Gabrielle Chanel opened her first boutique in Paris in 1913, selling hats and a limited line of garments. She quickly gained a loyal clientele with her practical designs becoming exceedingly popular with women looking to break away from corsets and full skirts. Over the following decades, her style and success would continue to grow, making her one of the biggest style icons of the last century. The brand introduced its first watch, the Premiere, in 1987, which was followed by the J12 in 2000, a bold timepiece that follows Chanel’s revolutionary style and started the brand’s journey into high-end watchmaking.
