Chanel recently unveiled a new twist to its iconic J12 ceramic collection with the addition of a moonphase complication. The new Chanel J12 Moonphase is offered in both the brand’s flagship black and white ceramic lines, both in the 38mm case size.

Diamond-bezeled and gem-set models are also offered, and I must say that at least some aspects of these models look quite nice, namely the moonphase:
While horological purists may scoff at the watch as being more form over function, this is no surprise to anyone including Chanel — they know their desired customer well and the new J12 moonphase should be right in the sweet spot of many fashionistas.
