This interview with Nicolas Beau should have gone online much earlier, since it was the first one I taped. But I had an issue with the Micro-SD card of my Tascam Digital Recorder I could not solve in Basel. Now home again I was able to get the data back from the SD-card and here it is ...

Nicolas Beau is in charge of the Chanel Watch Division. The latter celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Yes, Chanel manufactures wristwatches since 30 years! Chanel started as a fashion brand to do this much earlier than many others.

In the interview Nicolas gave me some insights and he talked about the new watches. Including my favorite Chanel watch of 2017 and one of my overall favorites of this year, the Chanel Mademoiselle J12. I simply love this creation!





The Chanel Mademoiselle J12 watch is available in white and black and limited to 555 pieces each. In Germany it is sold for 6900 Euro including VAT.
