The Chanel brand has always stood for luxury and elegance. Founded in 1913 by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, Chanel is now one of the most influential companies in the fashion and cosmetics industry. The company logo with the two opposing "C" is world famous. The brand stands for classic luxury items, but with innovative designs and reinterpreted functionality, it also repeatedly ventures into as yet uncharted territory.
Currently available Chanel watches
Classic and innovative
The company's credo sums it up: "tout changer sans rien changer". To evolve without betraying its original values is what Chanel stands for. In the jewelry and luxury watch segment, Chanel also sets standards in fine workmanship, quality and innovation. Chanel watch models, like the jewelry collection, represent timeless beauty and luxury in perfection.
The Chanel Première - the timeless classic
The Chanel Première model is the pioneer of luxury watches from Chanel. It was presented in 1987 as Chanel's first watch model, has since been issued in many variations and is still an integral part of Chanel's watch collection today. The distinctive octagonal case evokes memories of the bottle cap of the world-famous perfume N°5, which in turn is based on the shape of the Place Vendôme in Paris. In 2013, the model was slightly revised and now has a slightly more elongated silhouette and a more delicate profile compared to the "U(h)rmodel". Older models are very popular with collectors and are hard to come by today. However, the revised model is available in several variants and versions.
The J12 watch model sets new standards
The J12 watch model was introduced in 2000 and enjoyed great popularity right from the start. The high recognition value of this sports watch model makes this watch so sought after. The eye-catching design, a large case and the distinctive watch band give the model an unmistakable aura. Meanwhile, Chanel brought out several variants of this watch model to meet the great demand and different customer needs. But what all models have in common is that they never lose sight of their actual purpose. Thus, Chanel pays special attention to the processing of extremely robust materials for this sports watch model, in order to make this luxury watch also suitable for everyday use to serve its intended purpose.
The Code Coco - the union of simplicity and innovation
One of the more recent creations of the Chanel watch manufacture is the Code Coco model. Watch models from Chanel often break new ground and this luxury watch is no different. Innovative is not only the simple yet eye-catching design, but the closing mechanism of the watch. This is because it is not located on the back of the watch band as usual. It is part of the watch body itself and is incorporated into the design of the watch face in the form of a small cylinder. In horizontal position, it gives a view of the dial with the watch hands. However, if you rotate it 90 degrees, the strap placed over the rectangular frame of the watch can be lifted and opened. The design has no predecessor in the range of Chanel's watch models. It is rather the case, for example, that the closing mechanism described is a tribute to the Chanel handbag model 2.55, which was launched in 1955 and was still designed by Coco Chanel herself.
