Those of you who have been following my blog and or know me, understand that I am NOT the biggest fan of fashion brands. I respect what they try to do but usually theri designs and styles are enough to make me want to vommit!
That being said, Chanel is the only fashion brand that I respect because they are still a family owned buisness that has managed to stay independent. They didn’t whore out their name like a ton of other fashion brands, and for the most part are made out the highest quality and are reliable. They even partnered up a couple of years ago with AP to manaufacuture their movements that are used in particular J-12 models.
When the Chanel J-12 came out over 10 years ago, it blew the doors off and allowed Chanel to be taken seriuiously as a luxury watch brand. To further enhance the icon that is the J-12., Chanel has released the NEW Mademoiselle J12 Automatic. What makes this watch interesting is that it features a depiction of Mademoiselle Chanel in a suite with matching hat printed on the sapphire crystal plate. Her arms serve as the hands of the watch representing hours and minutes. I can’t tell if Chanel got it’s inspiration from or is taking the piss out of the Mickey Mouse watches from the 1930’s, (which have gone on the become collectible, at least certain models). Any way you slice it, it’s very pop art, cool and immediately identifiable!
The NEW Mademoiselle Chanel J12 automatic is 38 mm in diameter is available in white ceramic and steel or black ceramic and steel and is limited to 555 pieces for the world. The watch is driven by an automatic movement featuring hours, minutes and 42 hours of power reserve. The ceramic bracelet has a steel triple folding buckle.
Whether you are a fan of fashion, watches, pop culture or just Chanel, this watch tix all the boxes! This watch retails for $7,200 and I am sure will sell out fast!
