Monsieur De Chanel

by

Chanel watches are known for their elegance and durability and this model is no different than the rest. The watches the company produces are more than just beauty watches: they are durable, the strap is made out of the alligator skin, the main material of the dial is 18 karat gold and many more. These are just some of the advantages of the new Monsieur de Chanel.

The first thing you notice about it is the beige 18 karat gold dial which immediately draws you in. The watch comes with two dials: the first one focuses on illustrating the hour and the minutes, while the second one presents the seconds. On top of this, you also have a small squared dial which shows the day you are in. This way, you always know what the time is and the day you are in. This is very useful for those who travel for business purposes and have to deal with time zones. With this new Monsieur de Chanel watch, you will always know what time it is at home so you will know when it is okay to call your wife or children without bothering their sleep.

Looks are not everything on the new Monsieur de Chanel watch. It comes with several very useful functions such as the winding function, which can be performed both mechanically and manually, the reserve function, which shows how much energy the watch still has before you will have to wind it and in this case, one winding can keep the watch going for up to three days and many more.

One very interesting feature of this watch is the jump hour function which may look strange to some but is at the same time revolutionary from a technical perspective. Usual watches work by displaying the time with the use of the two hands. The new Monsieur de Chanel works with disks and in order to store as much energy as possible, the hour hand jumps when the end of an hour is reached. This may be confusing to some, but it actually saves energy and is a very intriguing function!

Last but not the least, another small detail that adds to the beauty of this watch is the lion symbol which you can find on the crown of the watch. Chanel chose the lion as its symbol because it exuberates power and elegance. All in all, the Monsieur de Chanel is a great investment – it’s beautiful, modern and most importantly, it comes with lots of new functions that make your day better!
