Sporty and iconic

Description

The Chanel Première is a real jewel on the wrist. The best-known version would surely be this model on a mesh and leather bracelet, designated as the “Iconic Chain” by Chanel. A play of lines and curves between the case and the bracelet whose rounded links, mixed with the leather strap, break with the frank features of the watch.

The faceted case recalls the cabochon of the iconic N°5 fragrance bottle or the outline of Place Vendôme. The braid of links and leather evokes the quilted pattern of the Chanel's emblematic bag. A watch which brings together in itself all the identity and different worlds of Chanel. Become Coco!

Even if the steel attenuates the appearance, it is a fairly dressy watch retaining a certain "rock" style.

How to wear it?

This Chanel Première, with its design which takes up that of Place Vendôme in Paris, perfectly embodies Parisian style: elegance and a touch of madness. The steel makes it an everyday watch that Françoise pairs very easily with jeans and a t-shirt as well as a “little black dress” à la Gabrielle Chanel. A watch that blends easily into any environment. The style of the Première on a steel mesh and leather bracelet will accompany you anywhere!

Why did Françoise choose her?

This side, at once precious, casual and slightly sporty, was able to seduce Françoise. After models in white gold and platinum with leather straps, this steel and leather version brought something different, more casual while remaining very close to Chanel codes. The lines of the case are the same and yet it has the advantage of being a much more accessible model.

History

This watch was imagined by Jacques Helleu and launched in 1987. Taking up the visual codes introduced by Gabrielle Chanel, La Chanel Première has an innovative design inspired by the lines of the N°5 perfume and the outline of Place Vendome. Through its lines and the facets of its sapphire crystal, the Première breaks with the codes of traditional watchmaking. It was such a success that Chanel dedicated its own boutique for it on rue Montaigne in Paris. Only available in three references when it was launched, the model would be the first watch imagined exclusively for women by Chanel.
