The shape: The Octagon. A shape that brings the emblematic and iconic Première watch to mind, as a tribute to the legendary N°5 bottle and to Place Vendôme. A creation inscribed in the watchmaking vocabulary of the House with its sober, refined design, strong lines, and its signature shape. The design is both contemporary and classic, and its angles are polished or satin-finished.

The inspiration: The Masculine. CHANEL takes its first feminine creation, the PREMIÈRE, into masculine territory. The BOY∙FRIEND watch holds within the art of twisting the elements from the masculine wardrobe so dear to Mademoiselle Chanel. With its enigmatic name it doesn’t think twice about shaking up the classic, feminine watchmaking codes.

Floating in its octagonal BEIGE GOLD case, it features a series of interlinked, vertically aligned circles. The mirror-polished BEIGE GOLD chamfering emphasizes the movement’s depth. The bridges are at the back, allowing the watch’s beating heart to stand out.
