Chanel J12 Matte Black Superleggera

Baselworld 2013 preview…

Chanel J12 Superleggera Black Matte chronograph Basel 2013

As you may recall, last year Chanelmade its black J12 ceramic watch with a matte finish for the first time, in a few different variations from the J12 family.  It looks like for 2013 they will continue with the matte black theme, offering the Superleggera chronograph in the finish.   The Superleggera chronograph itself is not a new model from Chanel (here’s the silver dialed model currently available) but this is a new look, and a good one at that — it should do well with fashion conscious Chanel fans.

You can read more about this piece — as well as what is perhaps a more important piece that Chanel will introduce this year, the J12 White Phantom (it is the 10th anniversary of the now iconic white J12) — over at the very insightful Watches by SJX blog.
