Last year, Chanel has launched its first dedicated men’s wristwatch called Monsieur de Chanel. The watch was designed and made completely in-house. Fast-forward to 2017, the iconic French luxury fashion label is back with another men’s wristwatch collection: a limited-edition Monsieur de Chanel in a platinum case and black enamel dial.
Similar to last year’s first edition, the new Monsieur de Chanel boasts all the same mechanics including Caliber 1-powered movement, classic jump-hour movement and a retrograde minute hand. But the biggest differences here comes from the exterior part of the wristwatch. First, the wristwatch features a 40mm platinum case with a sapphire caseback where the wheel movements are entirely visible. Completing the new look of the wristwatch is the black dial made of grand feu enamel, as well as the 240-degree retrograde minute display and a minimalist jumping digital hour display at 6 o’clock.
The limited-edition Monsieur de Chanel will be available only at 100 pieces with a retail price of US$63,000 (RM278,838).
