In 2020, the CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio is presenting the MADEMOISELLE PRIVÉ BOUTON collection, which pays homage to an essential component of Gabrielle Chanel's stylistic world: the button.
Taking her inspiration from military clothing and from sailor's uniforms, Gabrielle Chanel paid particular attention to the button motifs, which presented a wide variety of ornamental designs.
The button became more than a fastening, preciously punctuating her suits and becoming a hallmark of the CHANEL style.
The button of this watch is adorned with an exceptional South Sea cultured half pearl that has an exceptional diameter of 15 mm. It is encircled by an 18K yellow gold cord set with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds (~ 0.46 carat) which conceals an 18K white gold dial set with 142 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.52 carat).
This button fastens a black and gold tweed cuff with a black calfskin lining highlighted with golden leather braid.
