Chanel J12 Diamond Tourbillon
In 2022, CHANEL presents the new J12 Diamond Tourbillon Caliber 5, a technical prowess and aesthetic achievement and an expression of CHANEL’s watchmaking savoir-faire.
Designed in Paris by Arnaud Chastaingt, Director of the CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio, and developed and assembled by the CHANEL Manufacture at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the Caliber 5 is the first Flying Tourbillon movement made in-house. Equally beautiful from both front and back, the exposed mechanism with its sophisticated finish is adorned with a lion’s head, the signature of CHANEL Haute Horlogerie Manufacture movements.
A true technical tour de force, a solitaire diamond is positioned in the center of the flying tourbillon cage. Precisely cut to maximize its brilliance, the diamond turns around to the rhythm of the seconds, creating a hypnotic effect.
The bezel, hands and crown are set with diamonds. The J12 Tourbillon Diamond is available in matte black ceramic and steel or in glossy black ceramic and 18-carat white gold, each limited to 55 pieces.
