Le Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève Awarded CHANEL J12 Calibre 12.1 Timepiece
Le Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève annual prize ceremony, that celebrates the excellence of worldwide horological production, was held on Thursday, November 7th. Chanel‘s J12 Calibre 12.1 watch was honored with an award in the “Ladies” category.
“In 2019, CHANEL revealed the new J12 which now has a one-piece ceramic case equipped with a sapphire crystal so the new 12.1 caliber automatic movement, specially developed by the new Suisse KENISSI Manufacture, allowing it to be seen to be admired. The oscillating weight has been totally redesigned in tungsten to produce its openwork while maintaining efficient rewinding power, as the CHANEL Creation Studio wanted a perfect circle, one of the graphic signatures of CHANEL Haute Horlogerie.
The caliber 12.1, a chronometer certified by COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), offers 70-hour power reserve. An icon does not change, it adapts to the passing of time by capturing and sculpting it, by enhancing and understanding it. The J12 is stronger than any other.“
