The French luxury brand will present the latest version of its now iconic J12 watch at the next edition of Baselworld (March 27-April 3).
At first glance, the J12-365 appears to differ only slightly from previous versions of Chanel’s prestigious ceramic watch.
In reality, however, Chanel has made a number of innovative changes to the timepiece and given it a more refined, feminine allure.
Still round and made of high-tech ceramic, the J12-365 maintains the defining characteristics of the original J12. However, the ceramic case — in black or white depending on the version — is accented with steel or with beige gold, a new shade of 18K gold obtained through an alloy developed by Chanel.
Another notable change is the size of the new J12, which has a 36.5mm diameter, down from 38mm on previous versions. This subtle change gives the watch a daintier, even more feminine aspect than previous models.
This new model has a mechanical self-winding movement with a 42-hour power reserve and hour, minute, second and date indication. The small seconds dial and date are both located at 6 o’clock
The J12-365 is available in eight variations: in white ceramic with steel or beige gold and with or without diamond inlay, or in black ceramic with steel or beige gold and with or without diamond inlay.
