Chanel J12 Elegant Watch for Globetrotters

     A prestigious Parisian company, Chanel is ever since the beginning of the 20th century an haute couture icon, well known as a trendsetter when it comes to almost every aspect of the fashionable urban culture, whether the stylish clothing, the refined perfumes or the sophisticated accessories, the brand always celebrated beauty, distinction and elegance.

     Nevertheless, it was not until the late 1980s, that the brand started to design wristwatches, combining the Chanel unmistakable style and elegance with a visionary audacious approach to watch-making design, Chanel experienced an immeasurable market success.

     The brand recently brought another exquisite addition to its emblematic J12 line and a premiere for the young watchmaker- the very first GMT automatic watch produced under the Chanel name. The innovative ultra-flat J12 GMT is a chic sporty looking timepiece designed to meet the needs of the 21st century charismatic man, with an active life-style and a genuine interest in fashionable accessories.


     The watch was entirely manufactured from high-tech, extremely light black ceramic, which confers the timepiece, an amazing resistance of 100 meters watertight. The case, measuring 42 mm in diameter is only 10 mm thick and makes a plainest contrast with the charismatic sporty dial. The watch’s main dial displays the time of the local time zone, while an additional GMT-hour hand indicates the home time zone on the 24-h calibrated bezel. The Arabic numeral hour markers and the hands of the timepiece have been treated with a luminescent substance for perfect time legibility in poor light conditions. The timepiece is remarkable for its classy unadorned design. A scratchproof sapphire crystal shelters the dial of the Chanel J12 GMT. Moreover, it demonstrates contrasting white hour markers, which make an interesting contrast against the watch’s black dial, moreover as a horological complication the timepiece displays a small date aperture at 4:30 position.


     At the heart of this splendid timepiece beats the high frequency automatic movement that oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour ensuring a power reserve of 42-hours, and it was manufactured at the brand’s workshops in Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland.

     Designed for a man who likes to travel in style, the timepiece demonstrates great functionality and it is completed by an ergonomic black ceramic bracelet equipped with a very thin automatic triple-folding buckle that has newly been developed by the brand’s watch making team.

     An innovative timepiece that leads the fashion brand one-step further in the watch-making elitist world, the refined Chanel J12 GMT watch is available for an approximate price of $4,200.00.
