There are a lot of buzz words the watch aficionados need to hear before signing off on a watch's awesomeness. But if terms like caliber, tourbillon, Basel or revolution mean nothing to you when it comes to watches, then just take my word for it, the Chanel J12 Retrograde Mysterieuse is awesome.

The ceramic watch is beautifully designed, with an open face that shows us the inner workings of this transparent luxury timepiece. It was made to commemorate the 12th anniversary of Chanel's J12 watch series.
