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 http://www.tmfworx.com/ 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.
