J12 Turns 20
20 years of allure, boldness and creation. Always in motion, the J12 travels through time without ever losing its identity.
CHANEL Watches launched the J12 watch in September 2000. Inspired by the silhouettes of racing yachts from the America's Cup, it is an icon of 21st century watchmaking. J12 was CHANEL’s first sport watch. Water-resistant to 200m, equipped with a unidirectional bezel, made of highly resistant ceramic, the J12 could endure extreme conditions.
The J12 watch features the Calibre 12.1, a self-winding movement manufactured exclusively for CHANEL. For the first time, the movement is visible through a sapphire crystal glass on the caseback. A watch as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.
