The trend toward new materials and ceramics heats up further in this all-new Chanel J12 Chromatic watch. It may look like a steel watch, but it’s actually ceramic blended with titanium through a patented technology that was some time in the making. Chanel sought out the silvery colored ceramic material when it was looking for a new alternative to white and black. Not only is it ultra-hard, scratch-resistant and ultra chic, but also it is so high-tech that it actually changes color somewhat based on the amount of light it is exposed to, offering an array of gray hues from pale to stormy – encouraging Chanel to fondly call it stormy and cloudy in references. The watch is being offered in three sizes, with the smallest housing a quartz movement and the two larger versions housing automatic movements – all bedecked with varying degrees of diamonds.
