The Chanel watch, an exceptional accessory.
The reputation of French fashion house Chanel is longstanding and very well-established. Chanel has been at the forefront of haute couture for over a century now, with a style combining elegance and femininity. But clothing is not the only string to the brand's creative bow. Chanel has also excelled itself by injecting its unique style of refinement into leather goods, high jewellery and watches. Their watches, those high-end accessories, have adopted the brand's unique codes and complete an outfit in time-honoured fashion.
There is a watch for every style in the collection.
The story goes that Coco Chanel did not wear a watch herself and that this particular accessory held no appeal for her. The brand's "Première" watch was first launched in 1987 by Jacques Helleu. So much more than a simple watch, it bears more of a resemblance to a precious jewel with its fine, rectangular dial. It met with immediate success and one collection followed another, always with the same ambition of innovating with each new model whilst remaining loyal to the universe of Chanel. As with their leather goods and jewellery, they are particularly fond of using leather and metal chains. As an accessory, a watch is now just as noble and refined as jewellery, in silver or in gold, with diamonds or without, with clean lines or quilted motifs. It becomes an integral part of the look, offsetting to perfection the wrist of the wearer.
