Launched in 2000, the J12 was the first watch to dare transforming high-tech ceramic into a precious material. Firstly in radiant black and in 2003, in immaculate white, the number 12 becomes part of the House’s symbolic numbers.

In 2011, Chanel brings another innovation with the creation of Titanium ceramic that confers a unique and ever changing color reference to its bracelet.

By multiplying it in variations and venturing into the creation of mat surfaces, limited editions and exceptional pieces, fifteen years after its creation, Chanel continues to pay tribute to this watchmaking icon.

A tourbillon stylized with a precious comet, this star, whirls about lightly, as if weightless. The epitome of a high-quality complication, this tourbillon is without an upper bridge and is the result of close collaboration between Chanel and Swiss master watchmakers Renaud & Papi (APRP SA).

Showcasing unique beauty, the finely perforated dial offers a glimpse of its Fine Watchmaking skeleton movement, which plays on variations of black – matte, polished and shiny – and a thousand diamond lights.
