Inspired by the silhouettes of America’s Cup racing yachts, the new J12 watch is an icon of 21st-century timepieces. Featuring the Caliber 12.1, a self-winding automatic movement manufactured exclusively for Chanel, which can be seen through the case back.
The J12 was reinvented without losing its identity, yet with improved numeral typography. The dial, bezel, and crown have been redesigned, and the dial is now available in black or white lacquered ceramic.
Key points: A reliable, discreet, classic design
Plus: Chanel was honored for this watch at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in Geneva 2019 in the Ladies category.
Characteristics: Case and strap in lacquered shiny black or intense white ceramic, unidirectional turning bezel, stainless steel crown stem set with a high-resistant ceramic cabochon, sapphire crystal, triple-folding stainless steel clasp, self-winding automatic Caliber 12.1 movement, waterproof to 200 meters.
