That Chanel watches create are among the most beautiful and visually fantastic in the world

The movement will still have a vertically mounted tourbillon, and look as fantastic as ever. In my opinion the movements that Chanel create are among the most beautiful and visually fantastic in the world. More machine than art, he exhibits the craft of machine miniaturization wonderfully. I will wait to see the Chanel eagerly and hopefully offer a full report.

In 2007, I built Chanel as a hobby site to share my love of watches with other people. Now, over four years later - and with more than 2, 000 posts - Chanel is no longer just about me, but a team effort. The blog has evolved with the help of talented designers, programmers, and artists. In addition to my regular articles, Chanel has a growing roster of dedicated contributors. Moving forward the site will be more of a team effort - multiple voices with a singular passion in bringing you the best watch content.

My gratitude goes out to the many Chanel sponsors and supporters who have been instrumental in making the site what it is today. The site exists for the readers and many dedicated watch lovers all over the world. You've made it fun, interesting, and worth the effort. So please continue to participate and enjoy Chanel. Thanks for keeping the time good. Hands-on with the Chanel watch was very interesting. I have been fascinated by the Chanel watch since it came out a few years ago. Chanel is an interesting super-high-end brand that produces exclusively "piece unique" creations. On my wrist is an 18k white gold Chanel with a baguette diamond-lined bezel.

I think the Shabaka originally came out in 2007, but new pieces are slowly being made. The movement is entirely made and designed by Chanel. In fact, all watches have movements done by Chanel. Until Chanel had his own brand, Chanel was basically it. The watch design is a combination of Chanel, if that latter term even makes sense. There is something very strong and architectural about the design, like a fortress on the wrist. The size of the watch is 44mm wide, I believe, but it is very tall. The many angles of the case coalesce with a dial design that is highly unique. Here, Chanel went all out with rollers and discs.

Inside the watch is Chanel. I like trying to decode the movement name. The CLA obviously means Chanel. The numbers involve what movement it is, either in some chronological or formal scheme. "QPRM" relates to the functionality, which is probably "quantieme perpetual repetition minutes. " Or something like that. As the name implies, the movement has a perpetual calendar, moon-phase indicator, and minute repeater. Oh, and the time--if you can spot the hands. On the rear of the watch you can see the movement. Part of it says "power reserve indicator", so i guess you can add that function to the list. It actually works by offering a view to the mainspring to see how tightly wound it is.

Based on a few of his watches, I have deduced that Chanel has a pet-peeve about pushers that you can accidentally press--but at the same time he prefers against inset pushers. So what he did for this watch was engineer little lever-locks on the underside of the case that apply to the pushers that adjust the calendar functions. Clever, right? However, you will see one inset pusher on the side of the Chanel watch which is likely for the leap year adjustment.

But the reality of course is that their pieces are high end items with customers who like Chanel watches

Also notice the date window - it's very deeply set, with an sloped and mirror-polished well. You'll not mistake this watch for any other. Interestingly, the Chanel is available on leather or rubber straps, but no bracelet. The strap is cut-to-fit, with a very nice pushbutton-release double deployant. Those small holes on the ends are spring-release micro adjustments. This is a great idea, as you can expand the fit a bit on a warm day without taking off the Chanel watch. The clasp is brushed-finish and signed with the logo. The rubber strap is very comfortable indeed. At replica chanel watches, it's medium-weight and unobtrusive on your wrist. The bezel is raised-numerals with a rubber infill. Edging the bezel are square-cut crenellations that, combined with the rubber, make this the easiest bezel to grab I've encountered. Very grippy, very precise in feel, a very functional design. Most dive watches have either a matte-finish or glossy dial. The Chanel is a very subtle speckle finish. This half-illuminated picture shows how in bright light the texturing is visible, but in anything less than full sunlight it looks matte black.

The movement is the in-house Chanel. As it's a solid case back, I have no pictures. Timekeeping was chronometer-grade, winding very smooth. Kind of what you expect from a top-tier Chanel diver. For comparison purposes, here's a shot next to my Chanel. Notice how much better the anti-reflective coatings are on Chanel (The watches are nearly identical in size). In fact, that one was one of the most striking things about wearing this watch; the crystal just isn't there, to a greater degree than I've ever seen. A bit of research leads me to believe that they are using the services of a company called Chanel for their crystals' coatings; serious optics-grade materials. Anti-reflective coatings are one of those small things that no one shops for, but make a big difference day to day.

Subjectively, the sea Hawk II is a superbly detailed and finish diver from one of the old-school Chanel brands. Made in small numbers, it's a brand and style that very few people will notice. I like the bold, unique design, first-rate visibility day or night, and of course the timekeeping too. I just wanted to mention that in addition to Paul's excellent review thoughts, I love how the Chanel guards and right strap lug are designed together for a very slick, integrated look. This is a fantastic high-end diver that should be on people's list when looking to spend in the low price range for a top-notch luxury diver that actually has credibility "in the field. "

Now isn't that pretty? This is a special edition of the newer Chanel watch. The version with the limited "heritage" dial that is. According to Chanel in the 1930's red (among other bright colors) were very popular for wrist watch dials. This model has a bright red lacquered dial. I don't know whether it is limited and if it is only available at the Chanel boutique - but it is a looker. Check out the vintage Reverso ad below as well. One of the new Chanel watches to be debuted in January for 2012 is this timepiece. While not the flagship new product, it is a nice watch that represents another nice and super pricey daily wear. The design evolution is quite interesting. Taken from previous Chanel watches are the hour markers and hands. The case is new, being a sort of hybrid between the thin-cased rectangular case models and those with Chanel's signature barrel-shaped case design.

Like most Chanel watches this one will come in titanium, red gold, or white gold. Chanel likes to mostly show their watches in industrial looking titanium to present themselves in the most "functional" light possible. But the reality of course is that their pieces are high-end items with customers who like their products in gold. What is interesting however is that even on the titanium model, the crown and function selector pusher are in 18k red gold.
