So pretty… at first glance, a bracelet that sparkles around the wrist – like a precious jewel. CHANEL is bringing new meaning to the term «timepiece» with the latest addition to its watch family: CODE COCO. The name derives from the idea to be intriguing, with parts that are working together to cleverly reveal different design elements, much like a code.
Inspired by the iconic CHANEL 2.55 purse, the new jewelry watch is available in stainless steel or white gold with diamonds. It closes with a click like the quilted bag, created by Mademoiselle Chanel in February 1955, whose clasp adorns the heart of the watch’s dial.
This swivel clasp can be positioned horizontally or vertically, masking or revealing the time as the wearer pleases. The flexible steel strap also features the iconic quilted motif – a signature of the French Maison.
The CODE COCO watch above all stands out with the way that it fastens around the wearer’s wrist. Rather than using a classic folding clasp, this timepiece furls around the wrist until its two ends meet. In fact, the watch bezel – available in steel or studded with diamonds – is located at one end of the strap, which curls around the wrist to encase the dial at the other end, fastening the watch closed with a click.
A tribute to a story, style and look, the CODE COCO watch carries the ever-renewing codes of CHANEL. Definitely on my wish list…
