Baselworld 2013: Chanel J12 Matte Black Superleggera and J12 White Phantom 10th Anniversary

Last year Chanel made available for the first time its black ceramic J12 in a matte finish. At Baselworld 2013 it will present the J12 Superleggera Chronograph in matte black.

Inside the 42 mm ceramic case is a COSC certified ETA 2892 with chronograph module. I’ve always liked the J12 Superleggera Chronograph, though it more about fashion and less about horology, and in matte ceramic it looks even better. And also at Baselworld 2013 is the J12 White Phantom 10th Anniversary to make the 10th year of the white J12 watch. This 33 mm ladies’ watch has a quartz movement and is limited to 2000 pieces.

Baselworld 2013: Chanel Mademoiselle Prive with Anita Porchet enamel dial

At Baselworld 2013 Chanel will unveil the Mademoiselle Privé with Coromandel Decoration. 

Made by noted enameller Anita Porchet, the dial is Grand Feu enamel on a solid 18k gold disc, depicting a motif inspired by Coromandel lacquer screens.  The scene is hand painted miniature enamel and the foliage is made of individually applied 18k gold paillons. The 38.5 mm case is white gold and set with 4.13 carats of diamonds. This is a unique piece and it proves that fashion houses are doing serious timepieces, which I am certain will get even better as more resources are devoted to proper watchmaking. – SJX
