This tourbillon with its diamond-set comet whirls around airily, as if freed from gravity. The complication par excellence, this noble tourbillon, which has no upper bridge, is the result of a close collaboration between Chanel and Swiss master-watchmakers Renaud & Papi (APRP SA).
The breathtaking, finely perforated dial offers glimpses of its skeletonised Haute Horlogerie movement, which plays with variations of black – matte, polished or shiny – and the countless reflections of its diamonds. Limited edition
