J12

Chanel 2019

Unisex

Not quite the same, not quite another, the J12 has been subtly refreshed as it approaches its 20th anniversary. Chanel's icon, which made its first appearance in 2000, has been top-to-bottom revisited by the brand's creation studio, but hasn't lost one iota of its personality. Outwardly, the bezel is now slimmer and the number of notches increased from 30 to 40. The typography for the numerals and indexes has been redesigned, as have the hands and the inner railway minute track. Whereas the width of the crown has been reduced, the case thickness has been slightly increased while preserving the same harmonious proportions. In all, 70% of the components have been modified including, and not least, the movement. Henceforth, this ceramic beauty's heart beats to the rhythm of Calibre 12.1: a new movement created for Chanel by Kenissi and certified by the COSC. It can be seen on the reverse side through the openworked tungsten oscillating weight whose perfect circle is a hallmark of Chanel watchmaking.
