In the 1980s Rado started using a ceramic material for watch cases and bracelet. The material was innovative for being really hard to scratch, and not loosing that glossy luster. Specialty of Chanel J12 Chromatic is just in that – it is made of a new proprietary ceramic titanium material that is of course highly scratch resistant with a hardness close to that of sapphire.
The J12 Chromatic features a spectrum of models, 38mm and 41mm case sizes each with an automatic mechanical movement, and a more petite 33mm case size with a quartz movement. Water resistant to 200 meters. There are also diamond and diamond baguette encrusted models (set in an 18k white gold bezel).
