CHANEL Ceramic

Introduction

To create the iconic J12 in 2000, CHANEL adopted an avant-garde approach and selected a revolutionary material that made it possible to produce an intensely black watch. Extremely durable and hardly scratchable, plus 7 times more resistant than steel, yet lighter and softer to the touch, ceramic is among the emblematic materials in CHANEL Watchmaking.
