Official description

In 2022, CHANEL marks a new milestone in the history of the J12 watch, presenting the first J12 33mm equipped with a self-winding caliber, a true technical tour de force and an encapsulation of the House’s watchmaking savoir-faire.

Designed in Paris by Arnaud Chastaingt, Director of the CHANEL Watchmaking Creation Studio, then developed and assembled at the CHANEL Manufacture at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the J12 33mm is equipped with an unprecedented self-winding movement: the Caliber 12.2.

Designed and developed exclusively by the Swiss Manufacture Kenissi, the Caliber 12.2 is a miniaturized motorization in which each component has been adjusted to ensure a unique performance.

Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, the Caliber 12.2 is decorated and endowed with an oscillating mass in the form of a perfect circle, the signature of CHANEL Watchmaking. It is chronometer-certified by the COSC, the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, and has a power reserve of 50 hours.

The J12 33mm Caliber 12.2 is available in black or white highly resistant ceramic.
