Why Chanel’s First Ever Men’s Watch is Worth the Wait

MAN OF THE HOUR. It was just a matter of time before luxury giant Chanel finally made their way into men’s watches

 

Monsieur de Chanel

 

Lo and behold, 2016 celebrates the debut of Monsieur de Chanel, a brand new line dedicated to the brand’s male clients.

The 40mm elegant timepiece looks understatedly simple on the front, with a big hour at 6 o’clock and a striking retrograde minute at 12 o’clock and a seconds counter in the middle.

This also marks a first for the brand in the conception of an entirely in-house movement, called Caliber 01. Visible through the case-back, the DLC-coated movement is simply hypnotizing and emblazoned with a lion symbol—both the black coating and the animal reference will appear on every in-house Chanel movement.

There are two models on the market as of now: a beige gold (a material exclusive to Chanel) and a white gold version.
