There are so many benefits to owning your own automatic watch. Artisans like Chanel specialise in the expertise of making luxury mechanical wristwatches that are operated either by manually winding them by hand or by winding themselves from the movement created by the wearer’s wrist. Automatic Chanel watches have an internal mechanism that bears a rotor which is powered by a spring, eliminating any need for a battery. Here at Berry’s, we showcase a fabulous array of automatic Chanel watches. The Chanel J12 White watch collection and the Chanel J12 Black watch collection are widely recognised for their use of a mechanically driven movement at their centre. Both lines of watches offer sleek aesthetics with robust cases made from high tech ceramic and stainless steel. This reliable combination of materials helps to provide the engine of the watch with the best possible protection from factors like heat, moisture, dust, magnetic damage and shock impact.
Chanel automatic watches are often associated with the luxury watch industry. Their intricately crafted components need a steady, skilled hand to assemble into place with precision. The delicate parts of an automatic Chanel watch are a little like the organs of the body. They need a tough outer shell to protect the watch, but also need to reflect the high level of craftsmanship involved in their manufacturing, hence some automatic watches expose the automatic movement through a sapphire crystal glass exhibition caseback. One of the biggest advantages of an automatic Chanel watch over any other battery operated timepiece on the market is that it is sure to last many years longer than a quartz operated watch. Whereas quartz batteries need replacing after a few years, a mechanical self winding Chanel watch will continue to drive the hands around the dial for decades to come.
The Chanel J12 Black 38mm watch is a classic example to use as a way of demonstrating the French manufacturer’s unique style, combined with cutting edge technology. The timepiece is powered by a mechanical movement with a self winding mechanism. It sits within a robust casing made from glossy black high-tech ceramic for a chic look on the wrist, and this casing is water resistant up to 200 metres under the water. As a stylish ladies diver’s watch, the watch promises round-the-clock precision, along with all the extras needed for practical timekeeping underwater. The immaculate black ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel is perfect for keeping track of time whilst deep sea diving, for example. By simply aligning the central point of the bezel with the minute hand at the start of the session, the lady can keep track of her remaining dive time. The striking white Arabic hour markers are incredibly legible, enhanced of course, by a sapphire crystal glass front which sits atop of the dial, integrated with anti reflective technology. A robust link bracelet made from the same black high tech ceramic finishes the design perfectly.
For something a little more daytime-friendly, the Chanel J12-365 White watch with a 37mm bezel is a slightly smaller watch which presents time through elegant diamond dot hour indexes. By night it can be combined with a sparkling sequin dress or a stylish wedding outfit for the perfect finishing touches to smart attire. The automatic movement housed inside this clean, contemporary white J12-365 watch promises a useful 42 hour power reserve and a date aperture at 6 o’clock encircled by the small seconds subsidiary dial.
