First launched in 2000, the Chanel J12 watch is the first ever brand to utilise black ceramic as a precious material for timepieces and 15 years down the line, the French Maison achieves another breakthrough with a new feature - a skeleton flying tourbillon.
Maintaining the spirit of the original J12 watch, the strap and case of the Chanel J12 Skeleton Flying Tourbillon are made with the signature black ceramic but enhanced with a new feature, where the caseback and buckle are created with titanium steel for a contrasting aesthetics.
The watch also features a diamond encrusted 18K white gold bezel that houses a skeleton flying tourbillon, where the signature Chanel 'Comète' star swirls brilliantly at the centre.
Made with 30 brilliant-cut diamonds and a cabochon in 18K white gold set with 19 brilliant-cut diamonds, the star adds much sparkle to the watch like a dashing comet in the night skies.
With a manual-winding calibre, a 40-hour power reserve and a tourbillon without an upper bridge, the watch proves to be more than a jewellery watch.
Limited to only 20 pieces worldwide, the Chanel J12 Skeleton Flying Tourbillon watch is available at select watch retailers and Chanel boutiques. Price is available upon request.
