Every Year Chanel Has A Hard-to-find Limited Edition. What New Things Have Come Out This Year?

Every year Chanel launches several unique timepieces, which will become the most eye-catching scenery at the Basel Watch Fair. These works are unique in both craftsmanship and design, and they have become the focus of discussion.
   Last year was a lion, and this year became a toad?

Chronosphère clock created by Chanel in collaboration with Swiss watchmaker L’ Epée

The Chanel Monsieur de Chanel pocket watch style released at Baselworld 2018 can be disassembled and converted into a clock. The base is equipped with a sculpture of a lion and uses the Calibre 2.2.

   Ms. Chanel is a Leo, and male lions appear very frequently in Chanel’s work. Chanel’s male lion is a little bit British and has its own queen flavor. At Baselworld 2018, Chanel exhibited a clock and a pocket watch with double-conversion clockwork. The black male lion became an important support for the base of the clock, showing a post-modern Baroque style, and a dark low-key luxury produced a mysterious appeal.

CHANEL PREMIÈRE MIDNIGHT IN VENDÔME clock with ring

  This year, Chanel broke the norm and incorporated the oriental image of toad into watch design. If the lion represents the sun, the toad is often given the meaning of the ‘moon’ in Eastern and Western myths, and in China, it is a beautiful symbol of ‘fortune’. The 18K yellow gold toad on this clock is set with 2 topaz and 812 brilliant-cut diamonds, the ring is set with 1 yellow sapphire, 46 brilliant-cut diamonds, 2 baguette-cut diamonds and onyx, base Covered with ebony boards and obsidian blocks and surrounded by 18K yellow gold, it is surrounded by 236 brilliant-cut diamonds for luxury. This is priced at 1.2 million Euros, and I guess it will be bought by some families or entrepreneurs as the treasure of the town.
   Is it jewelry or a watch?
