Camélia Brodé Dual Time Watch

Montre Camélia Brodé Dual Time
Because she loved its delicate elegance, Mademoiselle Chanel made the camellia her favorite flower. Three symbolisms are combined in this watch: the design of the camellia, the romanticism of the “you and me” style and the mystery of a secret watch.

The 18K white gold case of the watch is set with 956 brilliant cut diamonds F/G VVS (11.44 cts) and 1 brilliant-cut diamond F VVS1 (0,39 ct). Camellia motifs hide two white mother of pearl dials that enable to keep the time in two time zones. The watch is powered by a quartz movement that displays hours and minutes.
The 18K white gold bracelet, set with brilliant-cut diamonds offers a safety push-piece clasp system.

Mademoiselle Privé Camélia Brodé Watch

With the Mademoiselle Privé Collection embroidered by Maison Lesage, Chanel unites the fine art of embroidery with the high craft of the master watchmaker. For almost a century, the house of Lesage has been producing embroidery for the major names in haute Couture and Ready-to Wear. For the first time, the expertise of Lesage has been applied towards the creation of a watch dial. Each embroidery is unique, expressing the gestures of the embroideress throughout her meticulous process.

The dial’s design is produced with an embroidery technique called  'needlework painting' (peinture à l'aiguille), using threads of different colors (not with multi-colored threads). The embroidery technique produces different shades of color in the camellia design, created on black fabric.

Mademoiselle Privé Camélia Brodé
The 18K white gold case is set with 562 brilliant-cut diamonds (~3.07 carats). The hands are in 18K white gold, as the crown, also set with an onyx cabochon.
The automatic movement offers 42 hours of power reserve and shows hours and minutes.
The satin bracelet is equipped with an ardillon buckle set with 80 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.48 carat).
