports watch scene in 2019.
