CHANEL J12 watches are a design that has been re-transformed and reinterpreted many times over the years since the collection was first launched in the year 2000. It is perhaps one of the most imitated designs in the watch industry. The watches are casually elegant and fused with contemporary beauty. The collection brings together day and night – masculinity and femininity – black and white. Whether a fan of CHANEL’s stand-out designer style or intrigued by their use of unique materials and exquisite finishes, the J12 is sure to appeal to at least a tiny part of everyone’s taste in style.
The bold J12 timepiece was an instant hit for men and women seen as it catered to both audiences. By pioneering the use of high-tech ceramic, CHANEL was able to come up with a scratch resistant, streamlined design that would hold up against wear and tear over years of use. It therefore became apparent to CHANEL watch lovers across the globe that the manufacturer represented being a little more than just an innovator for stylish designer accessories. They also represented quality, consistency and reliability. CHANEL watches were investment pieces to be handed down from one generation to the next.
CHANEL created the first coloured ceramic. The white and grey watches offered a contemporary look on the wrist, whilst later down the line the black models were incredibly wearable – perfect for formal events, work, social celebrations and for taking on vacation. The bold and iconic colour of the CHANEL J12 Black watch collection has become a timeless favourite for dedicated CHANEL collectors also. By many it is also considered the perfect sports watch. Composed of clear lines and elegant curves, the chronograph J12 watches makes for ideal companions to take along to the gym. The CHANEL J12 Black watch is also considered to be ahead of its time. Manufactured from high quality materials, the palatable dials are protected by sapphire crystal glass lenses which shield the display from any undesirable glare and any scratches, a little like the ceramic cases which protect the powerful engines sitting inside.
The CHANEL J12-365 watches are absolute classics housed in striking aesthetics. Comprised of stainless steel and high-tech ceramic, these timepieces are great for bridging the gap between a companion for everyday outings and a sophisticated accessory for pairing with elegant evening attire by night. The CHANEL J12-365 37mm Black Ceramic & 18ct Beige Gold Ladies watch is a beautifully manufactured design. It features 18ct beige gold on the bezel as well as matching Arabic numerals around the edge of the black guilloche dial. The central hands are also executed in the same finish. They sweep over a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock and a date aperture positioned on the ring of this subscale. The golden crown at 3 o’clock on the bezel is a wonderful contrasting feature against the polished black ceramic bracelet with foldable clasp. The automatic movement which is protected by this innovative ceramic 37mm casing, provides an impressive 42 hour power reserve across 28,800 vibrations per hour.
