New Chanel Premiere Watch
I was pretty excited when I saw these two Chanel watches. Either the black or the white will be timeless and classically Chanel so there is really nothing to dislike from the image. So being a curious sort of gal, I just had to see for myself how each would look on my wrist. I was able to try the white one and to be honest I was slightly disappointed. Don't take me wrong, it is still a classic watch in design as it is inspired by the Chanel No. 5 bottle. And, there are lots of little diamond blings which a gal just can't say no as we all know diamonds are our BFF. With these being said, I was amazed the the size of the watch, it was, how should I put it, rather small. Savvy Mom commented she would need a magnifying glass to look at the time. I guess she is not going to buy the watch so I can borrow any time soon, uh! To give you an idea of the size, I would say the watch face is about the size of my thumb nail. I might even guess the width maybe be slightly more narrow and the length slightly longer, but you get the idea. The band is made of matted satin and the watch is stainless steel with pave diamonds for accent. The retail price is $3850 which is not terrible for luxury watches but I don't think I will be buying this piece in the near future because it is too plain as a jewel watch but slightly too delicate for my taste as a day watch. What do you think?
