New CHANEL J12 Marine Watch Truly Dazzles

Jewelry & Watches: The CHANEL 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.

An authentic diving watch, the J12 Marine is taking the aesthetic appeal of the J12 Watch Collection one step further into the depths of the sea. Cleverly incorporated into the aquatic 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 type 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. It is available in two sizes and three versions in classic CHANEL colors: black, white and blue. Like the other watches in the J12 Collection, the J12 Marine is elegant ceramic, making it a welcome addition to the stylish J12 family.

Like all of the CHANEL Watch Collections, the J12 Marine is carefully crafted with special attention given to each detail and facet of the timepiece?s design. Each piece features a sand-blasted, high-tech ceramic and steel case with engraved decoration. The steel bezel rotates unidirectionally. It is notched for a graduated 60-minute read and marked by a luminescent marker at 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 a 42-hour power reserve and is capable of giving an hour, minute and second hand reading time and date 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. The elegant finishing touches: an ardillon buckle in polished and satin-finish steel, engraved with CHANEL and a caseback with an engraved decoration celebrating the J12 Marine.
