After the classic "J12," the "J12 Mirror" and the recent "Mademoiselle J12" -- paying homage to Gabrielle Chanel -- the French label is back with the "J12 Graffiti," a women's watch celebrating street art with a fresh, young, contemporary look.

This limited-edition model is similar in design to its predecessors, with a steel and white high-tech ceramic case, offering optimal scratch-resistance, and a matching white high-tech ceramic strap with a steel triple-folding buckle.

This latest Chanel creation stands out with its polished rhodium-plated numerals. Instead of taking their usual place around the dial, the numerals are deconstructed, interlaced -- echoing graffiti style -- on the lower half of the white lacquered dial.

The new "J12" also has polished rhodium-plated hands, a fixed bezel and a steel screw-down crown.

The watch has a high-precision quartz movement, hours, minutes and seconds hands, and a date window. It is water-resistant to 200 meters.

Available in two sizes (33mm and 38mm), the "J12 Graffiti" is a limited, 1,200-edition release.
