An icon of watchmaking, the Chanel J12 stands alone in its craftsmanship, allure and versatility. Named after the J-Class single-masted sailboats in the America’s Cup Race, the accessory revolutionised the design of unisex luxury sport watches when first unveiled to the market in 2000. Now, for more than 20 years, it has written itself into fashion folklore; an item to be coveted, as seen on Australian actor, Thomas Cocquerel.

The Chanel J12 watch is powered by a 12.1 Calibre or 12.2 Calibre, a Manufacture self-winding movement, created exclusively fro the House, allowing for the inner workings of the watch to be visible from the outside. Each Chanel J12 is to hold its own memories, a timepiece for the ages to be adored by all who wear it through their lives.

As seen inside the pages of the 'Wonder' issue – lensed by Joe Brennan and styled by Charlotte Agnew – the Chanel J12 is understated, yet its notoriety and intricate design are never lost in its minimalistic appearance. Seamlessly paired with an array of colours from navy, maroon and black, it is versatile and applicable to any occasion.
