Monsieur de Chanel

Not quite tall, but definitely dark and handsome – this is this year’s Monsieur de Chanel in a nutshell. It has shed the ivory dial it made its debut in last year for one in sleek black grand feu enamel, and the beige gold case for a hardier one in platinum. Everything else remains the same: the now iconic 240-degree retrograde minute display, the seconds in a smaller sub dial, and the jumping hour at six o’clock. Turn it over, and Caliber 1, Chanel’s first in-house movement for men, can be admired in all its glory through the exhibition case back. And as if the timepiece needs any more help with upping its desirability, this year’s version is limited to just 100 pieces compared to last year’s 300.
