Chanel - Boy-friend Skeleton

The shape

the octagon. A shape that brings the emblematic and iconic Première watch to mind, as a tribute to the legendary N°5 bottle and to Place Vendôme. A creation inscribed in the watchmaking vocabulary of the House with its sober, refined design, strong lines, and its signature shape. The design is both contemporary and classic, and its angles are polished or satin-finished.

The inspiration

The Masculine. CHANEL takes its first feminine creation, the PREMIÈRE, into masculine territory. The BOY∙FRIEND watch holds within the art of twisting the elements from the masculine wardrobe so dear to Mademoiselle Chanel. With its enigmatic name it doesn’t think twice about shaking up the classic, feminine watchmaking codes.

In 2018, CHANEL presents the BOY∙FRIEND Skeleton. For the first time, the BOY∙FRIEND watch, created in 2015, houses a Fine Watchmaking skeleton movement, the Calibre 3.

After three years of development, this third in-house movement is designed to be beautiful at any angle. Floating in its octagonal BEIGE GOLD case with its bezel set with 66 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.92 carat), the skeleton movement features a series of interlinked, vertically aligned circles. The mirror-polished BEIGE GOLD chamfering emphasizes the movement’s depth. The bridges are at the back, allowing the watch’s beating heart to stand out.
