Laird Hamilton for Chanel J-12 Marine Diver

Surfing legend Laird Hamilton is the new Chanel ambassador for its diving watch, the recently released J-12 Marine.

Laird Hamilton is hailed as one of the most revolutionary big-wave surfers, a co-inventor of tow-in surfing and generous philanthropist. He is a true waterman, passionate for the ocean, and his life has been dedicated to developing new techniques and pushing the boundaries of big wave surfing. Laird is most passionate, however, about environmental causes, focusing his efforts to protecting the oceans and influencing others to follow in his path.

John Galantic, President and Chief Operating Officer of Chanel, Inc. states, “Laird’s daring spirit and love for the ocean are in perfect harmony with the inspiration behind the J12 Marine watch. We are excited for him to bring his energy, original style and fearlessness to this iconic watch.”

“I am honored to have the opportunity to be an ambassador for Chanel’s J12 Marine Watch and to work with a brand of such quality and heritage,” states Laird Hamilton.

This watch is authentic. I have put it through ‘the test’ and it has survived me. As a result, I look forward to representing the J12 Marine and this exciting new partnership.”

In honor of this partnership, Chanel is pleased to support the Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit, environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches, for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education.
