Chanel updated its impressive “J12” watch at Baselworld 2016. This collection originally launched in the year 2000.
The new “J12” has a mirrored dial for a design that plays with light and reflections with sophisticated style.
Chanel regularly adds to its “J12” collection with new watches sporting innovative designs or original complications, such as the “J12 Moonphase,” the “J12 Tourbillon Volant” and the “J12-365.”
This year, fans of the iconic timepiece will see the “J12 Mirror” add a model with a mirrored dial with a white lacquer centre and white Arabic numerals. As if suspended on the dial’s mirrored face, the numerals seem to float in a captivating and ever-changing play on light and reflection, which changes each time the wearer moves.
The main technical specifications of the J12 remain unchanged, so the new model inherits star features like Chanel’s white high-tech ceramic and steel strap, which is particularly resistant to scratches.
The watch uses a self-winding mechanical movement. It has hours, minutes and seconds functions, and a 42-hour power reserve.
