Interview Arnaud Chastaingt, Director of the Chanel Watchmaking Creation Studio
On the occasion of the 2022 edition of WATCHES & WONDERS, that took place in Geneva from March 30 to April 5, 2022, Arnaud Chastaingt, Director of the CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio presented this year's watchmaking novelties.
You have decided to bring Mademoiselle and the J12 together again this year: could you tell us something about this?
The "Mademoiselle J12" story was born in 2017. From that first encounter a concept emerged, a story that still inspires me. Mademoiselle J12 La Pausa is a fresh interpretation that takes Gabrielle Chanel away from Rue Cambon - a symbol of her life in Paris - to La Pausa, her villa on the French Riviera. A place where she loved to welcome her friends in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. It is in this spirit that the J12 welcomes the silhouette of Mademoiselle, dressed in a Breton top and sailor pants. For the first time, the Mademoiselle J12 is equipped with the Caliber 12.1, in an exclusive all-black version. Until now the encounter between the J12 and Mademoiselle Chanel remained a unique occasion, this year it becomes a rendez-vous in its own right. In 2022, we are thus unveiling three new creations. With the J12 Gabrielle Caliber 3.1, pride of place is given to the iconic silhouette of Gabrielle, dressed in black and wearing her beloved pearls. The openwork dial creates a graphic effect on multiple levels: first in combination with the hands, then with the profile of Gabrielle in the background and finally with the movement. A true keeper of time, Mademoiselle strikes a pose in a painting within a precious frame composed of a white gold bezel set with baguette-cut diamonds. In a lighter and more playful tone, a figurine with a stylized effigy clings mischievously to the case of the Mademoiselle J12 XS watch. Mademoiselle is true to herself and exquisite as ever. Her silhouette, entwined in white gold and black lacquer is topped off with a two-tone straw hat accentuated with a diamond.
