Chanel J12 Tourbillon Black Ceramic & Diamonds

        One of the most renowned fashion powerhouses in the world Chanel is, ever since the beginning of the 20th century, when it was created by a visionary audacious woman, Coco Chanel, an international haute couture icon well known as a trendsetter when it comes to almost every aspect of the modern urban culture. When it comes to fashion, Chanel always created la crème, whether it comes to the stylish clothing lines, refined perfumes or sophisticated accessories, it is a brand internationally known for celebrating beauty, distinction and elegance.


        Up to creating luxury watches, it was just one-step, but it was not until the late 1980s, that the brand entered the elitist world of the Haute Horology. Combining its unmistakable style and elegance with a creative, revolutionary approach to watch-making design, Chanel experienced an immense market success.

        In 2005, the brand enriched its emblematic J12 Line with its very first ceramic tourbillon – the superb Chanel J12 Tourbillon, and, for 2008, the brand released another exquisite tourbillon model that majestically combines the seductive diamond glitter with remarkable mechanical complications.


        The timepiece features a stylish 38 mm case, which demonstrates a wonderful combination of white gold and sleek-looking black ceramic; moreover, the timepiece reveals a superb diamond embellished bezel, adorned with 46 baguette-cut diamonds that sum 4.5 karats. The timepiece’s case also features an eye-catching, diamond embellished cabochon crown.

        At the heart of the superb Chanel J12 Tourbillon Fine Jewelry beats an in-house caliber ‘CHANEL 05-T.1’, a manual-winding mechanical movement especially developed at the brand’s Swiss workshops in Chaux-de-Fonds. The exceptional mechanism created by the brand’s master watchmakers, blends mechanical sophistication and watch-making tradition; it was entirely assembled by hand and its ceramic plates confer unmatchable precision of 1/100 and an outstanding100-hours power reserve.

        The timepiece features a deep black ceramic bezel fitted with contrasting white Arabic numeral hour markers and hour and minute hands, the brand’s logo is located beneath the 12 o’clock position and the eye-catching tourbillon complication is majestically displayed at 6 o’clock.

         Masterfully combining the watchmaker’s skill with the delicate jeweler’s art, the new Chanel J12 Tourbillon comes coupled with a stylish black ceramic bracelet and it will surely be a coveted collectable item, and the privilege of just 12 of the most passionate fans of the brand.
