More original and free than ever, the J12 becomes J12∙20 for its 20th birthday.
In 2020, the J12 turns 20. In the year 2000, the J12 revolutionized the world of watchmaking. First dressed in black ceramic, then in white in 2003, it is unalterable and almost as eternal as a diamond.
This year, it becomes the J12∙20, in a highly resistant white ceramic and steel case available in 33 mm and 38 mm. Each size is a limited edition of 2020 pieces bearing the words "20 YEARS. LIMITED TO 2020" engraved on the case back. The watch features a unidirectional rotating steel bezel with rhodium-plated motifs that spread on the white lacquered dial. These motifs represent twenty symbols and references from the Maison Chanel: a 2.55 bag, a camellia, a bottle of N°5 perfume and even a tweed jacket. Twelve brilliant-cut diamonds (~0.03 carat) are irregularly scattered over the dial, often included in the symbolic motifs.

The screw-down steel crown is adorned with a white ceramic cabochon and the bracelet is made of the same material and closed by steel triple-folding buckle.
A high-precision quartz movement powers the hours, minutes, and seconds functions of the 33 mm model, while the larger one benefits from the self-winding COSC-certified Calibre 12.1 movement, which has a power reserve of 70 hours.
J12.20 38 mm
A numbered edition limited to 5 pieces, the J12.20 welcomes on the bezel of its 38 mm diameter white ceramic case and on its dial an abundance of Chanel symbols occupying all the space. The bezel and dial are in white gold and the motifs are in champlevé enamel and set with 20 brilliant-cut diamonds. The crown, set with one brilliant-cut diamond, and the hands are also in 18-carat white gold. As with the two models above, the bracelet is made of highly resistant white ceramic but its triple folding clasp is in 18-carat white gold.
At the heart of this precious watch, the self-winding Calibre 12.1 features a black oscillating weight set with 34 brilliant-cut diamonds
