Chanel takes a minority stake in Montres Journe SA
Chanel strengthens its role in prestigious Watchmaking by taking a minority stake in Montres Journe SA. This move, initiated in 1998 with Bell & Ross and in 2011 with Romain Gauthier, is part of the desire to preserve and develop expertise and to support independent watchmakers who share the same values as Chanel. Located in the heart of Geneva, Montres Journe SA designs, develops and produces every single movement, case and watch face. The production is deliberately limited to 900 watches a year. Chanel’s stake will enable Montres Journe SA to continue its development by ensuring its sustainability, as well as its autonomy.
