Baselworld 2013: Chanel Mademoiselle Prive with Anita Porchet enamel dial

Chanel-MADEMOISELLE-PRIVC389-COROMANDEL-DIAL-by-Anita-Porchet-281291

At Baselworld 2013 Chanel will unveil the Mademoiselle Privé with Coromandel Decoration. 

Made by noted enameller Anita Porchet, the dial is Grand Feu enamel on a solid 18k gold disc, depicting a motif inspired by Coromandel lacquer screens.  The scene is hand painted miniature enamel and the foliage is made of individually applied 18k gold paillons. The 38.5 mm case is white gold and set with 4.13 carats of diamonds. This is a unique piece and it proves that fashion houses are doing serious timepieces, which I am certain will get even better as more resources are devoted to proper watchmaking. – SJX
