CHANEL showcases their new collection of watches at Baselworld 2019. Staying true to their brand identity, Chanel has released four unique and sophisticated timepieces: three in black and one in beige-gold with a tweed pattern dial enamel. The brand reinvents their classic timepieces with an added contemporary design.
Monsieur de Chanel
Chanel first presented the Monsieur back in 2016, a watch specifically designed for men.
The details of the timepiece are exquisite: the matte black alligator strap and dial, the Caliber 1 manual-winding mechanical movement with instant hour jumping and 240° retrograde minute, in addition to its three-day power reserve. A new intense black version of the Monsieur with a high-resistant matte black ceramic case will be unveiled this year.
Première Rock Édition Noire
For the past 30 years, the Première has been a signature timepiece: drawing inspiration from the N°5 bottle-stopper and the place Vendôme, the octagonal shape has been fundamental in Chanel’s watch collections.
The new limited edition Première Rock Édition Noire takes a classic and gives it a new contemporary design. With its ADLC-treated strap and case, its black-lacquered dial and intense black colour, this is no typical Chanel watch. The triple row steel chain bracelet is interwoven with black leather and the steel crown is set with a brilliant-cut diamond (~0.05 carat) making the watch as much an effortless fashion statement as it is a functional timepiece that is water resistant up to 30 meters.
Boy∙Friend Skeleton Édition Noire
Redefining the signature octagon shape with its sober, refined design and bold lines, the Boy∙Friend seeks to intertwine elements from the masculine wardrobe with the femininity of this classic timepiece – a tribute to Mademoiselle Chanel herself.
The watch features a shiny black alligator strap and Caliber 3, Chanel’s self-manufactured skeleton movement with manual-winding.
Boy∙Friend Tweed Art Large Size
The second addition to the Boy∙Friend range, the Tweed Art has an 18K beige-gold case and bezel with a tweed pattern dial “Grand Feu” enamel face and onyx cabochon crown. The satin strap and gold ardillon buckle contrast the subtlety of the other pure black watches being released.
