Chopard Steals The Spotlight In South Korean Drama, 'Crash Landing On You'
Crash Landing On You, currently showing on Netflix, is good. And we mean, really good. So good that it has set a new record for the second-highest viewership in South Korean cable history.
And if you have watched it, you will have no doubt noticed—in between bouts of tears and laughter—that stars Hyun Bin and Son Ye-jin (who might be dating, by the way…) wore really cool wrist candies by Swiss watchmaker Chopard.

Ye-jin plays South Korean heiress Yoon Se-ri, who tries to pawn her Happy Sport watch in episode five. Unfortunately for her, the limited edition fetches just a few dollars when the broker insists on valuing its worth by weight. (This guy clearly doesn’t know his watches, say all Bvlgari Octo Finissimo owners.)
As Ye-jin parts with her 2018 model, which was launched to celebrate the Happy Sport’s 25th anniversary, she notices another Chopard on display: an Alpine Eagle, which was first unveiled late last year.
Made from solid Lucent Steel A223, an alloy that's exclusive to Chopard and 50 per cent more resistant than conventional steel, this chunky timepiece comes with a super-trendy integrated bracelet, which is set to be the biggest watchmaking trend for 2020.
Both timepieces reappear later on in the series and take on new meaning. So be sure to watch until the very end.
