Les Éternelles de Chanel, Signature Grenat watch has won the Jewellery Watch Prize during the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG). This is the third time that Chanel receives such a recognition.
Les Éternelles de Chanel started as a fine jewellery capsule collection, to gain and maintain a stable place through the addition of more pieces over the years.
This fine jewellery watch in particular, awarded with the Jewellery Watch Prize at the GPHG, explores one of the Maison’s most iconic motifs, quilting, here applied and worked through the juxtaposition of diamond squares enhanced by orange sapphires.
Built as an embroidered cuff, this 18-carat white gold fine jewellery watch has at its centre an exceptional 52,61-carat carmine garnet, that opens up to reveal the rounded square watch’s face, set in diamonds.
The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, celebrating excellence of worldwide horological production, annually rewards the finest creations and most important operators in the watchmaking industry.
Chanel is honored by this prize, which confirms the recognition of that “savoir-faire” that has always been at the heart of its creative process.
