The world’s most famous jewellery and watch brands presented their new design at the yearly Basel World fair in Switzerland last month, including iconic French style house Chanel.
For 2019, the Chanel Premiere collection greets its newest member, Premiere Velours, at the show, an amazing timepiece featuring an eighteen-carat yellow gold case with a velvet black-touch rubber strap.
The minimalist, latest reinvention of the Premiere classic, made in 1987, is also provided with a dial with 116 amazing-cut diamonds.

The Premiere collection also contains the Premiere Midnight in Vendome series, which strikes a balance between high jewellery and horology. These one-of-a-type pieces contain an eighteen-carat yellow gold-cuff watch decorated with faceted onyx beads, Japanese cultured pearls, and square motifs set with amazing-cut diamonds.
Among this collection is the Mademoiselle Privé sautoir, a special long chain necklace that echoes the imaginative depictions on those commanding Coromandel screens, with sculpted eighteen-carat beige gold and fifty amazing-cut diamonds.
