Launched in 1987, the Première was the first watch created by Chanel. Its shape was inspired by the octogonal geometry of the Place Vendôme and echoed in the N°5 perfume bottle stopper.
On the occasion of the Première's 25th anniversary, Chanel launched the Première Flying Tourbillon. This timepiece was developed in close collaboration between Chanel and the Swiss manufacturers, engineers and master-watchmakers Renaud & Papi (APRP SA).
The 2014 Première Flying Tourbillon is in 18K white gold set with 169 diamonds (~4.40 cts) and 63 pink sapphires (~4.27 cts). Its dial is in polished white high-tech ceramic.
This edition is limited to 20 pieces.
