Chanel unveils the J12∙20 to honour two decades of the horology icon

20 years ago, Chanel sealed its fate as a power player in the world of watchmaking.

The J12 was a horological stroke of genius with its black ceramic coating.

Now, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, the maison has revealed its limited edition J12∙20 in a highly resistant white ceramic and steel case available in 33 mm and 38 mm. On the white lacquered dial and bezel are 20 polished rhodium-plated motifs, each an iconic symbol of the House such as the camélia, Chanel N°5 perfume, and the 2.55 bag. These are accented with 12 brilliant cut diamonds, each approximately 0.03 carats. Only 2020 timepieces are available.

The screw-down steel crown with a white ceramic cabochon, accompanies a strap of the same material with a steel triple-folding buckle. Its enameled version, limited to only five pieces, sports a white gold bezel and dial with champlevé enamel punctuated with 20 brilliant cut diamonds.
