Chanel takes us on a captivating journey where fashion meets watchmaking with their stunning Chanel Couture O'Clock watch capsule collection presented at the Watches and Wonders 2024. Inspired by the legendary Rue Cambon couture workshops, this collection is a love letter to Gabrielle Chanel's heritage.

Imagine iconic Chanel watches adorned with the delicate details of a dressmaker's world. Think thimble motifs, bobbin accents and pin designs adorning these timeless pieces. This 20-piece Couture O'Clock collection is a delightful conversation starter, a testament to the brand's ability to translate their dressmaking prowess into the realm of horology.

The centerpiece of the collection is undoubtedly the J12 Automaton Caliber 6. This exceptional diamond-encrusted masterpiece houses the new in-house Caliber 6 movement, a marvel of engineering. With a simple button press, its 355 components come alive, bringing a miniature Mademoiselle Chanel to life in a breathtaking display. This exquisite timepiece embodies the perfect balance of design and watchmaking expertise, crafted with the finest materials and meticulous attention to detail.

For fans of the Première collection, Chanel's first iconic watch design, the Couture O'Clock collection offers two new interpretations.
