French designer label Chanel in collaboration with the La Maison Lesage have created two new embroidered versions of the Mademoiselle Prive Camelia watches for women who do not want to overwhelm their delicate wrists with big accessories. For nearly a century, La Maison Lesage has created exquisitely embroidered ornaments for the most recognized names in Haute Couture and fashion but never before has the house used their know-how in the creation of a watch dial. What also makes these timepieces truly unique is that this is the first time in watchmaking that diamonds and fine pearls have been embroidered.
Chanel with an approach to design follows the basic principles that are essentially at the heart of feminine spirit: beauty, subtlety and grace. Gold and silk thread embroidery, natural pearls and gold spangles are stitched together to form extraordinary poetic camellia motifs on a deep black silk fabric.
The watch houses a quartz movement displaying the hours and minutes. A black satin strap finishes the watch perfectly, adding a luxurious element to the divine design of the face with an 18K yellow gold buckle set with 80 brilliant-cut-diamonds. It is also water resistant up to 30 meters.
