Chanel is a brand that is synonymous with high fashion and luxury and has been adorned by top women and Hollywood A-listers for what feels like forever. With wardrobe essentials such as the”Little Black Dress”, the iconic Chanel No.5 fragrance and watches such as the Chanel Premiere and J12 watch, it was time to release yet another product the entire world won’t ever forget; the Chanel Boy.Friend watches.
The form of this Parisian chic watch is a definite derivative of Chanel’s original view, the Premiere, in addition to the bottle cap from the Chanel No. 5 perfume that’s still a classic. What exactly makes this watch distinct from the Premiere? Much more importantly, what is the deal with spelling the word’boyfriend’ using a dot in the middle of the word? Why not simply make it’Boy Friend’ in two phrases or hyphenate it such as’boy-friend” or at the very least, like any normal person would do, describe it without any spaces or periods.
The theory according to leading watch connoisseurs is the effort was made to advertise the Chanel watches Boy.Friend watch as the type of watch a young lady would borrow from her boyfriend after a night on the town. Perhaps it was a means to guarantee another date? The opinion size being a larger size in contrast to the feminine Premiere indicates that it is a more manly design compared to the Premiere and therefore her”boyfriend’s watch”.
All nomenclature aside, the watch is unquestionably a woman’s watch with smooth womanly features. The reality is that even though ladies watches are gradually getting bigger in size, the Chanel Boy.Friend is still sized inside quite womanly parameters 28.5 x 37mm in its biggest and the smallest dimensions starting as small as 21.5mm x 27.5mm. The beveled cornered rectangular case is offered at 18kt White Gold, 18kt Rose Gold, Stainless Steel, together with the option of diamonds or no diamonds.
The crown to the Chanel Boyfriend watch is set with an onyx cabochon. There are versions with a black guilloche dial in addition to models with a silver opaline guilloche dial. Some models have a date at the 6 o’clock position while others have a seconds subdial. Whichever it’s that you pick, these are sleek looking watches with a timeless look that can be viewed looking just as smart ten years from today.
