Chanel Boyfriend Watch And Boyfriend Black Dial Steel Tweed Collection

CHANEL BOYFRIEND WATCH
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” This famous quote by Gabrielle Chanel also applies to watches. An elegant luxury watch will never be out of fashion. It’s a lifetime investment. At Baselworld 2016, I was invited to see Chanel’s new watch collections. One of my favourite is the BOYFRIEND Watch, a watch with a masculine allure just for women. Its shape? The Octagon. A shape that brings the emblematic and iconic Première watch to mind, as a tribute to the legendary N°5 bottle and to Place Vendôme. 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.

Steel crown and black spinel cabochon. Steel bracelet with tweed pattern and steel folding buckle. High-precision quartz movement. chanel-boyfriend-steel (Above) BOYFRIEND Steel Watch (small size): Steel case (21.5 x 27.9 mm). Steel bezel set with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.37 ct). chanel-boyfriend-paved-beige-gold (Above) BOYFRIEND Paved (Beige Gold): Numbered edition. 18K BEIGE GOLD case (26.7 x 34.6 mm). 18K BEIGE GOLD bezel set with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.71 ct). Dial set with 382 brilliant-cut diamonds (~1.45 ct). 18K BEIGE GOLD crown set with 7 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.05 ct). 18K BEIGE GOLD folding buckle set with 48 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.28 ct). High-precision quartz movement. Also available in 18K white gold.

Tweed is embedded in Chanel’s history. It’s hard to think of the company without its signature tweed jacket. The Boy-Friend Tweed watch is available in two models, a small and a medium size. Pictured is the medium size.

A high-precision quartz movement powers the 26.7 x 34.6 millimeter steel case. The watch functions include hours, minutes and a date, which is seen in a small date window at 6 o’clock. All of this is placed on a steel bracelet with tweed pattern and a steel-folding buckle.

Chanel Boy-Friend Tweed
IMAGE: CHANEL Mention tweed and Chanel immediately comes to mind. It was, after all, Coco Chanel who introduced the seriously proper, thick woven woolly fabric that was once the reserve of English gentlemen to the wardrobes of fashionable women in Paris. Today you’ll see the fabric extensively on Chanel’s signature jackets, on their bags, and there was even a season when tweed appeared on the sneakers that were the talk of the town. Taking it a step even further, and further reinforcing the importance of tweed to the French luxury house, you’ll also find tweed on the latest selection of Boyfriendtimepieces from Chanel. Not the actual fabric of course, but an interpretation of tweed, the watch’s bracelet composed of spun steel wires that are interwoven and then stamped with a tweed pattern. IMAGE: CHANEL The end result? Another beautiful timepiece from Chanel Horlogerie, with a bracelet that not only looks like tweed, but will also sit most comfortably as it adjusts to the natural contours of your wrist. Available in 2 sizes, the larger MM (26.7 mm by 34.6 mm) and the smaller PM (21.5 mm by 27.9 mm), both of which will come with refined steel cases set atop jet black watch dials. For those, however, who prefer a little more bling, there’s the one that comes with a full diamond bezel for maximum brilliance. Now available at the Chanel Fine Jewellery Boutique located within Ngee Ann City, prices start from SGD6500 for the one in PM with the full steel case.

About Chanel The House of Chanel was established in 1909 and has been setting fashion industry standards since. Its founder, Coco Chanel, was an influential designer whose products set an elegant precedence in the Chanel watchmaking sector. Chanel’s watchmaking craftsmanship is a celebrated talent. Most recently, the Maison was awarded the GPHG in Artistic Crafts in 2013 for the Mademoiselle Privé Watch With Embroidered Camellia Decoration. The timepiece features a miniature embroidery, made from silk threads. Each timepiece created was hand-embroidered, thus ensuring each piece was unique.

Tiffany & Co. Tiffany T Square Bracelet With Black Ceramic

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: TIFFANY & CO.

There are bracelets you stack to have the best #wristparty imaginable, and then there are bracelets you can wear on their own and still make a statement. This one, from Tiffany & Co., is definitely one of them. From the much-loved Tiffany Tcollection, this jaw-dropping silver cuff comes ‘dipped’ in 18K gold at the end before it’s finished with black ceramic, for a look that’s not only very sharp, it would be that something special that you can add to your otherwise monochrome wardrobe without looking like you just robbed a pawn shop.

A new arrival that’s priced at SGD2550, there are only a couple of pieces at Tiffany & Co. ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City, so you better move fast to make the T Square Bracelet with black ceramic mine. I mean, yours. Not mine, even though I really want it. Damn it, Alvin, stop blogging and shopping at the same time, ok?

Chanel: 6 Things You Didn’t Know About The J12 (Part 2)

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

Without further ado, here’s Part 2 to Chanel’s 6 Things You Didn’t Know About The J12.

#4 – Its strength is also legendary, and while it isn’t indestructible, it’s pretty strong. Think of the saying ‘it takes a diamond to scratch a diamond’ and you’ll know what I mean. Even more amazing, it all begins with high-grade ceramic power being tipped into moulds that are shaped after the bezel and the links on the watch strap, before being ‘fired’ in a kiln. I didn’t know this myself either, but they shrink by almost 20% during the firing process, compressing the powder and forming the hard ceramic pieces that are then buffed and shined into the iconic components that make up the watch. #mindblown

#5 – The high-tech ceramic J12 also has health benefits because it is hypoallergenic too. Yes, you read that right. Because if one is allergic to metals like nickel, you won’t have any issues with this watch. You might laugh, but with all sorts of allergies being even more commonplace these days, it is another factor to consider when buying a timepiece, especially an expensive one that’s meant to be worn every day. #mindblown

#6 – Last but by no means least, let’s take a look at another key component of any timepiece, the watch strap. Or in the case of the J12, it’s the bracelet that’s also made of ceramic. The first luxury brand to ever use ceramic as jewellery on such a big scale, it’s also scratch-resistant, inert to chemicals and ergonomically compatible. What I’m even more fascinated about is the patented magnetic clasp that took 7 years of research and allows it to ‘spring’ open as and when you need it to. Which is important since no one should ruin their freshly manicured nails while putting on or taking off their watch. #mindblown

And that’s it folks, 6 things you never knew about Chanel’s J12, and if you missed the first part, have a look here via this link. If any of you have more questions regarding the J12 or any of Chanel’s other timepieces for that matter, drop a comment here and I’ll get back to you guys as soon as I can.

Who needs flowers when you have Jaquet Droz’s blooming Lady 8 Flower watch?

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

jaquet-droz-lady-8-flowe-cover_0


Back in 2013, celebrated watchmakers Jaquet Droz created their first ever women’s watch: the feminine and intriguing “Lady 8”, this year the brand is revisiting this classic style and adding a few upgrades. 2016’s Lady 8 Flower features the same figure 8 shape but this time the top dial has been adorned with a flower that literally blooms for the wearer.

jaquet-droz-lady-8-flower
The flower automaton takes the form of a lotus, a flower that symbolises peace in some Asian cultures. Under its sapphire crystal dome, the six petal flower opens up when you press the push-button at 2 o’clock. Gold petals surround a briolette-cut sapphire or ruby which marks the center of the flower.
jaquet-droz-lady-8-flower-or-rose
Meanwhile the actual watch dial is made from white mother-of-pearl. The white gold version has an intricate guilloché sun-ray pattern that we adore. The watch is powered by two movements, one for the flower automaton and one for the actual watch. Both movements are visible through the transparent caseback. The self-winding Caliber 29 watch movement offers a 38 hour power reserve. Also visible through the back is a pirouetting oscillating weight inspired by an accordion pleat motif.

The watch is available in white and rose gold variants and is limited to just 8 units of each. Both versions have cases encrusted with 114 diamonds, but the white gold is our favorite thanks to the charming sunray design on the main dial. An alligator strap in black (for the white gold watch) or brown (for the rose gold watch) complete the timepiece.

Tiffany & Co.: Legendary Style Campaign, Grace Coddington

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGES: TIFFANY & CO.

You’ve seen the Legendary Style campaign, styled by none other than Grace Coddington, who’s a legend in her own right. And with Tiffany & Co., she, with 50 years of fashion experience behind her, took on the role of being the American jewellery house’s first independent creative. And her first order of business? Creating a new campaign for Tiffany’s.

And the inspiration behind the campaign? In her own words, ‘Blue is very extraordinary colour, it’s a very positive colour. I always say why do I love New York? It’s because the sky always blue.’ The colour of New York’s sky, the colour of Tiffany & Co., and also the main colour you see in the ad campaign, which stars the likes of Elle Fanning, Lupita Nyong’o and Christy Turlington Burns.

But today’s post isn’t about the campaign, how luminous the personalities look, or even how how beautiful the jewellery is (we’ve already seen all that, no?). Today’s post is this must-watch short BTS film that stars Ms Coddington at her most charming as she plans the shoot from start to finish, complete with her humble, self-deprecating wit that had me transfixed for the good 10 minutes that it ran.
