When reading the December issue of In Style magazine, I was surprised to see a watch with a rubber strap amid their selections for evening watches. Rubber for dress? I had actually not considered it before, but I must say that I’m liking the idea. When I first saw this photo, I didn’t even realize the Chanel watch had a rubber strap, as it blends in so effortlessly with the others. It seems to hold its own amidst the other watches.
If you’re not familiar with Chanel’s Premiere watch, let me fill you in a bit. It was the first watch ever from Chanel, launching in 1987. The shape of the watch is based on the shape of Place Vendome. Here’s an ariel shot which really shows the outline. It’s also the shape used as the stopper in a bottle of Chanel No.5 perfume. In 2013, the Premiere watch collection added new styles and sizes.
