MADEMOISELLE’S WORKSHOP

The CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio immerses us in the graphic black-and-white world of the rue Cambon ateliers: sewing needles, thimbles, scissors, pins and spools of thread meet those new creations

 

MUSICAL CLOCK COUTURE WORKSHOP

The CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio, inspired by the lively atmosphere in the rue Cambon atelier, orchestrates a choreography of couture busts to the rhythms of “My Woman” by Al Bowlly, a melody that Mademoiselle liked to hum. The chandelier with diamond droplets, the plinth inspired by the upholstered sofa and the gold embellishments all evoke Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment. Mounted on a long gold chain necklace dotted with diamonds is the key for winding the mechanism of this unique piece, in which the time is displayed on tape measure. At once a musical box, a clock and an automaton, this exceptional piece was crafted by the expertise of a large team of highly skilled artisans. From the diamond-encrusted droplets of the miniature chandelier to the meticulously crafted and tuned musical mechanism, this unique creation is a tour de force of technical and aesthetic sophistication.
