Monsieur Chronosphère Clock

At Coco Chanel's apartment, a glittering crystal ball standing on a three lions base provided the inspiration for a unique high-end clock.

Mademoiselle’s apartment, at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris, provides an endless source of inspiration. Unique pieces and an atmosphere that is frozen in time sparkle the creativity, giving life to exceptional pieces.

Monsieur Chronosphère Clock is one of these, and it represents a new chapter in Chanel‘s watchmaking history.

Monsieur Chronosphère Clock is the epitome of watchmaking excellence and art. A unique decorative object measures the passing of time, framed by the timeless elegance of its black colour.

Black essence and crystal-clear purity.


Black like a mystery to be discovered, Monsieur Chronosphère Clock, with its sharp looks unveils its inner mechanical soul to the admired observer.

Black that is lightened by the purity of its glass sphere, which winks the eye to Mademoiselle’s cherished crystal ball – one of her most favoured objects.

Through this glass ball, the exceptional movement with manual winding is revealed. The contrast between the exquisitely finished black frame and the transparent glass brings lightness and different expressions of volume.

A modern interpretation of Chanel’s heritage.


Monsieur Chronosphère Clock is not only a contemporary take on Coco Chanel’s preferred crystal ball. It also presents another ever-present symbol in Chanel’s creation: the lion.

The clock is in fact supported by four elegant lions, in bronze, graphically designed and represented in their classic dominating pose, with a paw resting on a sphere.

Their black matte finish adds majesty to their attitude.
