Monsieur de CHANEL watch back

CHANEL officially unveiled its first men’s watch at Baselworld this year. If you’re a fan of watches, CHANEL, or both, like I am, you’ll know how much of an exciting debut this is. While the J12 does maintain a covetable unisex appeal, the MONSIEUR de CHANEL is the fashion house’s first watch specially designed for men.

The MONSIEUR de CHANEL is the full expression of CHANEL’s unique vision for a masculine timepiece. Featuring an Instant Jumping Hour and Retrograde Minute, it is also equipped with the CALIBRE 1, the fashion house’s first in-house high-watchmaking movement. The stunning 18K gold case and crown are complemented by a black alligator strap. The case back is also windowed, offering a peek into intricacy of the CALIBRE 1 movement.
