After taking care of the ladies since the inception of the Maison, Chanel now presents the Monsieur, its first men’s timepiece, in a completely newly designed case created specially to house Calibre 1, the House’s first in-house high-watchmaking movement. Neither the watch nor its movement existed before; they were the well-thought, fine result of a vision, a desire, a dream.
Monsieur de Chanel’s exclusive, manual-winding mechanical Calibre 1 features Instant Jumping Hour and Minute Retrograde and is formed of 170 components. A contemporary movement that still respects watchmaking traditions, the Calibre 1 with its double complication, took five years to develop, a testament to its nobility and reliability.
This year the Maison will produce 300 numbered movements of which half will be housed in the Monsieur in Beige gold and the other in the white gold model. Chanel has embodied its vision of a beautiful, masculine timepiece with technical excellence in the Monsieur. A watch for the stylish man.
