CHANEL PREMIERE CAMELLIA SKELETON

From 23 to 30 March 2017, all eyes will be focused on Baselworld, the world’s most important showcase for luxury watches and jewels. Among the most prestigious luxury brands showcasing their luxury timepieces is Chanel.

The Première was the first watch created exclusively by Chanel for women; drawing on the shape of the N°5 bottle stopper and the Place Vendôme in Paris. Unlike anything before, this timepiece, destined for women and defining a uniquely feminine style, was not a simple reworking of a man’s watch.

This year, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Première watch, Chanel delights fine watchmaking lovers with the magnificent Première Camellia Skeleton. This exceptional piece is equipped with the second in-house Chanel movement, the Calibre 2, whose ethereal geometry sketches out the shape of a Camellia flower. This skeleton movement in deepest black with optional gem-settings incarnates one of the iconic symbols of the House. Envisaged by the Studio of Creation at Place Vendôme, before being conceived, developed, controlled and assembled by the Swiss Manufacturer Châtelain, the Calibre 2 illustrates the absolute liberty of the House’s Studio of Creation.
