Black That Doesn’t Understand Day And Night Chanel Launches New J12 Black Watch

Since its inception in 2000, the CHANEL J12 series has created a wave of minimalist black and white on the watch ring. In the past 20 years, Arnaud Chastaingt, director of the Chanel Watch Creative Studio, reinterpreted the J12 watch. From the inside to the outside, it is very different from before.

New Chanel J12 Watch (Black with Diamonds)

Black dial real shot

Bezel digital details

 The new J12 still uses a diameter of 38 mm in the case diameter, but has made some adjustments in details. First of all, from the design details, the bezel design has been subtlely changed, and the grooves on the edges have been increased from 30 to 40, which makes the dial look broad. In addition, the numbers on the bezel and the font of the time scale are also redesigned.

Watch side shot

 The thickness of the case is slightly increased, but there is no need to worry about whether increasing the thickness will reduce the wearer’s comfort. The precision ceramic material used in the J12 series is not only stronger in hardness than ordinary watchmaking materials, but also more skin-friendly compared to watchmaking materials such as stainless steel.

Crown shot

 The new J12 series also has some adjustments on the diameter of the crown. The diameter of the crown has been reduced by one third, which is more in line with ergonomics. The crown is inlaid with raised round precision ceramics, which makes the wearer feel better when adjusting the time.

The brand new J12 features a transparent design with unobstructed movement details

 In addition to these subtle changes in appearance, the biggest change of Chanel’s new J12 series is actually ‘behind’ it. For a long time, the J12 series has been emphasized by its outside design and ceramic case. On the new J12 series, one of the highlights is that the brand has transformed the original dense bottom design into a back-through design.

 Movement details

 The integrated precision ceramic case back allows us to see the watch’s new movement-12.1 caliber automatic mechanical movement through the sapphire glass at the bottom.

 The new movement of the new J12 is specially created by Swiss watchmaker Kenissi, which has increased the power reserve time of the new J12 movement from the original 42 hours to an extremely long 70 hours. In addition, the waterproof function has also been improved from 50 meters to the current 200 meters. Achieving back-to-back not only greatly improves the aesthetics of the J12 series, but also allows us to see the details of the movement through the case back. It’s good news for brands and users.

Blancpain 300-year ‘core’ Runs Freely


 In 1735, the Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty in China ascended the throne, and he loved to hide and hide. He did not know how many strange treasures he hid in his life. But I’m afraid there is no such thing as a better watch than a watch. In view of the special origin of Qianlong and clocks, more than 270 years later, Blancpain, a famous watch brand from the Jurassic Mountains in Switzerland, launched a watch with the theme of Chinese and Forbidden City culture and donated it to the Palace Museum. The Forbidden City kept this watch in the Clock Museum, and put it together with the watch that Qianlong once loved. This special watch is called ‘Balpe Qiankun Caruso’ and will be the first modern watch to be hidden from the Palace Museum.

 Opportunity coincides. In the year Qianlong ascended the throne, Blancpain was born, linked to its brand. This is undoubtedly the most memorable piece in the history of watches and clocks. Due to the emergence of Blancpain, the Swiss watch industry has thus entered the ‘brand era’ from the ‘artisan era’: it has completed the birth of modern trade standards-the world’s first A registered watch brand. However, the reality is not as good as imagined. The conditions for the founder of Blancpain, Jehan-Jacques Blancpain, are undoubtedly simple in the early days of brand creation. He registered his profession as a watchmaker in a small town and worked in a house built in 1636 that initially served as a mail relay station. Looking back on this journey, it seems like a start to the waves, but it brings far-reaching significance to future generations.

 After the efforts of several generations of members of the family, Blancpain expanded its business to all over Europe in 1815, and in that year set up a small watch factory, which laid the foundation for Blancpain’s enduring prosperity for nearly two centuries. At that time, Blancpain watch manufacturing had become the largest and most prosperous industry in the area. The Blancpain family also introduced an escapement for the watch-a design that almost all Swiss mechanical watches use today, and specifically gives women’s watches a unique design. It is worth mentioning: Since the birth of Blancpain in 1735, no matter how the technology changes, the brand has always adhered to the production method of manual mechanical watches, has not been added to the production of flow, and its production process is full of The nature smells in the mountains.

 Blancpain Ladybird

 When Blancpain stepped into the 20th century, it has become a spotlight in the global watch field at that time. This fact can be felt from a series of brilliant achievements: In 1931, according to the requirements of the world’s famous French jewelry design manufacturer, Blancpain produced the famous ROLLS self-winding watch; in 1950, the famous Blancpain diving watch was worn on the wrists of the crew of Jacques Cousteau, because of a documentary film ‘The Silent World’ reflecting the marine world. And won the Cannes Film Festival Awards; In 1956, Blancpain launched the world’s smallest mechanical watch ‘Lady Bird’, swept the world aristocracy, and was favored by ladies at that time. Both celebrities, nobles and high society respect Blancpain.

 In 1983, Blancpain officially joined the world-renowned SMH group, which revealed a brand new milestone for the development of the brand. In less than a year after joining the SMH group, Blancpain pioneered another world-renowned watch: the world’s smallest mechanical watch that can display the moon phase profit and loss, week, month and date, and Launch of a moon phase watch designed for women. Looking at the history of Blancpain in recent decades, you will habitually find that its products seem to be associated with a series of ‘most’, ‘first’ and ‘unique’: In 1990, Blancpain launched the first And the only TOURBILLON tourbillon mechanical watch that can display the date and store eight days of power; in 1993, at the 300th anniversary of Blancpain’s founder’s birthday, the classic 7001 design was launched; in 1994, a 100-hour energy reserve was launched 2001 type automatic winding sports watch; in 1995, the 2100 sports series was selected by the world’s watch industry as the ‘best watch’ from 1995 to 1996; in 1996, the world’s first women’s chronograph with a built-in FLYBACK system was created and became women’s The only supplier of the flyback chronograph; in 1998, another minute repeater was introduced, which was not only compact but also the world’s only minute repeater with waterproof function at the time, and was patented. In 1999, at the World Basel Watch & Jewellery Show, Blancpain’s self-winding tourbillon two-handed multi-menu watch with chronograph section, only 7.75 mm thick and 27.6 mm wide, represented the world’s only unparalleled technological peak … …

 1991 was the most eye-catching year for Blancpain. Because of its pioneering work in mechanical watches-the ‘1735’ watch, it has a two-handed segmented chronograph, moon phase profit and loss, perpetual calendar, three questions and peace. The tourbillon has six functions in one. It brings together all the most complicated technology in a thin and light case. It takes 6 years to design, develop and manufacture the light. It has an incontestable world leading position: this automatic winding The perpetual calendar watch is composed of 740 parts, divided into 26 layers, the thickness of the movement is less than 10mm, and it has a platinum rotor that displays leap years and moon phases, and a very tiny titanium case is housed in The tourbillon and the two-second split-timer are hidden in an 18K rose gold movement inside a white gold case. The limited production of only 30 pieces worldwide shook the entire watch industry at that time.
