Chanel Première Camélia Skeleton
Chanel presents a skeleton movement inspired by the camellia flower.
This year, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Première watch, Chanel once again the parameters of its exclusive vision of Fine Watchmaking, presenting the Première Camélia Skeleton.
This exceptional piece is equipped with the second in-house Chanel movement, the Calibre 2, whose ethereal geometry sketches out the shape of a camellia flower. This skeleton movement in deepest black with optional gem-settings, unique in its genre, thus incarnates one of the iconic symbols of the House.
Envisaged by the Studio of Creation at Place Vendôme, before being designed, developed, controlled and assembled by the Swiss Manufacturer Châtelain, the Calibre 2 illustrates – in its genes and design – the absolute liberty of the House’s Studio of Creation.
The Première Camélia Skeleton is produced in three editions, one composed of a black leather strap with a bezel set with 104 brilliant-cut diamonds and another edition whose bracelet is the same but the dial is set with baguette-cut diamonds. The latest model limited to 12 pieces is entirely set, with the white gold bracelet being composed of 282 diamonds.
All dressed with a mechanical self-winding movement, their power reserve is about 48 hours. The form of the bridges, centered and stacked, is inspired by the petals of the flower. The cogs that mark the rhythm of time’s march are also inscribed into this floral spiral, animating the heart of the petals.
Through her life, Gabrielle Chanel embodied strength, character and a fierce desire for independence. Maison CHANEL, avant-garde and constantly innovative, has come down through the decades to become an unmistakable symbol of distinction, elegance and refinement.Find out more >
