Chanel Mademoiselle’s imagination
“Mademoiselle Privé” refers to a collection of precious watches offering a reminder of the symbols and objects that Mademoiselle Chanel cherished.
The studio door of Gabrielle Chanel – otherwise known as Coco Chanel or Mademoiselle, carried a sign reading “Mademoiselle Privé”. This label now refers to a collection of precious watches offering a reminder of the symbols that the designer cherished or the objects with which she loved to surround herself. Chanel opens the doors to her imaginary world for us through a poetic collection in which artistic crafts sublimate watchmaking.
On the midnight blue dial of the Moon and Comet dial, the hours appears as 12 diamond hour-markers set on a sapphire crystal ring, floating above a long moon-tipped hand. In the centre, a curved comet ticks away the minutes while following the contours of an aventurine (goldstone) dome. This Mademoiselle Privé, powered by an automatic movement, features a white gold case enhanced with diamonds on the bezel and a cabochon-cut onyx on the crown.
