FOR THIS PREMIER MEN’S TIMEPIECE, CHANEL CRAFTS A WATCH MECHANISM THAT REFLECTS
THE HOUSE VALUES OF AESTHETIC AND TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE. THE FIRST MOVEMENT
DESIGNED EXCLUSIVELY BY CHANEL FINE WATCHMAKING SETS THE PLACE WITH POWER AND INNOVATION
– A TRUE MECHANICAL FEAT INSPIRED BY THE SEARCH FOR ELEGANCE AND CREATIVITY.
THE MONSIEUR WATCH IS THE START OF A NEW ERA FOR THE HOUSE OF CHANEL: THE MEN’S ERA.
UNDERSTATED YET DISTINCT, THE WATCH EVOKES THE MOST ENDURING CODES OF THE HOUSE WITH AN
INTERPLAY OF CIRCLES AND STRONG LINES. A STATEMENT OF STYLE BY CHANEL.
"Always remove, never add" is the CHANEL philosophy behind the Calibre 1
mechanism — a perfect accord of technical complexity and aesthetic
purity, and the force behind the inner beauty of the MONSIEUR watch.
The Calibre 1 centers on the black architecture of the movement,
which is accentuated by two skeletonized circular bridges.
The lion, a symbol of strength and personality, accentuates the case back of
the MONSIEUR watch and guards the passing of time with majesty and power.
The lion now also adorns the seal of movements developed in
the Chanel Fine Watchmaking workshops.
Because it emphasizes the essential, black reveals
the beauty and accuracy of the MONSIEUR watch mechanism
and Chanel Fine Watchmaking movements.
A declaration of life, the color red enhances all around it.
The ruby red nuances on the MONSIEUR watch
awaken and intensify the black movement.
AN ICON OF THE HOUSE, THE COMET INSPIRES THE MOVEMENT
OF THE MONSIEUR WATCH EVOKING A MINIATURE COSMOS
IN WHICH EACH GEAR PLAYS A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE.
A jumping hour display framed by the octagonal architecture of Place Vendôme.
An extra-wide retrograde minute display for optimal legibility.
A small second that animates a circular interplay with the minutes.
A unique combination that sparks a private bond between watch and wearer.
Only he who understands can read it. Only he who lives in the moment can master it.
THE LION, AN EMBLEMATIC MOTIF OF CHANEL, MAKES ITS MARK
ON THE STRAP BUCKLE AND THE CROWN. THIS NOBLE AND MIGHTY CREATURE
EMBODIES THE INDOMITABLE SPIRIT OF GABRIELLE CHANEL.
The octagonal architecture of Place Vendôme neatly encases the numerals of
the hour aperture, while its eight sides shape the buckle of the strap,
an echo of the history of CHANEL that is written between Rue Cambon
and the sumptuous Hôtel Ritz Paris.
Gabrielle Chanel loved this color for its natural elegance.
The case of the MONSIEUR watch is made of BEIGE GOLD,
a shade of 18K gold created exclusively by CHANEL.
From 5 to 19, the numerals nod to the heritage of the House of CHANEL.
Hours, minutes and seconds take shape in stylized typography
that lends balance and precision to its digital graphics.
