Daily Pampering: The Chanel J12 diving watch

Don’t you just hate it when you’re planning your diving trip and you realize your watch doesn’t match your diving gear? Just because you’re under water doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fashion. Leave it to Chanel to create an accessory that is spectacular both on land and at sea.

Chanel recently unveiled a professional diving version of the popular J12 watch (named for the luxurious racing yachts of the 1930s), one of the designers’ most iconic pieces. We discovered this miraculous marine watch at FirstwaterNews.com, and now it’s been aptly placed at the top of our ‘must have’ list.

The new J12 Marine is a water resistant authentic diving watch that can submerge to almost 985 feet (300 meters). The second and minute hands are luminous, so they can be read even when you’re down in the darkest depths of the ocean. Complete with a high-tech matte rubber strap and a caseback in engraved with stylized waves, the J12 also comes with options. Choose from 38 mm or 42 mm, and pick your color: all-white, all black and black and blue. Regardless of your color choice, each watch features sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating (colorless for the white watch, and tinged blue for the black).

The price of his underwater beauty: A mere $5,000.
