Retractable vertical crown…

More details and pics have emerged on a most curious creation from Chanel.  It seems that this concept watch has the technical handiwork of none other than Giulio Papi on it.  Giulio Papi is co-founder of the very prestigious movement maker “Renaud & Papi”, owned by Audemars Piguet.  This affiliation makes sense as we already know that Chanel has been supplied by Audemars Piguet  since 2008 with the Caliber 3125 movement’s for the Chanel J12 watches.  Note the retractable vertical crown!
