FINE WATCHMAKING MOVEMENTS

The highest level of watchmaking complications in the name of allure.

CALIBRE 1

"Always subtract, never add back" is the CHANEL Allure philosophy that inspired the Calibre 1. It is 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.
