( — September 7, 2016) Somers Point, NJ — Bernie Robbins Jewelers, the region’s leading luxury jeweler, is now the only place to see the newly released MONSIEUR de CHANEL.

This year, only 300 uniquely numbered editions were produced, and Bernie Robbins Jewelers is thrilled to have one of these rare watches within its magnificent collection. What makes the MONSIEUR acquired by Bernie Robbins particularly unique is that it is number five in the series, aligning the timepiece with what is one of CHANEL’s most classic, elegant and iconic products, CHANEL No. 5, Eau De Parfum. In fact, the client who purchases this timepiece will also receive their choice of a bottle of CHANEL No. 5 or the masculine, revitalizing CHANEL fragrance for men, POUR MONSIEUR. 

CHANEL released the timepiece, specifically designed for men, at Baselworld 2016 last March. This was a first for the legendary fashion house, as it has historically designed women’s watches exclusively. The MONSIEUR de CHANEL launched to critical acclaim, hailed for its sleek design and nods to CHANEL’s storied history.

This beautifully masculine watch is 40 mm in diameter with an 18k BEIGE GOLD case and crown. It also features an ivory opaline dial and black alligator strap. CHANEL’s classic emblem and symbol, a regal lion head, is found on the watch’s crown, buckle and movement. As with this watch, the lion emblem will be on any watch with a CHANEL in-house movement.    

Manifested over a five-year period, an attribute unique and groundbreaking to this timepiece is the CALIBRE 1 manual-winding mechanical movement. This is CHANEL’s first movement component that is designed, developed and assembled in-house. The hours, minutes and seconds feature contemporary, stylized typography. The MONSIEUR de CHANEL has jumping hour and retrograde minute displays, which are unique timepiece features. An octagonal frame surrounds the numerals of the hour aperture. This shape is inspired by the stunning Place Vendôme, a significant piece of Parisian architecture. The timepiece also features its unique serial number, in this instance No. 5, engraved on the back watch case rim. Only one person will be privileged to own this very special timepiece.   

The MONSIEUR de CHANEL is a blend of tradition and modernity, and is a true testimony of the nobility, reliability and pure refinement of CHANEL. Bernie Robbins Jewelers is proud to be the only authorized CHANEL timepiece dealer within a 100-mile radius, as well as the singular proprietor of the series no. 5 MONSIEUR de CHANEL.
