CHANEL’s watch division has been prominent in the women’s market since 1987, but in June 2016, the luxury label is set to launch their first ever watch specifically for men! The Monsieur de Chanel has been five years in the making, the designers took their time to hone the design of a manual-winding mechanical movement called the Calibre 1, a double complication consisting of 170 components.
The 240-degree display allows for the movement, an Instant Jumping Hour and retrograde minute indication, to take place, which means the minute hand jumps to zero at the start of each hour.
The Monsieur de Chanel will be released in a total of 300 examples: 150 in beige gold and 150 in white gold in June 2016.
