Back in 2000 when Chanel introduced the J12, it debuted as the first unisex watch from the iconic Parisian house, made of high-tech non-scratch ceramic hardware in black and white that will later feature precision-cut diamonds and materials in various dimensions in the years to come. But this year, Chanel has revolutionized the J12 by downsizing and fitting it with the most outrageously beautiful straps and cuffs for a luxe yet sensual touch.
Introducing Chanel J12-XS, the latest iteration of the cult J12 ceramic timepiece that now comes in a diameter of a quaint 19mm with a quartz movement that can be worn with matte and patent calfskin cuffs fitted with steel ardillon buckles and steel loops. A standout is the white matte calfskin high jewellery cuff set with 158 brilliant-cut diamond-set gold trims alongside 18k white gold loops set with 5 baguette-cut diamonds.
Chanel paid homage to the French couture embroiderer François Lesage with the J12-XS Lesage cuffs—one-off pieces that feature the iconic maison's hand embroidery on the cuffs teemed with sequins, glass beads, and baguette-cut diamonds for the ultimate touch of feminine decadence. It also drew inspiration from creative director Karl Lagerfeld with the J12-X Gloves, a lineup of fingerless, short and long lambskin cuffs for the rocker-chic vibe punctuated with a hint of luxe. But nothing screams exclusive as much as the J12-XS High Jewellery Ring Watch, the new way of sporting a timepiece on your fingers with a black ceramic band furnished with baguette-cut diamonds on its bezel and a black onyx dial. Rest assured that you'll be a trendsetter in your own right with this exquisite accessory.
