I've always backed off from chairs thinking too time consuming and
complicated. Be interested in what you estimate a set of eight might
take you in terms of time with the jigs made and the "Jig" set up.
While I've made benches and one-off chairs, a matching set of dining chairs
has always struck me the same way.
Tables, and most cabinetry, are just variations on a theme I've done plenty
of, so I decided that since I'm not getting any younger, I needed to bear
down and approach chairmaking in a methodical manner in order to establish a
methodology to mitigate the time and complication.
Besides, I like the challenge and problem solving probably as much as having
a set of chairs to match some of my other creations. ;)
I'm on the verge of letting you know the answer to that ... I am estimating
about a hard week from what I've seen thus far. That's milling, fabrication
of the parts, and assembly, not finishing.
I may be surprised ... or may surprise myself. As in most of my woodworking
endeavors, it is the preparation that takes the most time. I'm very close to
having that out of the way. The biggest problem is finding the time to do
what I feel is ample preparation on my own projects.

I just finished admiring your prototype chair photos over on ABPW.
Looks really good!
