CHANEL has unveiled its plan to present the latest version of its now iconic J12 watch at the next edition of Baselworld, which takes place in Basel, Switzerland from 27 March 27 to 3 April. Chanel has made a number of innovative changes to the J12 timepiece and given it a more refined, feminine allure with the J12-365, with the ceramic case -- in black or white depending on the version -- now accented with steel or with beige gold, a new shade of 18K gold obtained through an alloy developed by Chanel.
The new J12, which has a 36.5mm diameter, has been reduced from 38mm giving the watch a daintier, even more feminine aspect than previous models. This new model has a mechanical self-winding movement with a 42-hour power reserve and hour, minute, second and date indication.
The J12-365 is available in eight variations: in white ceramic with steel or beige gold and with or without diamond inlay, or in black ceramic with steel or beige gold and with or without diamond inlay.
Available in stores 2 June.
