Jewelry & Watches: Chanel's collection of J12 fashion watches has quickly become the most popular watch offering from the celebrated fashion house. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the watch's launch, Chanel has introduced the elegant J12 Marine Watch.
The J12 Marine is an authentic diving watch, taking the aesthetic appeal of the J12 watch collection one step further into the depths of the sea. Cleverly incorporated into the watery theme, the official J12 website places the watch in its natural habitat, complete with a deep blue sea background and oxygen bubble accents. Even the font flows as smoothly as the waves of the watery deep, giving viewers an interactive underwater experience.
The newly celebrated J12 Marine is inspired by maritime symbols, becoming a necessary nautical instrument in itself. The J12 is available in two sizes and three versions in classic Chanel colors: black, white and blue. Like the other watches in J12 collection, the J12 Marine is elegant ceramic, making it a welcome addition to the stylish J12 horology collection.
Like all of Chanel's collections, the J12 Marine is carefully crafted with special attention given to each detail and facet of the watch's design. Each piece features a sand-blasted high-tech ceramic and steel case with engraved decoration, the bezel is steel notched unidirectional rotating with a graduated 60 minute for easy reading and marked by a luminescent chip at the 12 O'clock. The crystal is sapphire with a blue anti-reflective coating on the internal and external faces.
Water resistant up to a depth of 300 meters, the black lacquered dial offers luminous visibility even in the depths of the sea. The self-winding, mechanical Swiss movement has 42 hour power reserve and is capable of giving an hour, minute, seconds date and reading time on the bezel. For comfort, the matte rubber strap has openings to allow water to pass through and the composite material makes the J12 Marine highly resistant to water, shocks, scratches and ultraviolet rays. To complete the elegance the ardillon buckle in polished and satin-finish steel is engraved with Chanel, while the caseback offers an engraved decoration celebrating the J12 Marine.
