Lot Essay

A pair of unique matte black and white highly resistant ceramic J12 PARADOXE, with a special black execution of the self-winding Calibre 12.1 visible through a sapphire crystal engraved "Pièce unique. Only Watch 2021".

Since its beginning in 2000, the J12 has been breaking the codes, revolutionising the watchmaking world and becoming the first icon of the 21rst century. The J12 watch becomes The J12.

Black? White? The J12 does not want to choose anymore. Black and white come together. Without actually mixing. Creating a line, a paradox.

For the Only Watch auction, CHANEL is offering two J12 PARADOXE timepieces. This unique design relies on a technical challenge: cutting without breaking two highly resistant ceramic cases of different colours and combining them to make one and only case. An expertise mastered by the CHANEL Manufacture. The duo is both equipped with the self-winding Calibre 12.1 movement manufactured exclusively for the Maison, chronometer-certified by the COSC.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Since 1987 CHANEL gives allure to time cultivating the art of surprise and elegance, and before all an infinite desire to create. In 1987, CHANEL creates a watch. Its name is Première, a genuine piece of jewelry and the embodiment of femininity. The Première watch opened the first chapter of the great story of the Temps CHANEL. In 2000, it is a revolution. The J12 initiates a fundamental shift in the world of watchmaking by transforming highly resistant ceramic into a precious material, reinventing black and imposing white. The J12 becomes a true icon. In 2019, at the eve of its 20th year, the J12 is equipped with a Manufacture movement Calibre 12.1. The Temps CHANEL is also a Swiss-based watch Manufacture whose expertise is serving creativity. A CHANEL watch is never what you expect it to be. It calibrates time, twisting classic codes with audacity. For more information: chanel.com.
