Came out in: 2000.

Created by Jacques Helleu, the J12 is currently Chanel's best seller. "I initially created the J12 for myself. I wanted a timeless and indestructible watch in shiny black, one that made me think of certain automobile masterpieces," said Jacques Helleu at the launch of the watch.

The design is influenced by motorsport and sailing, two of the Chanel artistic director's passions. Its high-tech, scratch-proof, shiny ceramic is derived from cutting-edge technologies and comes in Mademoiselle Chanel's favourite colours, black and white.
