J12 Tourbillon Fine Jewelry black ceramic

The first Chanel J12 Tourbillon watch in ceramic joined the world of Fine Watchmaking in 2005.

For 2008, Chanel has created a new majestic tourbillon timepiece revealing a baguette-cut diamond bezel. You will count 46 diamonds with a total weight of 4.5 carats. The 38-mm case of the Chanel watch and bracelet are crafted in black ceramic and 18k white gold. The eye-pleasing peculiarity of the case construction is a cabochon crown with diamond.

The J12 Tourbillon Fine Jewelry black ceramic accommodates a manual-winding mechanical movement, caliber 'CHANEL 05-T.1'. The exceptional mechanism, developed in Chanel's Swiss workshops located in La Chaux de Fonds, each hand-assembled by the most experienced watchmakers, has united watchmaking tradition and high technology. The ceramic plates are made to 1/100, a matchless precision level for this type of material. The movement provides 100-hour power reserve.

The new Chanel J12 Tourbillon will be available in a limited edition of 12 numbered pieces.

J12 GMT white ceramic

In 2007, the world of Exquisite Watchmaking witnessed the birth of the first Chanel GMT watch. Conceived as the ideal traveling companion, boasting both elegant and practical design, the 'J12' GMT is crafted entirely from unalterable black ceramic.

Today Chanel opens yet another new chapter in its watchmaking history, having created a new feminine "J12" GMT version on a white ceramic bracelet.

The 42-mm white ceramic case houses an automatic movement. The 21-ruby movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, offers an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve. The case construction has incorporated a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment. The watch guarantees 100-meter water-resistance.

The legible white dial, completed with Superluminova-coated hands and indexes, phosphorescent in the dark, shows time in two different points of the globe. The Chanel J12 GMT will keep you aware of the local time, in the location visited, displayed on the main dial. You will also be able to find out the home time, in the place of origin, displayed on the 24-hour calibrated bezel and indicated by the additional GMT hour-hand.

Aesthetic lovers will surely appreciate a white ceramic bracelet of the new Chanel J12 GMT.
