Chanel has dropped a new limited edition of its men’s jumping hour Monsieur watch with a black marble dial.
The French fashion house’s watchmaking department, Creation Studio, created the Monsieur in 2016 as the brand’s first dedicated men’s watch. The watch also featured the brand’s first in-house movement, the manually wound Calibre 1 developed with the help of independent watchmaker Romain Gauthier, with Chanel buying a stake in his eponymous atelier.
The watch’s dial made a feature of its jumping hour window, small seconds and a 240 degree retrograde minute arc.
The new Monsieur Marble Edition uses a matte black ceramic case, stainless steel crown with a dial of white-veined black marble. The 55-piece limited edition is supplied on a black alligator-pattern calfskin strap and is available via Chanel, priced £27,500 GBP ($38,280 USD).
