Chanel Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the J12 Timepiece

As you’re probably aware by now, this year 10 Magazine celebrates its 20th Anniversary (we’re getting old, we know). But it seems like we’re not the only ones turning 20 in 2020. It also happens to be the big birthday of Chanel’s J12 watch. A true classic if there ever was one, the Chanel J12 has been a go-to for ladies of luxury across the globe. In a signature ceramic casing, the J12 has remained effortlessly stylish for two whole decades; a true pinnacle in the world of watches. The house isn’t just celebrating the timepiece’s birthday in style, but has produced a limited-edition version of the J12 to coincide with the watch turning double figures. The J12.20 comes with 20 of Chanel’s most iconic symbols – including the N°5 perfume bottle and a caricature of Coco Chanel herself – plastered across the 38mm watch face. To add to the speciality of this beauty, the caseback comes engraved with “20 years. Limited to 2020”.

Chanel has been celebrating all things J12 for the past month now, enlisting some of the house’s muses over the years to appear in a series of short clips celebrating the watch. From Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer, to Lily-Rose Depp and Liu Wen – it seems everybody’s crazy about J12, including us!

The Chanel J12.20 watch is available to purchase at select Chanel stores now.
