A Chopard timepiece in Quentin Tarantino’s latest feature film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Chopard and film-making are caught up in a never-ending love story, as illustrated by the Maison’s elegant appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The lead role is played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who wears a classic, timeless watch crafted by Chopard.
While Chopard is known as the Red Carpet Jeweller, the Maison’s timepieces are also in great demand among many actors, such as Colin Firth, Christoph Waltz and Richard Madden, for both their public appearances as well as when performing in feature films. In Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Chopard finds its way onto the wrist of hero Rick Dalton, the lead role played by Leonardo DiCaprio, winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2016.
In this historical drama, Rick Dalton is a TV actor who sets out with his understudy on a wild odyssey to make a name for himself in the Hollywood film industry. On his wrist is an elegant Chopard Classic watch in 18-carat yellow gold with a mechanical manual-winding movement, equipped with a white dial bearing gilded hour-markers. It embodies all the charm of the 1970s, perfectly recreated in this ninth film by Quentin Tarantino. A truly timeless creation that transcends classic aesthetic codes.
The film, screened in official competition at the latest edition of the Cannes Film Festival – to which Chopard has been an official partner since 1998 – will be released in American theatres on July 26th, and then on August 14th in the United Kingdom and France.
