When you reminisce on Chanel’s magnificent J12 collection, one word instantly comes to mind: timeless. Time is something that the French luxury fashion house of Chanel holds dear to its design DNA through each season by reinventing Chanel’s timeless classics through a modern, contemporary lens. Inspired by the silhouettes of racing yachts from America’s Cup, the J12 is an absolute icon of 21st-century watchmaking. And perhaps the greatest beauty of the J12 is its ability to withstand the test of time as it is continually reinvented without losing its identity.
Two years after launching the J12 Caliber 12.1, endowed with an automatic movement designed and developed exclusively for the House by the Swiss manufacturer Kenissi, Chanel has introduced a new watch this fall—the J12 Caliber 12.2 Edition 1—in a very limited edition of 555 pieces. For the first time ever, the J12 33mm is equipped with a self-winding movement manufactured exclusively for Chanel: the Caliber 12.2. Like its predecessors, the J12 Caliber 12.2 watch is made with a highly resistant ceramic available in a sleek, bold black or a sophisticated radiant white.
A tone-on-tone design highlighted by the meticulously refined bezel with a baguette motif and a crown set with a diamond, the J12 Caliber 12.2 Edition 1 makes an even more significant impact with its enhanced dial. Another remarkable addition to the collection, the J12 Caliber 12.2 Edition 1, exudes the timeless sophistication of Chanel.
