The first Chanel watch was created in 1987. It was The PREMIERE, its octagonal shape inspired by Place Vendôme and the N°5 perfume cabochon stopper. Six years later, the French fashion house acquired a horological home in Switzerland - the means to launching the iconic J12 collection in 2000.
Designed by artistic director Jacques Hélleu, who was inspired by sailing, specifically J-Class racing yachts, the ceramic J12 watch was the first unisex timepiece of its kind, combining strength and elegance.
This summer, the fashion house launches its latest iteration: the J12 WANTED DE CHANEL series of five limited edition timepieces. Our Influence @endlesslyloveclub's Jen Ceballos cites the 38mm glossy black ceramic style as the piece of jewellery that means the most to her - a timeless accessory to be passed down generations to come.
