Joining two ceramic cases together.

Chanel has just released a new asymmetrical version of its popular J12 watch. Taking the need to choose between Chanel’s black or white ceramic versions out of the equation, the watch splits down from the two o’clock to four o’clock positions of the watch.

The colors are taken from two separate ceramic watch cases rather than made as one. The reason for this is that the two materials could come apart or join unevenly during the heating process. And so, two cases are cut with a fine tool and fixed together.

While the case is made from two pieces, both the dial and bezel are made as one single unit. Due to the joining of two solids for the case, water-resistance has been brought down from 200 meters to just 50 meters. The J12 Paradoxe features the same COSC-certified Cal. 12.1 movements seen in the new J12s, boasting 70 hours of power reserve, and 28 jewels.

Priced at $8,050 USD, this is one fashionable watch for those looking for a little more personal flair.
