World-renowned luxury jewellery and wristwatch manufacturer, Chanel, have always had one ambition driving the core of the company forward - to create a whole new and unique approach to time reading for their male and female audiences. The codes of time are renewed with every innovation, yet French elegance combined with traditional manufacturing techniques is a fine blend that has always been at the heart of Chanel’s growth. Each timepiece has evolved from the success of the very first creation back in 1986 and will appeal to a slightly different individual depending on tastes and personality.
The Premier watch was the first ever creation by Chanel. The first model was completed in 1987 and features an octagonal shaped case with clipped corners for a unique aesthetic. The shape of the case is also inspired by the cabochon shape of the No5 perfume bottle. Soon after, the J12 watch was born. Representing day and night – femininity and masculinity – black and white, the versatile collection gave rise to a new colour of ceramic. The Chanel BOY.FRIEND watch collection was created in 2015 – a line if timepieces with strong masculine style but intended solely for the lady. Perfect for the “tomboy” or the “girl next door” look, these iconic wristwatches remain at the centre of modern day fashion thanks to their versatile design.
Many Chanel watches incorporate the use of gemstones and diamonds to add a lavish touch to lady’s attire, whilst others are sleek and sophisticated – perfect for the business or woman. The Chanel Premier watch with mother of pearl dial is a gorgeous addition to any ladies jewellery and watch collection. The design ethos of the Premier collection is to remain simple and easy to read, whilst allowing feminine elements to shine through the design. The watch is quartz operated and fitted with a polished stainless steel bracelet with links that overlap one another to create a jewellery bangle effect.
The Chanel J12 365 watch crafted from black ceramic and steel is a bold and confident design from the iconic J12 watch collection. The bezel has been adorned with 69 round brilliant cut diamonds. The silvered Arabic numeral around the dial jump out from the luxurious black dial. The sublime diamond set sub seconds scale is a focal feature for the entire design, adding a unique sparkle to the wrist, whilst the immaculately plusher black ceramic bracelet is sleek and refined. The watch is powered via an automatic movement with a 42 hour power reserve. It sits inside a robust 100 meter water resistant casing which offers the perfect protection whilst the lady takes part in light water sports.
The Chanel BOY.FRIEND Tweed watch is unusual looking with its stylish stainless steel bracelet with tweed motif. The simple black dial with two silvered hands on a rich black background is both simple and classic. The rectangular shaped case with subtly clipped corners creates an octagonal shape on the wrist for a contemporary finish to any outfit.
