Chopard was founded in 1860 in Sonvilier by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, originally known for making ladies’ watches and pocket watches. Chopard’s extraordinary timepieces helped build a reputation of reliability and quality for Swiss-made products. Early on, Chopard won two very prestigious commissions: becoming one of the official providers of watches for «Tir Fédéral» and the Swiss Railways. Between 1970 and 1980, the jewellery industry equivalent of an “Oscar” was annually awarded by German professionals: the Golden Rose of Baden-Baden. Chopard won 15 trophies during this decade, including one for the Happy Diamonds jewellery watch in 1976.
