Chanel uses the color that Ms. Chanel loves in 2019-the extreme deep black, and exerts unlimited creativity to launch a new Boy Friend skeleton watch, which reflects Chanel’s vision of fine watchmaking: simplicity and perfection And modern.
Chanel first released the Boy Friend watch series in 2015. Its octagonal shape is reminiscent of the classic and symbolic Première watch. It also pays tribute to the legendary N ° 5 perfume bottle cap and Fontaine Place. The brand interprets the design through its watchmaking vocabulary with simple and exquisite, sharp lines and representative shapes. Combined with polished or satin-polished corners, the design is both modern and classic.
The BOY · FRIEND black skeleton watch is made of shiny black high-tech precision ceramic material and shiny black alligator leather strap, which perfectly interprets the extreme deep black.
The new Boy ∙ Friend is equipped with the brand’s third self-made caliber 3, Caliber 3, which perfectly balances the case and the movement. All the elements of the watch revolve around the characteristics of Boy ∙ Friend, and the movement must also perfectly echo the line design of the watch. Reinterpreting masculinity in the field of fine watchmaking: it will generally be the hollow movement design of men’s watches, and it will fully reflect the architectural structure with unique overall parts such as the bottom plate, bridge and gears.
The design of the hollow movement is integrated with the face plate, which is simple and pure. It perfectly presents the movement from the technical point of view.
Deep black movement, bold comparison, and challenging aesthetic technology. The finely stacked carbon black movement like lace is mirror polished, chamfered, carbon black gear trains such as torque and power reserve, full and drilled. Balance wheel and openwork barrel. Because there is no obvious support point, the arc structure outlines the floating vision, and the side of the dial is presented in an invisible manner, and the bridge screws are not seen.
The design of the hollowed-out movement is integrated with the face plate, which is minimalist and pure. It perfectly presents the movement from a technical point of view, all details are beautiful inside and outside the body. The movement design of the building structure, the base plate and the bridge explain the unique modern aesthetics of the watch, which are already indispensable elements in the continuous planning of Chanel fine watchmaking.
Caliber 3 continues the hollow out concept of Caliber 2. The wheels are arranged in a straight line, making the hollow more transparent.
This work is designed for women who have the courage to create their own style, instead of following the current, to subvert the existing female code, to be loyal to being different from others, and to transcend gender. The masculine elements are used to show the feminine beauty. The hands rotate with the passage of time rather than the digital time scales; the octagonal design eliminates the complicated decoration, leaving only the neat lines of the watch. Pass the masculine or feminine gender barrier through playful rustic aesthetics.
