Don’t call this a classic; the Première wristwatch by Chanel is only 35 years old and looks as ageless as Keira Knightley does in 2022. It already boasts a tried-and-tested formula from the get-go: a case shape inspired by the bottle cap of its iconic perfume and an interlocking dual-material strap first made famous by its handbags. That said, those who missed out on the original get a second shot at owning a design that never looked a day out of style. Today, Chanel has reissued the original Première with an onyx dial and a yellow gold body… and it still looks classy AF.
