Chanel Unveils Limited-Edition J12 Watches

Chanel pays homage to Mademoiselle Gabrielle Chanel herself with the release of limited-edition J12 watches.

Bearing her image on its facade, the quintessential black and white watches are inspired by a picture of the iconic and inimitable designer in her villa's garden in the south of France, wearing her signature striped Breton jersey and sleek button-front pants. Both watches are equipped with a Calibre 12.1 self-winding movement, designed by Swiss manufacturer Kenissi and arrives in a sapphire crystal case. The black option is decorated with a lacquered dial, alongside a highly resistant black ceramic bracelet. The white iteration is its contrasting twin, bathing the technical features in the crisp shade, such as a steel and white-varnished sapphire crystal unidirectional rotating bezel.
