For this first men's timepiece, CHANEL crafted a watch mechanism worthy of its values on design and technology.
A premier fine watchmaking movement that sets its own commanding innovative pace.
A true mechanical feat inspired by a quest for style and art.
THE MONSIEUR WATCH IS THE START OF A NEW ERA FOR CHANEL HAUTE HORLOGERIE.
THE MEN’S ERA. AN UNDERSTATED YET DISTINCT WATCH, AN INTERPLAY BETWEEN LINES AND CIRCLES
ECHOING THE MOST ENDURING HALLMARKS OF CHANEL. UNMISTAKABLE CHANEL STYLE.
“Always remove, never add” is the CHANEL philosophy that
inspired the Calibre 1. A journey to find artistic purity backed by
technical excellence – the powerhouse behind the Monsieur watch's
inner beauty. The Calibre 1 is a mechanical work of art accentuated by
two round skeleton bridges deeply entwined into the black movement.
The back of the Monsieur watch is marked with the lion's seal.
It guards the passing of time in all its majesty and power.
It is also now the seal for CHANEL Manufacture movements.
The quintessential CHANEL colour, black is all about true essence.
To accentuate the mechanism's beauty and precision, it was the obvious
choice for Chanel Fine Watchmaking movements.
THE COLOUR OF LIFE, RED BRIGHTENS ALL THE COLOURS AROUND IT.
THE RED RUBIES ON THE MONSIEUR WATCH
AROUSE AND INTENSIFY THE BLACK MOVEMENT.
A CHANEL ICON, THE COMET ADDS INSPIRATION
TO THE MONSIEUR WATCH MOVEMENT LIKE A MINIATURE COSMOS
WHERE EACH GEAR PLAYS A CRUCIAL ROLE.
A jumping hour framed by the octagonal architecture of Place Vendôme.
An extra-wide retrograde minute display for maximum legibility.
A small second hand that animates a circular interplay with the minutes.
An unconventional mingling that sparks a private bond between watch and wearer.
Only he who understands it can read it. Only he who lives in the moment can master it.
THE CHANEL EMBLEM, THE LION LEAVES ITS IMPRINT
ON THE BUCKLE, CROWN AND MOVEMENT, MAJESTIC AND WILD,
IT EMBODIES THE FORCE OF THE CHANEL SPIRIT.
Place Vendôme's octagonal design frames the hour aperture.
Eight sides that also shape the buckle, a nod to the history of CHANEL
played out between The Ritz Paris and Rue Cambon.
GABRIELLE CHANEL LOVED BEIGE FOR ITS NATURAL ELEGANCE
THE MONSIEUR WATCH CASE IS MADE OF BEIGE GOLD,
AN 18K ALLOY CREATED BY CHANEL.
From 5 to 19 these numbers pay tribute to the CHANEL Heritage.
The hours, minutes and seconds tick by on the Monsieur watch in typography
that lends balance and mathematical precision to its digital graphics.
