BASEL 2013 Chanel j12 Matte Black Superleggera

BASEL 2013 Chanel j12 Matte Black Superleggera
Pre-Baselworld Press Release Chanel j12 Matte Black Superleggera
  Chanel is not the first brand that comes to mind when the general public thinks of "luxury" watches. Who wants to run with the mainstream crowd anyhow? This is Pre Baselworld 2013 release and a further extension of the well received ceramic J12 from last year. This time it is a Matte Black Superleggera Chronograph. 
  The dial is a bit busy for W&R, that said, it appears to be well executed. The subdial hands work well with the flow of the numeric numbers. Many watches of late have been doing a black dial with red accents, Chanel joins the crowd. The reason though, it looks stunning. Hard to beat a nice black dial with a splash of blood red. A ceramic black bracelet really sets this watch off. Far superior to the scratch prown PVC bracelets. 
  Chanel is using a COSC certified ETA 2892 automatic movement, housed in the J12 Superlaggera's 42mm case. No word on the price as of yet, safe bet she will not be inexpensive.
