This year, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Première watch, the French House expands once again the parameters of its exclusive vision of Fine Watchmaking, presenting the Chanel Première Camélia Skeleton.
This exceptional piece is equipped with the second in-house Chanel movement, the Calibre 2. Delicate and hypnotic, Chanel’s Calibre 2 presents an entirely skeleton mechanism stylized in the form of a three-dimensional camellia flower.
This skeleton movement in deepest black with optional gem-settings, unique in its genre, thus incarnates one of the iconic symbols of the House.
The form of the bridges, centered and stacked, is inspired by the petals of the flower. The cogs that mark the rhythm of time’s march are also inscribed into this floral spiral, animating the heart of the petals.
Envisaged by the Studio of Creation at Place Vendôme, before being designed, developed, controlled and assembled by the Swiss Manufacturer Châtelain, the Calibre 2 illustrates – in its genes and design – the absolute liberty of the House’s Studio of Creation.
