    - The J12 collection, introduced by Chanel in 1999, has become an emblem of the fashion house and is highly regarded among their timepiece offerings. This iconic watch was the brainchild of Jacques Hélleu, who was the chief designer at Chanel at the time. The name "J12" actually derives from the world of yacht racing, which is fitting given its association with the brand's vision in design aesthetics. One of the standout features of the J12 is its scratch-resistant ceramic case, which not only adds durability but also makes it suitable for watersports activities.

    - One of the latest addition to the J12 family is the exclusive "La Pausa" edition, created in a limited quantity. Chanel drew inspiration from a famous photograph of Mademoiselle Coco Chanel at her villa, La Pausa, where the dial of the watch features an artistic depiction of Mademoiselle Coco Chanel herself, with articulated hands that elegantly indicate the time.

    - Being offered in "like-new" condition, this rare white ceramic J12 comes accompanied by its full set of accessories. With its distinctive design, limited availability, and excellent condition, this J12 timepiece is highly coveted for collectors and aficionados alike.
