Chanel J12 Haute Joaillerie

        Chanel is a prestigious French fashion house, created by a visionary spirit of the 20th century, Coco Chanel in the world’s capital of fashion, Paris. Through the years, the brand evolved into 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.

        In the late 1980s, that the brand experienced an interesting development entering the exclusive world of the Haute Horology, and due to combining the Chanel unmistakable style and elegance with a visionary audacious approach to watch-making design, Chanel experienced an immeasurable market success.

        In order to pay a great tribute to its first successful collection, the iconic Chanel J12 Watch Line, the brand’s designers have created another fascinating wristwatch, the extremely exclusive J12 Haute Joaillerie, a superb model created in a few precious variations build to last until the end of time.

        The skilled Chanel designers have created superb models that demonstrate a sophisticated combination of precious materials: delicate 18-karat white gold emphasized by the rich black of the high-tech ultra resistant ceramic and the seductive glitter of purest diamonds, Mademoiselle Chanel’s and probably every woman’s favorite precious gems.

         Designed for those impassionate fans of the brand, who believe, just like Coco Chanel many, many years ago that, the diamonds […] represent the highest value in the smallest volume, the superb Chanel J12 Haute Joaillerie Line demonstrates exceptional setting techniques developed in Switzerland, at Chanel’s workshops headquartered in La Chaux-de-Fonds.

        The round cases of the models were designed in various sizes; they measure weather 42 mm, 38 mm or the most delicate of them just 33 mm in diameter. The three variations have been manufactured in limited editions of just 12 pieces each that come accompanied by stylish bracelets that masterfully combine 400 diamonds, 18-karat white gold and sleek looking black ceramic. The models are animated by automatic movements- the 42 and 38 mm variations, meanwhile the 33 mm watch hosts a quartz movement. An exquisite combination of black and white, the Chanel J12 Haute Joaillerie Line matches the baguette-cut black ceramic with baguette-cut diamonds.

        The timepieces also feature a glamorous 18-karat gold bezel set with 48 glittering baguette-cut diamonds; meanwhile the watch’s case is paved with lavishing 78 baguette-cut diamonds. The dials of the timepieces follow the black and white overall theme of the collection masterfully combining white gold, 54 baguette-cut diamonds and the rich black of 84 baguette-cut ceramic tiles. Surely, this superb timepiece will become an object of desire for every Chanel impassionate fan, but unfortunately, due to its exclusive price tag it will remain just a beautiful dream for most of them.
