Chanel has introduced its first watch designed specifically for men, the Monsieur de Chanel. And it’s amazing.
It’s been five years in the making and not a detail has been missed. It’s a masterpiece, both aesthetically and mechanically.
Eight specialists worked on the timepiece, which features a jumping hour and a retrograde minute. In layman’s terms: the minute hand jumps back to zero at the end of each hour. These features are intricate and beyond difficult to master, so claps to Chanel for nailing them.
Design-wise the face is minimalistic, wrapped in a refined 40mm gold casing. But the real beauty is on the back. The complex 170-piece motor is on display and it’s truly a visual delight.
The watch is super exclusive too, these beauties are limited to only 300 sets (150 in beige gold and 150 in white gold.) The price is set at a huuuuuge $48,500 and $50,800 respectively, but it’s Chanel, what did you expect? You might want to start saving now.
