Chanel is a renowned fashion house, producing perfume, fashion, bags and jewellery. Despite Coco Chanel launching her first shop in 1910, it was not until 1987 under the vision of Karl Lagerfeld that Chanel launched its first wristwatch. Aptly named, the 'Premiere Watch' was designed as a rectangular case with truncated corners, deliberately formed to mimic Paris' Place Vendôme.
In 2000, Chanel launched their first sports watch. The Chanel J12 watch was created for men and women, in a stylish design with futuristic ceramic black finish. Since the launch, J12's have been released in white and chrome, and the piece remains a sought after timepiece at auction.
