The shape: The Octagon. 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. This year, the Boy∙Friend watch is expanding its universe with new “Grand Feu” enamel Tweed watches and a Fine Watchmaking Skeleton, Caliber 3, in intense black.
