French luxury goods brand Chanel unveils the new Premiere Fly Tourbillon lady watch. The Premiere was the first watch created by Chanel in 1987. Its shape was inspired by the octagonal geometry of the Place Vendome in Paris and echoed in the No. 5 perfume bottle stopper.
Last year, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Chanel created the Premiere Flying Tourbillon to offer women the opportunity to enter into the realm of high mechanical complications. This tourbillon has been developed in close collaboration between Chanel and the Swiss master watchmakers Renaud & Papi (APRP SA) - the advanced research and development branch of Audemars Piguet.
Last year, for the first time, Chanel Premiere Flying Tourbillon was voted as the best ladies watch at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve, the watch industry's most prestigious awards ceremonies. This high feminine, flying tourbillon watch is created in 18k white gold set with 169 brilliant-cut diamonds and black high-tech ceramic bezel. It is decorated with the motif of the camellia, a tribute to the founder Coco Chanel's favourite flower. Having no upper bridge, the carriage decorated with a camellia appears to be rotating in a weightless state.
