The year 2012 has brought about quite the collection of Chanel watches, especially for those who are serious collectors of the brand. For example, the Chanel J12 Calibre 3125 Watch, powered with Audemars Piguet mechanism was just released this past April, and has already captivated enthusiasts around the globe. The technology behind the beauty is probably one of the most amazing aspects of this timepiece. That being said, its appearance alone is enough to stop you dead in your tracks – from the stark contrast between the black face and gold details, to the beautiful window on the back that allows the wearer to glimpse the mechanics that power it.
Moving on, another very important release is the Chanel J12 Marine 300M Diving Watch. Although it lacks the upfront elegance that the 3125 offers, it more than makes up for it in functionality. As a standalone piece, it's definitely an attractive watch. Made out of ceramic material, it's features a very sturdy construction that won't break under the pressure that most dive equipment has to withstand. There are two color variations to the face itself, a blue outlay and a black one. As a whole, the piece is based on a darker color scheme, which means it can even be worn as an everyday watch if desired.
Although it's not a new piece, the Chanel J12 Retrograde Mysterieuse Tourbillon Watch is still a favorite among collectors. After all, who doesn't love the raw beauty behind a skeleton face design? This particular piece places more emphasis on appearance than it does functionality. However, that being said, it is still made out of the same sturdy craftsmanship that all Chanel pieces are known for, and it features a winning combination of stainless steel and Titanium. Be prepared for some tinkering to fully utilize all of its features if you end up losing the packaging that your watch came with.
The Chanel J12 Chromatic Titanium Ceramic Watch is another highlight on the recent Chanel Watches news front. This is a very effective piece if you're looking for a bold yet elegant watch that can be worn every day, or just for special occasions. The brushed Titanium ceramic case guarantees that your watch will be around for generations to come, and the self winding feature is definitely nice to have. Like many other Chanel designs, it offers water resistance up to 50 meters deep.
