Recently, Haute Time visited the Chanel Fine Jewellery boutique in Ngee Ann City, Singapore and behold what was uncovered. Beautiful interiors, fascinating books on Chanel and hidden treasures made for unique backdrops for Haute Time’s exclusive photo shoot. The timepieces came alive through our lens.
The Première Flying Tourbillon watch — featuring 18k white gold and rubies — is a unique piece, meaning only one such timepiece is available worldwide and it retails at a price of 512,700 Singapore Dollars.
Coloued silk thread was used to make the “Camélia brodé” dial of the “Mademoiselle Privé” watch. The unique embroidered dial was made by the Maison Lesage, employing the special “needle painting” technique. Never before has Chanel called upon the expertise of the renowned French couture embroiderer Maison Lesage. Of course, this timepiece is aptly numbered and comes in a limited edition of 18 pieces globally. The piece retails for 104,300 Singapore Dollars.
On this version of the Première Openwork Flying Tourbillon watch, baguette-cut diamonds on the 18-karat white gold case highlight the Camellia-shaped flying tourbillon, showcasing an intense black open-worked dial. The strap is made of black satin for a romantic feel and the watch sits beautifully on the wrist, with a “Oh, so Chanel” look. Limited to 12 pieces, the timepiece retails at 459,100 Singapore Dollars.
The watch is powered by an exclusive mechanical movement with manual winding created for Chanel by Renaud & Papi (APRP SA) and comes with 40 hours of power reserve.
The art of mother-of-pearl marquetry marry diamonds in the “Mademoiselle Privé” watch, with a”1932 Soleil” designed dial. The distinct artisanal craft of marquetry enhances the desirability of this timepiece which is available at the boutique for Singapore Dollars 154,200.
