It’s clear that a lot of thought and care has gone into the design and implementation of the Monsieur de Chanel, also that it could readily go up against lots of the alternatives available in the established watchmakers at this degree. If the luxury houses, and Chanel Watches Australia Prices particularly, continue to produce watches of this caliber, the debate of their validity as watchmakers is most likely to repay in their favor. The Chanel Monsieur de Chanel in platinum with black grand feu enamel dial is now available for $63,000. One of the most fascinating new high-end men’s watches of 2016 is getting a brand new member of its set family in a platinum case with an attractive grand feu enamel dial for 2017. The Monsieur de Chanel (“Chanel Monsieur” because I prefer to call it) is easily one of the most ambitious and appealing haute horology watches produced only for men from Paris-based Chanel. They prefer to remind watch collectors that the concept, instance, and movement were “dreamed from the ground up” and made especially for this specific watch collection. In other words, it’s the most effort Chanel has ever put into a specifically men’s watch collection for serious enthusiasts, and I think it is a beautiful creation.I spend a good deal of time talking about the technical and artistic elements of this Chanel Monsieur watch when debuting it hands here last year during Baselworld 2016. Reference this article to read all about the movement and its complications. I will remind you that celebrated independent Swiss watchmaker Romain Gauthier (who also has his very own brand) is the one who is accountable for actually producing the Calibre 1 mechanical motion components inside of every Monsieur de Chanel watch – which is then constructed by Chanel. This is a good thing for picky watch collectors who wish to make sure the engine in their otherwise fairly timepieces are of a high quality and extend prestige value.
