The J12 Chromatic was born in 2011 out of the desire by CHANEL to invent a new colour and to give a new tint to ceramic, one that has never been seen before. The Chromatic colour shimmers with varying intensity and density according to the ambient light. To do justice to this remarkable hue, you have to wear the watch, let it live, and allow it to change as it moves. Material, colour, and sheen are inextricably linked. It passes from a stormy sky to a shimmering ocean, becoming a mirror, a reflection, a depth. The colour is intense and changeable, vibrant warm and poetic.
