Chanel reinterprets their iconic J12 collection with a mirrored element inspired by their Parisian atelier

Owning a Chanel timepiece simply speaks of polished sophistication. Of all their elite collections, the J12 is undoubtedly the one that's most loved for its distinctively sleek yet sporty appearance.

Giving the timeless icon a new twist, the French luxury house takes inspiration directly from their atelier at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris. Referencing the mirrors running along the art deco staircase, the new J12 Mirror collection plays upon reflections and light with a mirrored dial adorned in white numerals that seemingly suspends time. Employing the outstanding scratch and stain resistent properties of high tech ceramic for a brilliant finish, the J12 is an incomparably pristine piece, a likeness of the unrivalled finesse that defines Chanel.

The J12 Mirror Collection is available at Chanel boutiques in two sizes and limited to 1,200 pieces each.
